That’ll teach you to fall in love!

Sorry every girl on Tumblr who dreamed of honeymooning in Paris with her husband and locking it up, the Paris lovers’ locks are going to be dismantled.

The locks that are clamped onto Paris’ Pont des Arts bridge seemingly won’t last forever, but hopefully your love will. The city council plans to dismantle the locks on Monday. The padlocks, which are signed and locked by lovers on the metal grills on the side of the bridge, are considered an eyesore on Paris’ picturesque bridge that overlooks the Eiffel Tower. And they’re dangerous, a chunk of the fencing fell off under their weight.

It’s a shame, unless you’re bitter like me. Chuck those things in the river and watch ’em sink.
