The course of true love never did run smooth ~ William Shakespeare
This statement by William Shakespeare is so true. In songs, especially country western, in theater, in movies, on T.V. and in books, love never runs smoothly. And would we want it to?

I think not. If it ran smoothly, boy would meet girl, and it would be a straight shot to boy and girl live happily ever after. There would be no journey, nothing to root for, we’d probably turn off the TV, walk out of the theater (because it would be a really short play), or throw the book at the wall.
Why would we want to read, listen or watch something like that? We wouldn’t. The more conflict and obstacles our hero and heroine have to overcome the sweeter the reward of their happily ever after for the audience.
Shakespeare in his wisdom new this inherently and used it wisely in his works.
Now if you’re talking REAL life, we probably do want our relationships to run smoothly. But they don’t always, and we learn from each experience, disagreement or argument. I think there would be something WRONG with a relationship where there was no conflict at all. The give and take in a relationship is how we learn to compromise, and gains respect toward our partners.
Can you think of a movie, TV show or book where the romance was obstacle free?
I love “Sleepless in Seattle”, “Fifty 1st dates”, “When Harry Met Sally”, and “Enough Said” just to name a few. All these movies had conflict or obstacles to overcome.
What is your favorite love story: movie or book?
HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!!!!!
