The Loves of the Gods

In Greco-Roman mythology, Venus (Aphrodite) had a long-standing love affair with Mars (Ares), despite her marriage with Vulcan (Hephaestus.

Venus had been forced to marry Vulcan, but she did not love him because of his deformity and general unsightliness.

Their sons include Eros, Phobos and Deimos.
