Is all fair in love in and war?
No, of course not! In war, there are rules to be followed, such as you don’t kill noncombatants. That’s not fair. There must be some similar rules in love, though I can’t think of any at thew moment. Oh, for example, you don’t get mad at someone and cut up their clothes or pout bleach all over them. This I learned from watching court TV shows. That’s not fair. You can’t destroy other people’s property. The same goes for slashing tires and pouring sugar in gas tanks. War has other rules, which I don’t remember and which are violated all the time but that doesn’t mean that all is fair. You get caught at them, you’re going before the war tribunals court in the Hague and rightfully so. War atrocities cannot be tolerated. Love problems are rarely so serious but sometimes escalate into domestic violence and that isn’t fair either. So there is no way that all’s fair is love and war. Whoever came up with that statement was sorely out of line.
