Notre Dame de Paris and the Love Locks

When you cross the river behind the Notre Dame on the Pont Marie, you will see a strange sight. The chain link fence on the bridge is covered with locks (see the photo below).

Martha tells me that all the fences on the bridges look the same: people put locks on the fence vowing eternal commitment to their current love objects. All the spaces are full. And more people want to put a lock on a fence symbolizing their connection.
