to me. Why not believe that convention
, all stand powerless and in awe
Because they don't.
People who fall in love with other people and, more importantly, stay in love with them, don't exist in a social void. They are products of convention, subjects of social custom.
We might like to delude ourselves into thinking that we are different - hey, I myself could give you a dissertation about why my marriage is a bold cry in the face of conformity - but the truth is, we choose the people we love with the same engrained tools that we've been indoctrinated into using from the day we were born.
