Our personal story and our relationship are influenced by generally accepted ideas about love, which prevent us from enjoying the fact that we are currently living with a great partner. If we understand these myths, we can become happier people.
Our love stories are not only the fruit of our desire or event. They are formed also under the influence of the accepted in the society models, reflect collective and subjective ideas about an ideal relationship. Hedonism and individualism are added today as ways of building relationships with the world.
