A sucker for anything romantic or Parisian, it’s been on my bucket list to ‘lock love’ on one of the two bridges in Paris. I haven’t done so yet, I can only assume I’ve yet to go there with the appropriate chap.

Paris Bridge Collapses From Weight of Love Locks
By: Veronique Hyland, nymag.com

Providing more fodder for the people leading the backlash against the “love locks” — padlocks engraved with a couple’s initials, sort of the Parisian version of carving your names into a tree — attached to Paris’s Pont des Arts, The Independent reports that the bridge has actually semi-collapsed due to the weight of the locks, which number over 700,000. Luckily, no one was injured, and the bridge is expected to reopen tomorrow. We have a feeling this won’t keep people from continuing to engage in the somewhat clichéd practice. Vive l’amour?
