There is no doubt that romantic love has been reinvented in the modern age. So what does romance look like in the 21st century?
Since time began, love has been mankind's primary obsession. We just love to be in love and we still believe in happy endings. So even if some things stay the same, love in the new millennium has evolved to become all about choice.

Today, we can choose to stay single, we can live together, and we can marry who-ever we choose. What was once considered taboo in relationships, has now (almost!) become the norm. We've come a long way from the conservative 1940s and 1950s where any love match that wasn't considered to be the societal norm risked becoming ostracised by society and even their own families.
The question today is whether we use our freedom well. As much as we still fall headlong into romantic love, it seems that partnership has become challenging when two individuals row their boats in different directions. The reality of many modern day couples is how we have to juggle the demands of parenthood and full-time work. Then there is the increase of divorce and the difficulties single parents face, as well as those couples navigating the complexities of establishing new romantic relationships with children in tow.
And don't forget the impact of the digital world on modern love and romance. Technology has redefined the way many people meet and form relationships. Rules of the dating game have changed.
And of course, falling in love is one thing, but staying in love? If you're wondering how, make sure to visit my page on
how to save a relationship.
Love has no guarantees and what will never change, is that it requires a leap of faith. As many challenges as we're faced with in today's world, I haven't given up on romance ~ and I sincerely hope you won't either...
