Can being in love cure depression?

I have a relative who has been suffering from depression on and off for a while. He tried anti-depressants and said they didn't work and he hated being on them, so he quit. He mainly self medicates with alcohol and illegal prescription drugs. Recently he met someone he's head over heels for. I've never seen him like this. It's like he's a new person--engaged, interested in life, working hard, working out and eating healthier, stopped doing drugs (not alcohol though), etc. He says he's never been happier in his life. So, DL, what do you think, can being in love cure depression in some people? What happens if the relationship doesn't work out? Will he be in a worse place?
