"Love is a battle. Lost in advance," Marc Marronnier begins his story, the hero of the acclaimed novel by Frederic Beigbeder "Love lives three years". The main character is sure: any relationship is doomed, because he himself never loved a woman for more than three years.

All his love moved along the same scenario: The first stage is the stage of love. The second stage is a little cooling, the appearance of friendly tenderness. The third stage is alienation, cooling, boredom. However, Marc Marronnier, believing in his theory of "three years of love," is afraid.

He does not want the relationship to cool down, each time he fearfully awaits the approaching third anniversary, until finally he finds a woman with whom he is connected by something more, than bed or mutual sympathy. What do you think about love? Are there any ways to make it longer?
