Loving someone for life gets a bit of a rough treatment in the book On Romantic Love. As it turns out, many couples fall out of love and seem to be staying together out of a sense of commitment. There are alternative ways of going about romance, polyamory for instance, but is loving one person for life really as difficult as it is portrayed in the book? There are statistics in the book, could there be any way to explain how those statistics are biased or incorrect? Use your own experience and the information in the book provided to decide how difficult love lasting a lifetime might actually be. If it is difficult, why is it so difficult? What things could people do differently to make loving for a lifetime easier? Is it mostly in *who* someone choses to love?
