Can I just say— it IS very important that Disney is redefining the concept of “True Love” (with Brave and Frozen), but I am still happy that Frozen did not completely remove or mock romance, because if we remove romance and couples’ love from our media/culture completely, I’m not sure that’s wise either. We’re already such a sexualized society and that’s all good and fine, but there are other aspects to a relationship too…
I do believe that True Love is different from Romantic Love, but I also heard somewhere that ‘romantic love’ only lasts six months; romantic love doesn’t last forever, true— but it doesn’t have to completely die either. It only dies when you let it. Also, it depends on your idea of what’s romantic or not.
