There are romanticized couples that society has told us to look up to. However, they aren’t the best role models. Most of them are glorified, because they did something dangerous and dire. These romanticized couples took drastic measures, which is why they’re remembered and honored. You can admire their stories, but don’t strive to be like them.
1. Romeo and Juliet
Romeo and Juliet are one of the most romanticized couples that shouldn’t be looked up to. Yes, they had a forbidden love. Yes, it’s sweet that they sacrificed everything for one another. However, they both died in the end. They were young, barely knew one another, and died earlier than they needed to. With any hope, your love story turns out a bit better than theirs did.
