Romance (love) facts for kids
Romance is a feeling of excitement and mystery associated with love. In relationships, it involves a strong emotional attraction towards the other person. Romantic love is the opposite of platonic love.
The modern concept of romantic love comes from the medieval ideals of chivalry, as set out in its chivalric romance literature. It was made popular in Western culture by the concept of courtly love. Knights were often said to have had intimate relationships with the noble ladies they served. Since marriage was commonly just a formal arrangement without love, courtly love allowed women to be emotionally intimate with a man.
