Why is it that all great love stories have either sad endings or great sacrifices?
Wouldn’t it be nice to have a actual happy love story?
No offense to O Henry, but why on earth James and Della bought gifts for each other without ever discussing it? Come on, they were poor, They were in love. Little bit communication would have helped, wouldn’t it? They could’ve bought something more useful from that money.
So here we are, celebrating their love but never noticing, as a couple, lack of communication was so evident here.
I just think, for a great and lasting love story, sacrifices shouldn’t be required. It’s the understanding between couple which leads to compromises at times but one should never have to give up something he/she loves. What say???
Hmmm… there are more things that bother me about all these love stories.. but in later posts… 🙂
