The Course of Love by Alain de Botton

Love in the modern age, is not what it used to be. What exactly does it mean to fall in love and live happily ever after? When two people meet, friends often ask the question, ‘How did you meet?’ This is the case with Rabih and Kirsten when they first meet. They respond with ease and are often happy to tell the story. However, no ones bothers to ask ‘What happened next?’. When Rabih and Kristen fall in love, they get married and it is assuemed that is the happily ever after, when in fact it is just the beginning. This story explores the story of marriage, a modern relationship with the joys of love, fear of real commitment and the issue of problems which eventually begin to surface over a life time.
