Is true love possible in this kind of society? Maybe not, if true love 
requires the kind of commitment that survives disappointments, spats, 
real crises (that old "for better or worse" thing) instead of the get, 
enjoy the temporary buzz, kvetch, forget and move on that consumerism 
encourages.
(First stanza of "Her Anxiety" -Yeats)
Earth in beauty dressed
Awaits returning spring.
All true love must die,
Alter at the best
Into some lesser thing.
Prove that I lie.
