Till death do us apart

So I was wondering if this year will be like others and I'll be wearing black on St. Valentine's day as a way to protest for the outrageous consumerism that pervades our time (and my everlasting status as a singleton too), when I ran across this picture:

Eternal embrace

This couple was buried about 5 to 6 thousand years ago in Mantova, Italy during the neolithic period.

Suddenly, death is no longer the ultimate boundary.

Gracias :)

Fotos como ésta le hacen a uno sentirse más tranquilo ante temas tan inescapables y contundentes como la muerte.
