Love magick has always played an important part in witchcraft, with love spells being some of the oldest spells known to humankind. Love spells have a varied and sometimes sordid history in folk magick, ranging from different forms of divination to determine the identity and fidelity of your lover to dominating the will of the one you desire and manipulating them into coming to you and loving you. There are myriad folk spells to keep a lover faithful, to attract a lover to you, to renew passion and protect the marriage bed, many of which are practiced today.
