The Fairytale

We all want it. Boy and girl meet; fall madly in love with each other; live happily ever after.

Where does it come from, this idea of everlasting love? It’s obviously not a new premise (remember Romeo and Juliet?). The question is: Is our premise romantic of love genetically inbred, or is it merely a product of plays and Hollywood films?

The question begs to be asked: The chicken or the egg?
