    Falling in love or fallen in love?

    I saw someone had written
    "He is falling in love with a car"
    It should be "he has fallen in love with a car"..Shouldn't it?

    It should be "he has fallen in love with a car" The action is complete...Shouldn't it? It depends when the action occurs, as noted,
