Is it that I’m not a romantic; maybe that I haven’t been in love. Sure, I’ve liked boys in school, but no boyfriend. I will probably be boyfriend-less my whole life. It’s fine by me. Relationships are complicated. More complication is the absolute last thing my life needs!
I look at my parents, who have been married 36 years and my grandparents, 56. I can’t imagine being with one person with one person for 56 years! I would have gotten so sick of my significant other long ago.
In my humble opinion, the term “soul mate” has no meaning anymore. It’s thrown around willy-nilly. The teenagers who will break up over the new boy that transferred to their school are soul mates. I watch “Say Yes to the Dress.” It seems like every single bride has found her soul mate.
It would be interesting to see their divorce rate. Haven’t you heard that marriage is a give and take? Unless couples realize that, they haven’t found their soul mate and it doesn’t happen at the wedding. It takes time to realize.
