It’s the love month, and one can already feel all the love vibes wafting through the air as couples enjoy the blessing of love.


Love is a beautiful blessing. Without love the world would not be in existence. I strongly believe love holds the world together and without it, everything we know would come off the seams.


I wrote an article about Women Who Died For Love In History, Literature And Folklore. These courageous and brave women through the ages gave up their lives for the sake of love. For some it was love for family, men, husbands, lovers, work, beliefs, faith etc.


I’m following that article up with a post on Men who died for love. Contrary to popular media portrayal, men love deeply and many men have died for love too. Some of these men have laid down their lives for their faith, friends, their wives, lovers, women, work, beliefs etc. 


Of course I will start with the Greatest Man of All. The Man who laid down his life on an accursed cross for me, you and the whole world. The Man Jesus Christ who once said:


“No one has greater love than this, that someone would lay down his life for his friends.”

John 15:13

Love! A verb, a noun, an emotion, a drug etc. It has been described in various ways. Can you die for love? Would you want someone who loves you to die for you? And is it better to die for love than to live for love is the question that first rang through my mind when I came across a friend’s Face Book status update that read something like?

Valentine died for love,

Romeo also died for love,

Jack in Titanic died for love,

Where are the women?

After my rather innocent initial question to myself, my feminine side rose up with fury. Yes, friends! My feline, cat or whatever other animal description can be used side of me reared its stubborn head.


I angrily, muttered to myself, “I’m really tired of these one-sided narratives. It’s high time we started telling two sides of the story.” I love a challenge, therefore I decided to take on the challenge and went looking for those women who have died for love in History.


However, as I was searching, another question kept nagging my mind (Yes! I suffer from questioning things syndrome). When love is mentioned in this caption, is the author speaking of romantic love or the Biblical 1 Corinthians 13 kind of love?









Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; 5 does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; 6 does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; 7 bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 8 Love never fails. 

1 Corinthians 13:4-8

My quest to disprove the notion that women don’t die for love led me to research. And my search came up with these amazing, brave, bold and courageous women who went through great ordeals in the name of love. I hope each of their stories inspires us to love those in our lives better.
