Love and family
23 September 2021, Seytoo
Knowing how to get along with others is key. We talk about the “art of loving”, which is essentially an art of getting along.
But who are we to marry? How to define the ideal partner for each? It is sometimes believed that successful couples “got lucky”, or stumbled upon “the right number”. These are myths, illusions. The person who is successful as a couple is not always a romantic person. After passion must come compassion, in the etymological sense of knowing how to suffer and endure together. It takes long years of living together to make a real couple: love at first sight is no guarantee of marital success.
Those who are successful in their married life are those who have always known how to practice the art of living with others, for others. They have a sense of others, “empathy”, and ability to feel and understand the hearts of others, to establish reciprocal bonds. They are also, in general, people who accept to take responsibility. If someone fails to develop this faculty of empathy, they fabricate a false definition of love. Love then it becomes a matter of charm, of seduction, where one seeks to attract the attention of others to oneself.
“Love is the unique opportunity to mature, to take shape, to become a world yourself, for the love of your loved one. It is a high standard, an unlimited ambition, which makes someone who loves a chosen one.”
Knowing how to get along with others is key. We talk about the “art of loving”, which is essentially an art of getting along. The art of loving is based on the intelligence of the heart or even on wisdom. The ideal would be to feel with our brain and to think with our heart. “Love is the unique opportunity to mature, to take shape, to become a world yourself, for the love of your loved one. It is a high standard, an unlimited ambition, which makes someone who loves a chosen one. '”
Every man should know from a little boy that there is nothing more wonderful than being able to love and cherish one woman. This firm certainty should remain engraved in his heart and never leave it, even if he has to study for a long time and combine his marital ideal with his career. Likewise for a woman.
Successful couples say they have always loved each other, and almost always “known” each other, from an acquaintance prior to the time of their meeting. They therefore re-read their entire destiny from the moment of their birth in the light of this central event of their marriage. This intimate union of conjugal love and knowledge is sometimes given the Greek name of Sophia, wisdom. Conjugal wisdom is therefore the key to succeeding as a couple in marriages.
