Love & Marriage
True love and marriage is the process of two halves of one soul reuniting again for all eternity. This is why everyone is looking for it.
I want him to be handsome. I want her to be pretty. I am looking for wit. I am looking for kindness. Should I perform a credit check? My wedding will be on the beach. My marriage is so boring… When it comes to the body of love and marriage, we know exactly what we want. But what about the soul of love and marriage, do I know what I want? What type of spiritual connection am I looking for? How do I put the soul into “soul-mate”? What is the inner meaning of marriage? And what happens once I am married? Is love only at first sight or does it continue? What happens when I have the marital without the bliss?
