How do I love thee?

Valentine’s Day is Monday and I want to know: which is history’s most romantic gesture?  Not in the mood to celebrate?  I also want to know: which is history’s most romantic flop?  Cast your vote by leaving a note in the comments section below!

ROMANTIC

Shah Jahan builds the Taj Mahal to honor his wife Mumtaz Mahal

Edward VIII abdicates the British throne to marry Wallis Simpson

Joe DiMaggio sends roses three times a week to Marilyn Monroe's grave for 20 years after her death

 FLOP

 

Ben Affleck bought J-Lo a $105,000 gem-encrusted toilet seat, bedazzled with rubies, sapphires, and diamonds. (Sorry folks – I don’t have the real pic of the toilet seat…but you get the idea!)

Angelina Jolie & Billy Bob Thornton swapped vials of each other’s blood and wore them around their necks.

Their relationship was a roller-coaster—they married and divorced each other twice – but Richard Burton bought a 69.42-carat Harry Winston diamond for Elizabeth Taylor.

  1. I’m going with the Taj and toilet seat!! The Taj looks soooo beautiful and is something that will last forever and is admired by so many people. That toilet seat just looks redunk.

  2. I’m going with Edward VIII. It is easy to buy things for people. It is much more difficult to give things up.
