Men and women are too fickle, selfish and quite honestly stupid; even if they believe they’re not, and always tend to think more highly of themselves than they ought! That old enemy within pride and ego takes them for a ride down that slippery slope to despair!
They were given the greatest and only absolute perfect example to emulate or try and model themselves after; in order to become not only children of God Almighty but saints in the process! But, they give into the easy and lazy way out, or allow tantalizing gimmickry and temptations to subdue their emotions, minds and hearts for the quick gratification, blinding them to the plain simple truth!
And look at the sick culture men have designed with the help of the father of all lies; a cyber-artificial world of instant gratification, even self-worship, distraction and yes deception! If this isn’t stupid then I’m all ears to hear what anybody can prove to me actually is more foolish and asinine!
The one adage that immediately comes to my mind is, “they are suckers for punishment!”
Mark 8:18 Amplified Bible “THOUGH YOU HAVE EYES, DO YOU NOT SEE? AND THOUGH YOU HAVE EARS, DO YOU NOT HEAR and LISTEN [to what I have said]? And do you not remember,”
“If God were our one and only desire we would not be so easily upset when our opinions do not find outside acceptance.” ― Thomas à Kempis, The Imitation of Christ.
“Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.” Matthew 22:37

I can’t help but bring to mind, those words which St Margaret Mary Alocoque heard from Jesus, when He showed her His Sorrowful Sacred Heart.“Behold this heart which has so loved men, but is little loved in return” They cannot but help stir up love in those hearts which love Him, – a love which is full of zeal and generosity and which counteracts and lifts up the soul to new heights.
The other event which always comes to mind is when the king of France was told to consecrate France to Our Lord’s Sacred Heart. When he did not obey, exactly 100 years later, the king at the time, was killed and the French Revolution occurred, with much persecution of the Catholic church and civilians.
Our Lady at Fatima, told the world to consecrate Russia to her Immaculate heart to counteract the errors of Communism. It has…

Hi Sanjeet! Sorry I’m way behind the curve on catching up with things on this platform or even getting online been very busy!
Good question you bring up! I feel it’s a sad prospect for the youngest among us to want to build a lasting lifelong relationship and to me that is the only one that is worth bothering with as in the old fashioned way of meeting that one special person that is feeling as in love with you as you are with her and then wanting to make that lifelong commitment to always stay together even if things take a turn for the worst that commitment will only grow stronger! But the odds are stacked against such a thing happening or being able to survive this mixed up very self-focused and narcissistic secular lifestyle most people are pursuing!
But I never give up hope as I think it is possible and does happen on rare occasions as I have even met a few couples that are fairly young and they seem to have it! I hope they do and it can last as long as they live on earth! I hate the idea of multiple marriages and divorces; so that to me is a huge problem in this modern world where it happens all of the time and children are being ruined by all of this breakdown too!
I think perhaps people with strong faith in God that practice it and attend Church could very likely meet another who is like that and in time get to know each-other as good friends and eventually a love can spark and grow with a lasting relationship even for older persons who are windowed or never married before!
It’s very difficult today to find it but it’s not impossible either, I have hope for it to be alive in the world for some good people!
What about your view on this that would be good to hear!

Thank you for your opinions brother. I am very young to be having clear cut views on long lasting relationships but I am very glad to tell you that even I have seen some couples in my friend circle who have been long together and continue to do so.
I have a wonderful girlfriend and as you said life takes turns but the bond only increases. Sometimes it gets tough with so much going around and we fight a lot. But we both know at the end of the day that without fixing our problems we can never grow and that we love each other so that should be enough. We fix problems and stay together with the blessings of God.
God bless you brother. 🙏

Hi Sanjeet! Well put here as you explain relationships y your own true love example! When two are in love but as well committed to each other and their love relationship or bonding together then they are on a strong foundation as long as they are making sure to do this with God in mind not only making a commitment to each other but to their God Almighty who gives us all these great opportunities to exist and love each other!
They say meeting challenges and facing hardships or struggled builds character which it assuredly does but when a couple are facing these things in life together in a most loving partnership, it’s then that the love and its bond like character grows stronger, as this love can only deepen having so much in common and realizing that they truly have each other to depend upon! This kind of love to me is so sweet and magnificent and those that attain it my heart goes out to them and I really am happy for them; because I never found it and perhaps ran from it when I was fresh out of college with my girlfriend.
But as my dad later told me it wasn’t meant to be, and my mother added that marriage is not for everyone. So I agree with them both because I also know that the best thing any of us can do is seek our Father in heaven and His will for us in all things, because in the end we should want to do His will. I see in this perspective that some are called to matrimonial vows and a shared life while others are not but hopefully will fulfill some other obligations that please God’s plans and purposes for humanity!
You said all of this so well when you say, how you both work to “fix your problems together” and in that process you “both grow in the love and understanding you have for each other;” that is a beautiful thing to be doing!
God bless you too brother; and may both of you have fulfillment in your loving relationship now and always. 🙏
