Shimazu title translation

I've not seen the film, so don't know the story. But is it perhaps implying that one form of love (eg, familial) should come before another form (eg, romantic). If so, we could go for "Love Before Love", which is what I chose to write in my Shimazu filmography.

  Yasujiro Shimazu's "Ai yori ai e" doesn't seem to have an established English 
translation. I'm guessing it means something like "Being in love is better 
than love". Any suggestions as to what exactly this means (might it be some 
sort of folk aphorism?)
