Then there are misunderstandings in life that can ruin your love depending on how much weightage you give to such negative things in life.

Gays is not a small problem in the society. There is no substantial and concrete solution to this problem so far. Love is not smooth in any couple’s life.

There needs to be a helping attitude that works in the direction of normalizing life. There needs to be a respect for passion and love. For instance, this passion could be theater or music or anything else. There has to be a key differentiator among lust, infatuation, love, and temptation. The complexities in life need to handle properly.
