There are certain movies I’ve watched over the years that taught me a lot about love and marriage. I watched most of them before I fell in love for the first time and then a few more before I was married. Watching them again – 12 years of marriage later – and I’m reminded of exactly what they taught me.
Whenever a TV show or a movie upset me in any way during childhood my mum would run up to me and say, “It’s all make believe. It’s not real.”

Still, the stories come from somewhere. Someone has sat down and written the TV shows and movie scripts and many are based on real experiences. When something rings true it probably is, at least a little bit.
You may not have heard of some of these movies. Fate delivered them to me via midday movies when I was lying sloth-like on the couch trying to avoid uni work/house work/ real work.
Remember those days when we had time to watch the midday movies?
