I've been thinking about how King Edward VIII gave up the throne of England to marry Wallis Simpson. He had no doubt there would be scandal, he didn't care she was divorced, and he knew she would never be accepted by the Royal family and possibly the British people, but despite the consequences he truly loved her and put her first. The man abdicated and left it all behind.
With Valentine's Day fast approaching, the word love is being branded about everywhere. Roses for the sweethearts, chocolates for the sweet-toothed, diamonds for the engagements, hearts all over the place right now in more ways than one. Some people will be showered in gifts this year but aren't these things just material objects that are easy to buy?
Edward the VIII gave up more than just a title, and many curse him to this day for dereliction of duty. How can we really tell if someone loves us?
