戀與愛 / Falling in Love

今晚在家看 Captain Corelli's Mandolin (Nicolas Cage and Penelope Cruz, 2001), 其中有一片段,老婦告訴那年青主角說: 「戀愛就未必是愛,雙戀完畢之後那段長長的旅程才是愛.」您們認為她說得對嗎? (也請看San Wen Ji 散文集: 愛的定義)

In the movie Captain Corelli's Mandolin (Nicolas Cage and Penelope Cruz, 2001), there is a scene in which the old woman was telling the main character: "Falling in love is not love, the long journey after is." Don't you think there is certain truth to that?

Once read this: Falling in love is easy. Falliing out of love is when love begins.

Hi Ruth:

愛之深,恨之切. How many people can stop themselves from flipping to the other side of love that is hate. I don't know whether you saw Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner's "The War of the Roses" (1989). I think in the end, that was what happened, although their realization of "when love begins again" came a bit too late :(

BTW, I hope you are enjoying your vacation :)

"Falling in love is easy. Falling out of love is when love begins." The author's meaning is that: it's easy to fall in love because he/she is good looking, famous, ... However, after some time, such feeling will fade and we fall out of love. It's then true love begins because we love each other no longer because of the superficial elements.

Hi Ruth: Ah, a bit of infactuation at the beginning .... till one gets to know the true person. There is truth to what the authour says. Thanks for the clarification.
