Our partner, HowAboutWe, has been hard at work polling readers to see how many of them are allowed to sleep in the same bed if they bring someone home to their parents’ house. And since the holiday season is underway, it makes perfect sense to inquire about this topic right now.
Of those polled, 40% were allowed to have their boyfriend or girlfriend sleep in the same bed when they brought them home to their parents’ house. While 36% were forced to sleep apart while under their parents’ roof, despite the fact that in some cases the couples had been living together for years.

I’ve realized a subversive plot on the part of Hollywood. Though we are fed cookie-cutter versions of romance and unrealistic visions of love, if you take a look at the last lines of the best romance films, they are always so…mundane. Is this the “happily ever after” we were promised? Not even an “I love you” as the screen fades to black?
We picked 12 of our favorite love films and found their last lines…see if you can pair the movie with the dialogue. More
