The Course of Love

The Course of Love

By  Alain de Botton

This is a modern love story. It is a story about learning to survive, endure and flourish in a relationship. Above all, it is a story full of tenderness and sympathy for the hard work of keeping love going, and full of hope that we can make it through.

What happens when true love meets real life?

Meet Rabih and Kirsten. Two people who meet, fall in madly love and get married. In most stories this would be how it ends. Here, it is just the beginning.

Embarking on a shared life path with no idea where it will lead, both Rabih and Kirsten believe that all you need is love. But in the real world, love isn't a feeling - it's a skill. And once they've settled down, started a home and a family, life gets a lot more complicated. . .

This is a modern love story. It is a story about learning to survive, endure and flourish in a relationship. Above all, it is a story full of tenderness and sympathy for the hard work of keeping love going, and full of hope that we can make it through.
