I saw this question in another site so I decided to ask it here clueless on these things.
"And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him. And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof. And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him. And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh. And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed."--Genesis 2:18-25.
I don't know about you, but that definitely sounds like "soulmate" to me. The fact that God specifically created a specific man for woman and a woman for a man is awesome....
Yes it is awesome but now the question is do people really meet that man or woman their soulmate and marry. Is every spouse considered soulmates. Is there really one person out their for an individual??
Is every spouse considered soulmates?
That is a question that only God and the individual can answer for sure, but from my perspective as a counselor, I would say "no". There are many people that would agree with this. A soulmate (for the Christian) is the one you are supposed to be connected with; this can include more than one marriage (i.e. the spouse dies or after infidelity of a spouse).
I also think it depends on one's perspective of "their purpose" or season....Some may believe that God has called them to minister in marriage to one person an feel completely connected to them; and the same way way in remarriage (after a loved one dies or after infidelity of a spouse).
Is there really one person out their for an individual??
I believe this as well....just as there are some who are never called to be married. It is about knowing your Divine purpose and what you are called to do with your life by the Lord.
But i thought you can only have one soulmate?
or are you just calling the marriage partner the soulmate
The prayer and hope is that our soulmate is marriage partner....but no, they are not always. When people jump ahead of God and not wait on Him to lead, they unfortunately may marry the wrong one.
Do you suppose after a man meets a woman for one week he can love her??
Can someone really fall in love so fast and if he confesses he do what should the woman do??
Well about the culture that you meet your husband on the day of your marriage.
And fifteen years after LOVE is keepin them together.
I believe it is possible.
one week?? what culture can that be arranged marriage
One week of following in Love , I mean. who knows
Well for the marriage that can happen, if the family has money. I had a co-worker , she didnt meet her husband on her wedding day.How long th parents were in the arrangment, dont know.
No... i do not believe after a week one can love someone.. this might be infatuation, but not love.
This is the mistake that many people make, especially the young, they mistake attraction for love. Then at the onset of simple misunderstanding they split.
True love can withstand a great tornado .... though misunderstanding may exist, yet the couple will never cease to love each other, and they wont SPLIT..
Take for example, my mom and dad, they have been married for over 33 years, and boy up to a day like today these two are inseparable. My mom will visit the US, for six months, but she always cut her vacation time short just to go home to her husband. My dad will come up with all sorts of painful excuses so that she would return to him lol..
Most times i would just laugh at them. This i call true love. this is the type of relationship i want to exist between me and my husband as well. I think that God blessed them and placed them together, so yes i think they are soul-mates.
yes i agree
nice when one finds their soulmate!!
My husband and I fell in love within days of meeting and married two months later.
I don't regret it at all nor will I cheapen it and deceive my self by thinking of it as infatuation and not love. We have been married almost 6 years (June 20th.) now and our marriage is literally even better now than it was at the beginning. :0)
While I do know first hand that it is possible I do agree with you that people should not rush in the way we did, because it does often go sour..
Though I think that is largely, because Hollywood has convinced generations of young women that marriage is supposed to be a 24/7 romance, when the truth is that love and marriage is not just a romantic fairy tale, it's dirty diapers, bills, dance recitals, times when you have everything, and times when you have nothing but each other and your faith...
