This refers to agape love not romantic love. In my book I talk about the influence of the writers and media on love addicts. They are a "contributing factor," to love addiction. They tell us we can't get enough of love. I just wish they would slip in a qualifying word like agape so we know we are not talking about erotic, passionate, romantic, preferential love.
I want this on my tombstone.
Romantic love is not enough to sustain us.
Romantic love is superficial compared to other forms of love like agape.
Romantic love ebbs and flows; agape is eternal.
Romantic love is not enough to save a relationship.
