Make sure you check out our previous issues Love & Romance (Vintage and Funny Pics) and Love, Romance & Other Natural Disasters.

"Oh Darling, Let's Be Adventurers!"

Travel is wonderful for romance and renewing the "spark", but it does require some nice and healthy-looking finances:

Same goes about choosing the "dream house":

This wedding comes with plenty of helpful advice (you can also read some good advice here):

Bewitched... Dazzled... Bewildered...

And of course, kids are wonderful:

Here is a happy family in the Stalinist Russia in the 1930; painting by Gerasimov -

Even arguments look great in vintage illustration. Here is "The Man Across the Hall", art by Tom Lovell for Woman's Home Companion, 1956

Here is a great advice:

Ladies get swept off their feet! - A tender farewell and sailor's goodbye (photos from the WW2 ):

Here is the story behind the last photograph (bottom row, on the right):

"It is December 1941. During WW2 a photographer was assigned to see what would happen during a blackout. With all the lights turned out, Harold Dale Mouser, 17, didn’t waste anytime. He is seen kissing his girlfriend Lenore Dorthy Frank of Seattle. The two eventually got married and raised five children."

These kisses require some practice:

Here is Deborah Walley holding a... rocket? -

Hayley Mills in the "Family Way", 1968:

and an Italian actress Christine Carere (or Carrere):

These photos have taken us aback, we have to admit... What is going on here? -

And then, there is a "bionic woman":

What happens at the wedding, stays at the wedding

... especially when an embarrassing disaster happens there, and the photographer catches it on film:

Pretty extreme wedding present:

Less dangerous variation:

Married... to a cushion! -

Here is the story behind this picture: "A South Korean man living in Tokyo married a dakimakura, a life-sized cushion which has an anime cartoon girl drawn on it. The girl is Fate Testarossa from anime comic Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha. Local TV footage shows the man visiting a theme park with the cushion and going on a rollercoaster and a carousel ride. They then dine at a restaurant. Anime body cushions have become a trend with young men in Japan and Korea."... No comment.

Love is Grand!

Are you bored? -

This statue can't bear to see it:

Is this true? -

After you tied the knot... rules sometimes change! -

Two sides of one coin:

Excuses, excuses... -

The proverbial "Heart of Ice"! -

(original unknown)

...and the "Heart of Stone":

(original unknown)

And this arrangement can be all too true, sometimes -
