“ Success in marriage is very difficult if partners expect too much from their spouses. When each demands fulfillment from the other & that demand is not met, they become enemies. A lasting and fulfilling marriage is in most cases impossible without spirituality ”
Surrendering to the demands of the senses does not satisfy them, but rather creates insatiable desires for further sense experiences.
You can measure the happiness of a marriage by the number of scars that each partner carries on their tongues, earned from years of biting back angry words.
Sometimes I wonder if men and women really suit each other. Perhaps they should live next door and just visit now and then.
Now you're calling your success with somebody as love, that's a mistake. You have a success story with somebody - that is, you have created pleasantness in the atmosphere between you and the other person. You're calling that love; no that is actually success because that needs lots of management.
