In honor of Valentine's Day, I decided to share with you the most romantic thing ever written. You may disagree, but you would be wrong. But, before I reveal it, I'm sure you have some guesses:
If Fabio is on the cover, you guessed wrong. However, one of the funniest things in the history of all things funny is when Fabio got hit by a goose while riding a rollercoaster. Video here: Fabio vs the Goose
If your choice involves a 100+ year-old man hitting on a co-dependent teenage girl, you aren't even in the right ballpark.
Shakespeare (who I love) even got this one wrong. He might have called them a "A pair of star-cross'd lovers", I call them "A pair of star-cross'd idiots." Perhaps one of the most UN-romantic things ever written. Two lust obsessed teenagers turn on their families and end up mistakenly killing themselves. Morons.
If you guessed Doctrine & Covenants 132:19, then you are a winner in more ways than one.
While the world defines marriage as "'til death do us part" (verse 15) A God who truly understands love, offers us the opportunity (verse 19) to enter into an eternal marriage that can last beyond this mortal existence. What could possibly be more romantic than that? A love that transcends death and time. And no need to visit an Apothecary.
