So much for fastening padlocks to Parisian bridges and then throwing the keys into the River Seine as a sign of endless love

So much for fastening padlocks to Parisian bridges and then throwing the keys into the River Seine as a sign of endless love. “Hey, lovers, go attach your padlocks elsewhere!” say officials in Paris. Once seen as a tourist draw, the tradition is now frowned upon — which begs the question: Hundreds of thousands of padlocks later, why only now stop people from expressing their deepest love? Well, there is only so much extra weight a bridge can take, and to make matters worse, Parisians don’t like the practice, claiming it blocks their view of the beautiful Seine, so enamored couples will have to find new ways to say, “I will forever love you.”
