Tina Turner famously sang the question, “What’s love got to do with it?”
She even called love a “second-hand emotion,” based on the rather cynical principle that “a heart can be broken.”
I enjoyed the song when it came out over three decades ago and I will admit there have been a few moments in my life where I may have pondered the jaded sentiments of those lyrics. But that’s just not how I’m wired. Never have been. Which is why my inherent response to that question has always been a simple one:
What’s love got to do with it? Why, everything, of course!
