Who was Saint Valentine, and why is he associated with this rite?

There are three different saints in the Catholic church including Valentine/Valentinus. According to a legend, St. Valentine served during third century. During that time, Emperor Claudius II said that single men were better soldiers as compared to those with wives and therefore he decided that marriage should be banned.
