Are you interested in the story once the hero and heroine have declared their undying love for one another? Many romance novel readers would say no. As would Lord Byron; check out what he wrote in his poem Don Juan:
Romances paint at full length people's wooings,
But only give a bust of marriages:
For no one cares for matrimonial cooings.
There's nothing wrong in a connubial kiss.
Think you, if Laura had been Petrarch's wife,
He would have written sonnets all his life?
—Don Juan (1818-24), Canto III, Stanza 8.
This discussion might circle back around to the Epilogues: Yea or Nay? argument as well. But beyond that question, why is it that we love to see the chase of love so much? The wooing, rather than the cooing?
