Do Unlike Poles Attract And Stay That Way In Relationships And Marriage – Exploring Love In The New Age.
Ying-Yang as the Chinese say.
Humans tend to look for people who can give them what they are lacking.
Why else would someone go searching for what they already have most will argue.
It’s also the complimentary principle.
I give you what you lack and you give me what I lack.
If say person A has lot’s of patience, he will seek person B without patience so he can share. If person B lacks joy, they will go looking for a person full of joy to fill them etc.
That is before marriage.
Lock and Key!
After marriage though, unlike poles start to repel.
See, for any long term venture, you need common ground or glue to keep things going!
Because if you lack the glue to go in the same direction, you both start drifting apart.
I guess this is where the famous Bible scripture of two becoming one comes in.
This is why a man leaves his father and mother and bonds with his wife, and they become one flesh.
Could this phenomenon of people looking for those who are opposite to them also explain the increasing the levels of divorce, separation, mariticide and uxoricide?
If you don’t have enough similarities to be one, then you are headed for chaos especially if you have totally different outlooks on life.
I mean after the differences are filled, there will be nothing left anymore.
Indeed this is where the Biblical question comes in:
Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness?
15 What harmony is there between Christ and Belial? Or what does a believer have in common with an unbeliever?
16 What agreement is there between the temple of God and idols? For we are the temple of the living God. As God has said:
“I will live with them
and walk among them,
and I will be their God,
and they will be my people.”
“Come out from them
and be separate,
says the Lord.
Touch no unclean thing,
and I will receive you.”
“I will be a Father to you,
and you will be my sons and daughters,
says the Lord Almighty.”
2 Corinthians 6:14-18
