Turner Ovid Banished from Rome

Love is a kind of warfare."
— Ovid (43 BC - 18 AD)

The titled responsion is referring to the warfare that mostly leaves emotional scars.

I am not saying that a relationship turned violent and ending in domestic abuse isn't included in the proving of a battle in a loving relationship, in fact, quite the opposite is true. When taken from the perspective of warfare, the willing adversary could be your partner in crime. What is really the crime is the butchering of Ovid for the sake of a cliché.
