I watched a film recently and the following questions came to mind.
What would you do if you were a girl in love with a boy who was in love with a different girl?
Alternatively, what would you do if you were a boy in love with a girl who was in love with a different boy?
Let's assume the boy or girl you loved agreed to go out with you, maybe even consider you seriously, but they can't shake the fact that they are still in love with someone else.
What do you do then? Is that enough to live on? Suppose one day you go off and settle in Hollywood bliss- but you know your husband is still in love with a different woman, even if he also cares about you.
