The Lovers: A Troubled Look

In Susan Hansson's book, The Hanson-Roberts Tarot Companion, she sees in the discomfort of the young man as an expression of the dynamic of choice which also exists in the card. From page 27:
The young man's face, however, shows concern. New troubles arise when making what to most people is the first major independent choice: selecting a mate.
I certainly identify with this interpretation, as well as with "the joy that... feels like sadness" which I described above.
