You hear about people as old as 70/80 falling in love and I find it so cute/romantic.
Yet like Fivr said its more about perception than ability and I am actually glad that Indian TV is looking into a MATURED sort of romance than the ordinary 18-30 year old love stories we have dominating TV. I think seeing another side to relationships than just when we are young living in a joint family vaghera vaghera.
A lot of people nowadays wait till 30.. I don't know about everywhere but especially in UK you see how people around you are waiting to find a responsible and caring and mostly mature person who can take marriage with the good and the bad.
I mean marriage isn't just love and babies. Its about understanding and being able to emotionally and physically being able to commit to somebody whilst juggling bills, household issues. So if you are young and don't find someone like that then why not wait till you meet someone who shares your ideas and dreams and understands you.
^^ That sounds like babble.. but I hope you get what I mean.. =)
I don't think it sounds like babble; in fact, I think you are absolutely right. There isn't and shouldn't be any age limit on love, and for that matter on passionate love.
I think we have gotten used to the idea in film and TV of love being this magical, fairy tale world with dream sequences and roses and romance all the time. But life isn't like that, and fairytales don't last. I mean, no body ever tried to find out what life was like after
Cinderella married the prince and had three children and a mountain of food to cook
Actually, it's exciting and interesting to (hopefully) see a show about two people not "falling" in love, but learning
to love, which is a different thing and probably longer lasting than the 'love at first sight' school.
