Your Valentine's Day IQ: Answer 2

Who was St. Valentine?

Answer B is correct.

Who would have guessed? St. Valentine was a Roman bishop who lost his head (literally!) over challenging the bizarre social laws of a mad emperor named Claudius II. In Claudius’ eyes, married men made lousy soldiers because they were homesick for their wives and children. Claudius, therefore, outlawed marriage for young men—his crop of potential soldiers. Realizing the injustice of the law, Bishop Valentine defied Claudius and married young lovers in secret. Valentine’s actions were soon discovered, though, and he was sentenced to death. After a short stay in prison, Valentine was beheaded.
