“In romantic relationships, falling in love is mainly a Western concept of moving from a feeling of neutrality towards a person to one of love. The term is generally used to describe a (eventual) love that is strong. The use of the term “fall” implies that the process is in some way uncontrollable, risky, irreversible, and that it puts the lover in a state of vulnerability, in the same way the word “fall” is used in the phrase “to fall ill” or “to fall into a trap”.
A British study published in British Medical Journal and carried out by doctors John and David Gallaher, of the University of Cardiff in Wales, showed that married people live longer and have better physical and mental health. This study also confirmed that have a relation of long-term partner also improves the quality of life.
