lol this picture is three(ish) years old I look nothing like it now
okay, I know cheating is technically bad and shouldn't be used as a central plot device. Cheating = bad. I know this.
HOWEVER, forbidden love is my trope and this love story is beautiful, genuine and elevated by Shailene Woodley and Callum Turner in every single way. I couldn't help but think of my grandma, a young girl who was born into southern wealth and gave it all up for an Italian kid from Brooklyn at age 16 in the 1950s.
love is so damn powerful man. i'm living proof of it.
