From TED, and the NY Times
1)Today, in the NY Times, there was a lengthy article about Pope Francis: In it, is said Bergoglio's favorite book is Manzini's 'The Betrothed' (he's read it at least 3x). It was published in 1842. He said it's a good read before one's marriage. It's not in the Berkeley library system, but I haven't checked out link+ for it, yet. I'm not sure if it's in English/translated, or only in Spanish (which would be fun, too). Ah, it's Italian. "It has been called the most famous and widely read novel of the Italian language".  Link to wikipedia article about it
2) Mandy Len Catron's TED talk (on love)
God is love! An excellent talk.
3)the 36 Questions that lead to love:
the Psychology Today article, with the questions, link.
caveat: falling in love isn't the same as staying in love
love is a choice, made by both, repeatedly, without assurance of reciprocation:
