Q: Do you believe that we all have a “soul mate”?
A: I do think that God has a plan for all of our lives. but we don’t know what that plan is. It’s left up to us, seeking God’s direction, to find the person we should marry. But the soul mate idea is that someone is going to make me happy forever—that doesn’t happen. This euphoria, in which we feel like we were born for each other, has a two year life span. We eventually come down off the high, recognize we are human and have to learn to love each other. I don’t think we should have a soul mate mentality but commit ourselves to learn to love the person to whom we are now married.
