D: DEBATE: ARE WE ONE OR TWO?

A2Z-BADGE-0002015-LifeisGood-230_zps660c38a0It’s April! Time for the A to Z Blog Challenge. Each day through April (except Sundays) we’re writing a blog post to the Letter of the Day. The 1st is ‘A’, the 2nd is ‘B’ … and so on until we get to ‘Z’.

Some of the participating blogs have themes – and some don’t. Naturally, Chrys N. Jay’s theme is Love and Romance. Stop back by tomorrow to see what we added. Or, better yet, follow us and the post will go directly to your inbox. And don’t worry, after April is over Chrys N. Jay goes back to the once a week schedule, so your inbox won’t explode.

We’re on Facebook too! https://www.facebook.com/pages/Chrys-N-Jay-romance-author/1634091186816645?ref=aymt_homepage_panel

D: DEBATE: ARE WE ONE OR TWO?

love makes two hearts oneOnly in love are unity and duality not in conflict. ~Rabindranath Tagore

Are we one or are we two? The best marriages seem to contain qualities of each. As a couple, those that present a strong unified front to the world often have a strength that can’t be torn down. Unity is a good thing, spreading its roots throughout the relationship, creating a strong bond.

Yet, in contrast, some of the best marriages I’ve seen, many well over the 30 year mark and a few nearing the 50 year mark also have elements of duality. Each of the two in the couple remain individuals with their own dreams, desires, opinions and interests.

What do you think? Can love have both unity and duality?

And here’s just a little bonus for the day. I almost went with ‘dream’ for D, but didn’t.

You know you’re in love when you don’t want to fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams. ~Dr. Seuss

  1. I guess it depends on the couple. My husband and I have been married almost 24 years and while we are two individuals with our own personalities and passions, we are very in synch and will finish each other’s thoughts and say what the other is thinking.

  2. I think a partner who loses individuality will generally be unhappy. My husband and I have been married for 37 years. We are two individuals who fit well together.
