I haven't seen in it modern western cultures, since the baby boomer generation.

There are multiple factors, but I think the worse two - entitlement and ignorance. So many people have an idea that there settling or deserve a perfect partner. No one is perfect. If we truly evaluate our dating standards versus what have to offer a partner, that will grant us humility. I think lacking in accountability or unawareness is the major killer of romance in modern times. People in the boomer generation understood duty, responsibility, respect, and truth. Now, however, most people are looking for others to blame for why the fail, or lie, or cheat. Truth is no longer valued objectively, the mantra is "do what makes you happy, and live your own truth." Regardless of whether it hurts anyone else, or will eventually hurt yourself.

Good point. People have become more self-centered. When conflicts arise, they blame each other rather than work together to resolve the issues. No one is entitled to love and respect if they don't invest in time and effort to meet someone halfway.

Honestly no I don’t, I am married and happy but I find this type of love portrayal is unrealistic. Long lasting relationships are partnerships, not always lovey-dovey and romantic.

That's true. Relationships are partnerships and there are ups and downs. I think chemistry and affection, like that portrayed between Carl and Ellie (even though might not be as exaggerated), are important to keep relationships going.

Yes that’s true. Affection is needed so your partner always feels loved.

Yes, I experienced it first hand. Including holding her hand as she died.

I know a few couples in my extended family who are like that. I mean they do have arguments but they stand up for each other always.
