Love can be wonderful, frustrating, heart-breaking and bewildering. It's a complex emotion that has inspired many an artist. But is our attitude towards love a conditioned response determined by the way we've been brought up? On Love after Love Elaine C Smith talks to Aaliyah. Following in her parent's footsteps, and in keeping with tradition, Aaliyah agreed to an arranged marriage. However her marriage was abusive and it failed. Aaliyah tells Elaine how she moved on from that and how she couldn't be happier now that she has found true love with her same sex partner.
