Meditation for Beginners
The True Goal of MarriageOur love is not only given to parents, siblings, and friends, but also shared with someone who may become one’s husband or wife. If we understand the true goal of marriage, we can build a healthier relationship, and in turn spread positive energy to those around us even beyond the marriage.Some may decide to marry based on physical appearances only. This decision seems shortsighted.
Since youth and beauty fade over time and burdens increase with age, a couple’s feelings will fade away too. Dissatisfaction will grow and conflicts may arise more frequently until they become irreconcilable family problems. On the other hand, if we enter into marriage hoping to find an intimate friend with whom we can build good deeds and together reach the goal of human rebirth, the expectations and results will be different. No matter how young or how old we are, each will grow, cherish, persuade, and encourage the other to do good deeds until the day we die. To this purpose, marriage is not based solely on whether we feel physical attraction for the person, but more importantly, whether this person has similar faith, views, and beliefs. It take a long time to learn about all of these qualities in another person.
