"Ea a scris despre iubitul ei."
Translation:She wrote about her boyfriend.
Can "iubitul ei" mean "her lover"; or is there another expression for that?
I wasn't thinking about an illicit affair. I was thinking that the boyfriend and girlfriend relationship can be quite casual whereas lovers have a relationship that is more intense.
Well, we use the terms prietenul meu and prietena mea (which also literally translate as my boyfriend/girlfriend) and iubit(ă) indeed seems more intense, just like in English.
