In The Name Of Love

I always get fascinated with some interesting news around the globe. This is the advantage I got from not concentrating too much on Filipino channel as I don't have it here in my place. Hahahaha....

Just got curious with the recent news about Duchess Maria Del Rosario Cayetana Alfonsa Victoria Eugenia Francisca Fitz-James Stuart y de Silva...wheww...wonder how she learns to write her name when she was in pre school. (lol)

Well...this famous personality is creating a bigger name more so due to her well publicized wedding plans. This 85 year old Duchess who is known to be one of the wealthiest women in Spain is set to marry a public servant, Alfonso Diez, who is 24 years younger.....all in the name of love.

Yes..you heard it right! The 18th Duchess of Alba will give away all her personal fortune in order to set herself free and be with the man she loves. Diez was said to have signed a document renouncing all his claims to the wealth of his lady love. Despite of this, the Duchess still distributed to all her children and grand children their inheritance in advance. Her children were said to have opposed the wedding plans, thus, the Duchess decided to give their inheritance to get their approval. The Duchess and Diez were close friends for years now. Her wealth is estimated to be in between $850 million to $4.84 billion USD.

On a personal note, I guess this move of the Duchess to give away her wealth in advance and the decision of Diez to sign a document to renounce claims over the former's wealth is a clear manifestation that these two souls are madly deeply in love. No doubt that their age and age gap is questionable but we must remember that "love has no rules". This kind of love is one in a million! Some people go for companionship and to them, this is all that matters most.

Hmmm....Let's just be happy for them. This only proves that....

  1. Im from sapin and i can tell you...

    Its not love!!

    She is La Duquesa De Alba, It has so many titles that she does not have to kneel down nor before the king or the pope.

    And the man who married wiht she, its only for the money and the castles.

  2. "Why do I keep on loving you when it's clear that you don't feel the same way to me? It seems that just as I can't force you to love me, I can't force myself to stop loving you." Unknown

    "I never knew until that moment how bad it could hurt to lose something you never really had." From the television show The Wonder Years

    "As soon as forever is through, I'll be over you." Toto

    Love, Frank Sinatra argues, is "a many splendored thing"; but love also involves a lot of suffering-especially in the case of unrequited love. Love can feel like being in paradise as well as being in hell. In both cases, the best suggestion (following Winston Churchill's advice ) is to keep on going. Why is it that love is so ambivalent, and why do we keep on loving even when it leads to heartbreak?

  3. Given love's huge positive significance, rejection is experienced as extremely painful. The greatest romantic heartache is the lack of reciprocity-that is, the awareness that you are not loved by your beloved. Such awareness usually leads to a decrease in the intensity of love and ultimately to humiliation. This decrease does not necessarily occur immediately; the unrequited lover might persist in trying to win the other's heart. Indeed, many books and movies feature aspiring lovers doggedly persisting in their efforts to win the hearts of their beloved. In some cases, love can even briefly intensify while the rejected lover tries to win the beloved's heart.
