      Love is a strong positive emotion of regard and affection. It also has something to do with passion and compassion. Love is indeed an infinite word. It is a word being uttered since the beginning of time.

      But if love truly exists, why do a lot of people in the world fall out of love? Many would say that they have a change of heart. Or simply, I dont know what happened but I just dont love him/her anymore.

      It is so frustrating and depressing to hear your love one tells you that he/she just dont love you anymore. It will surely rip my heart out and broke me into pieces. I dont believe that people could possibly be fall out of love. They simply made a choice. And that choice is to be with someone else.

      Three years ago I happened to read a book by Emily Giffin, Love The One You're With ---- is a beautiful story about a woman revisiting her feelings for an ex-boyfriend. It is a beautifully written story about a woman, Ellen, who is married to the brother of her college roommate and best friend. Her husband, Andy, is a caring, loving man. One day, Ellen runs into Leo, her most serious ex-boyfriend, on the street, and sits down with him for a small chat and some coffee.

Leo gives Ellen, a photographer, a professional lead that she would kill for. After much deliberation, she takes it up, deciding that no harm could come out of it. Until she finds out that Leo is writing the piece for which she is taking the pictures, and that they will be working together.

The series of events leads to Ellen and Leo revisiting their feelings for each other and Ellen wondering whether or not she made the right decision by marrying Andy.

The story is filled with incidents, which, if looked at individually, would make Ellen come across as a selfish, disloyal woman. But the character development has been so masterfully taken care of by the author that the readers can relate to Ellens character and understand her. The readers know why she is doing what she is doing, and understand that shes not selfish, shes only human. She is a human being with some flaws, just like everyone else.

The story is set mostly in Atlanta and New York City. The novel also nicely describes the contrasting ways of life in the two cities, the culture, the people, the sizes of their homes, and everything else. The narrative is such that readers can visualize almost everything they are reading about. They can feel the tension between the couple when they argue with each other. They can feel Ellens restlessness when she is out of work for a while.

This novel helps me realize that rekindling old flame is possible. However, it depends on the person on how he/she will handle things. The story can actually give hope to some struggling marriage life. And well, contentment can save your relationship.

Enjoy love, love and love...Happy Valentines!
