ROMANCE Name Institution Date In different parts of the world the different people in these cultures have very different ways in which they show romance or portray their affection to other people. In most cases marriage is the ultimate show of affection between two people however this is not the case for the inhabitants of the Nordic regions of Europe. In countries such as Norway and Iceland most couples have been together for more than twenty years and yet they never considered the option of marriage. “Bjorn Lindahl and Nina Kjolaas do not feel inclined to declare their love in front of some anonymous official in a municipal building or in a church. So they have never married -- not when they moved in together not when they bought their first house not when they had their son now 16.” (Lyall 2002). In Norway for instance the citizens are 2017). In conclusion we can see that the European countries have a wide range of ideologies on how they show romance and affection towards each other. For instance in France it is quite clear that when two people get into a relationship there is an abundance of exclusivity. This means that neither one of the people in the relationship has the audacity to venture out to create new flings. In Norway the people don’t believe that for two people to start a family they need be in a relationship. References Chevalier-Karfis C. (2017 August 25).
