A lot of those forms of "love" are problematic for society. Biologically we have a natural aversion to mating with our nearest kin, and typically it makes damned good sense. Student/teacher or employee/employer... ehhh.. they're cultural more so, but because they pose professional problems. People always want what is naughty or forbidden, and that I can agree with. In a lot of cases, once one act becomes dull or accepted, they pursue other means because they're chasing the high... As for forbidden or troublesome romance, I don't see many people that are going to argue about it, but there's a whole variety of romances that allow for that "star crossed lovers" play to come out.



I don't believe it's intrinsic, imo it's highly dependent on social norms of that time period as well. Intermarriage was common amongst royalty (in the past).
