Stories from around the World

What role does love play in your country? What status does love have in your culture? Do people put a lot of emphasis on love between partners, family, friends, etc., or is it more frowned upon? Is love the dominant force in your life or is success, status and possession more important, or even more desirable?

Different countries, cultures and religions put different emphasis on love and there’s nothing necessarily wrong with that. On the contrary, learning about the different parts of the world and their ideas of love is, in fact, an act of love! Remember that one aspect of love is understanding. Not necessarily agreeing, but understanding and respecting other people, other ways of thinking, and other ways of life.

And since, deep down, love is a universal language – despite the differences in culture and language – we would like to know about and learn from your experience!
