What is the real story about Valentine’s Day?

NO, Valentine’s Day is not celebrated to commemorate the love of Romeo and Juliet. In fact, the story behind the origin of this day of love and compassion is very dark. It is believed that during the third century when the Roman empire was ruled by Emperor Claudius II Gothicus, there was a Christian priest named Valentine who stood against the hard leadership of Claudius and took the side of love. During his reign Claudius the cruel, would forcefully separate men from their families to recruit them in his army to fight his battles. People used to be very scared of him and thousands of couples were broken up because of his hunger for war. 

But Valentine, who was just a simple priest began to secretly help the soldiers marry their lovers before they were sent off to war. Claudius found out about Valentine’s acts and had him thrown into prison and announced his execution.

In jail, Valentine fell in love with the daughter of the jailer who was blind. It is said that on the eve of his execution without any tool to write, Valentine wrote her a sonnet with the ink he squeezed from the violets and it made the blind girl see again. Unfortunately, their love story was not meant to be continued and Valentine was executed the very next day. The story of Valentine became very famous and eventually, he was granted sainthood and the Catholic Church created a feast in his honor. The church picked 14th February as the day to celebrate saint Valentine’s fight and passion for love.

How can a person be a good partner?

Relationships are not just about cuddles and cute moments all the time. With love, relationships also bring responsibility and duties in your life which you have to respect and follow for the sake of your union with a person. From handling the outbursts of your partner to consoling them when they are sad or distressed, relationships are about reliability and rationality.

A person can only become a good partner for their lover when they truly respect them and their interests. Every relationship has ups and downs, only a strong-willed and devoted lover can withstand them and refrain from falling apart and out of love. The process of staying together amid chaos in a relationship is very tough and an impossible task for some, but when a person loves the other person unconditionally, falling apart is never an option. Whenever you feel that your partner is drifting away from you, use occasions like Valentine’s to your advantage to save your relationship and incite joy and passion in your partner’s heart.
