Romance and relationships

Do you believe in love? There are many different types of loving relationships: the love that exists between parents and children; the love that exists between a man and a woman; and the love that exists between friends.

The love between a man and a woman, especially young men and women, always seems to have periods of romance and happiness, along with periods of pain and separation. Khmer movies and music videos often show this.

The  young couples featured in many music videos often end up breaking up at the end and commiting suicide ( see pages 6 and 7).

In ancient times, people would use horoscopes to predict their future love.  When parents arrange their children’s marriages, many of them go to fortune-tellers to see whether the couple’s signs are compatible.  And although society has developed rapidly, this superstition still exists today (see page 8).

Related to this theme of love, we found a young man who enjoys writing poems about young love.  He is so good that he has received scholarships to study in New Zealand and Germany (see page 4).
