Why do fools fall in love? And how do they ever manage to stay that way? The Angelenos in this year’s Couples Issue don’t just have great romances — they also demonstrate love’s endurance in the face of difficult circumstances, and even tragedy. A living space sans kitchen or shower. A husband who insists on wearing women’s clothing. The death of a child.

St. Paul was wrong; love often fails. But not for these couples. Here they are — still together. Still crazy in love. Fools, indeed, but in the best possible way.
