I love this article!! Popular media is still holding on to some weird archaic version of romance which isn't relevant in real life today. And it's extra disturbing when it happens in children's shows, because that's not what the next generation should be learning! I'm glad Disney is moving away from romanticizing toxic relationships and bringing in more realistic couples (like in frozen).
