Love and Marriage

If we place trust in our companion to always render happiness, as we wish to do for them, then each time we are hurt, which will happen, is an offense of trust, and suffering is deep.  But if we trust our companion to be a catalyst for awakening, enlightenment, and liberation, suffering caused by the relationship instead empowers us to look deeper in search of the truth, and the bond between us is strengthened. This is love.
