I believe in anger, laughter and nervousness. Why shouldn't I believe in romantic love?
Now, WHY we have these feelings, on the other hand, is another can of worms...
I believe in it because I have seen my parents succeed at true love.
But then again... I think somewhere around 60% to maybe even 85% of relationships are not true love. They are more centered around love from necessity. Maybe the percentage isn't that high but I know for a fact that it is relatively high.
There are just too many girls I know, that their husbands are fairly oblivious too, that are only in "love" because they needed shelter, food, money, got pregnant, or just grabbed the closest guy to them.
Men do the same thing.
I know one girl who prompted to cheat on and leave her husband before she got pregnant. Another who stole money from multiple boyfriends from their ATM cards. I could tell stories.
Food for thought: when Facebook was invented, divorce skyrocketed in large measurements from it. True story. Makes you wonder if love is thinner than what we think.

You got anything from divorce lawyers to psychologists that you can choose from.

There probably is, but seeing people that "fall in love" and break up a week later isn't helping the concept.
Taking my words out of context isn't satisfiable argument. Just changing the subject.
I am not going to bother discussing you're opinion of me and what I thought was credible, but you could find some research that contradicts. That would be productive.

That is, plain and simply, untrue. You've not provided any evidence for it, and you've been corrected regarding divorce statistics. Maintaining your belief in the face of facts is a great example of denialism though, and you're not really worth wasting any more time on.
I refer to that as the rabbit year and yes I believe in it, but it doesn't last forever, you can still keep the fire alive though it just needs a little bit of work once the "rabbit" year has gone by, that first year of every relationship is when you learn to know the person you love inside out and most of your life revolves around that person... not to mention the insane amount of sex involved(hence why I call it the rabbit year). The intensity then goes down a little bit but as I said it's perfectly possible to keep that fire burning... just not as intense and other things come into play as well, you might say the love between you and your partner grows more mature.
