I'll admit it: I'm a romantic at heart. I don't believe in soulmates because I have critical thinking skills, but I *do* love the concept of building a life with someone special. But as with many things that sound good in theory, monogamous romantic love is more complicated in practice. When a couple that's clearly incompatible or not ready for lifelong commitment gets married, a divorce often follows. But what were those weddings like? Did guests witness anything that made the relationship's demise seem inevitable?

I just don't understand it. While I ruminate on social conditioning and power dynamics, enjoy reading these selections.
