Have you ever thought about how the meaning of "couple" evolved in time?
Our grandparents could barely choose their partner, they were supposed to follow strict rules, endure their marriage no matter what.
Yet our parents went through Woodstock, spread the free love cult and got to know the pill. These were the days of the sexual revolution.
Young people now meet on Facebook, couples share their emotions on twitter and e-mails, can see each other on Skype. How did technology change the way we interact with our partner? How did "love" occur at the time our grandparents were adolescents?
As a school assignment we decided to explore the world of relationships spread through the generations. We gathered interviews, data and photos to build this book, in hope to learn something from the past and enjoy our present and future.
