Happy valentine's day, people! In celebration, let's take a look at a tale as old as time - Eros and Psyche! This myth has been adapted in a million different ways, and the structure recurs in folklore all over the world - boy meets girl, boy loses girl, girl has to undergo X taxing trials to earn the hand of boy, girl gets boy. Oftentimes, the boy also transforms from a hideous or animalistic form into a beautiful one when the girl completes her tasks. This could be considered a way of balancing or equalizing the marriage - it's not one-sided, because after the boy pursues and obtains the girl, the girl in turn pursues and obtains the boy.
