Pope Francis gives love advice on Valentine's Day

  • Pope Francis, who has committed himself to lifelong celibacy, gave his advice on how to maintain a successful marriage before thousands of engaged couples. 

    The event held in Vatican City may reflect to the pontiff's desire of being closer to the lives of ordinary people considering that his answers were shared with about 25k people from all around the world. 

    Three couples asked him direct questions and the first one explained how they decided on getting married. They asked Francis to give them advice on how to lead their married lives. 

    "Dear engaged people, you are getting ready to grow together, to built a home, to live together for good. Do not just base it on those feelings that come and go, but on the rock of true love that comes from God," he said.
