Has Romantic Love Become an Idol?

Is it possible to make an idol—or even a whole religion—out of romantic love? Consider the lines from these popular songs:

Gonna build my whole world around you. … You're all that matters.
~~ The Temptations, "You're My Everything."
If we believe in each other [there's] nothing we can't do.
~~ Celine Dion, "Love Can Move Mountains"
You're my religion, you're my church.
You're my holy grail at the end of my search.
~~ Sting, "Sacred Love"
She tells me, "Worship in the bedroom."
The only heaven I'll be sent is when I'm alone with you.
~~Hozier, "Take Me to Church"
