How to keep love alive?

Nothing should be higher than love

I like the movie "The Odyssey" and its hero Odysseus. In Konchalovsky’s film, there is an olive tree, near which Odysseus and his future wife met each other and conceived their child; around this tree their house was built and Odysseus’ wife was waiting for him there. While the tree was bearing fruits, she maintained hope of his return.

Each family has such a tree. We should care for it and not allow quarrels to undermine its roots. The awareness of it helps to make it through any difficulties.

Supporting each other is one of the "columns" that hold up our love. Such support should cover all we do. This is, for example, when you see your spouse’s mistake but don’t tell him off because you know he will not apprehend it now and so you wait for a more convenient moment, you smooth over the situation and change the topic. If needed you can wait a year or two or however long is takes. You don’t bring it up all the time and say, "See, I told you!"

Of course, I can talk only from a man’s prospective. Why does a man appreciate his family? When a man says that the family is his rare, it doesn’t mean he undervalues it. Though a man’s role in the modern society has changed, he remains the head of the family, simply because he is a man. Male features, as well as female’s, are sacred things. A man acts as the main bearer of such a quality as strength. In this sense, family is something that gives him strength. If he knows that he is loved, that he will be accepted no matter what even if he made a mistake (say, by having too much drink), the family can support and heal him. Later on, he will realize his mistakes and make the necessary changes.

The same goes for a woman. Her strength lays is in her submission to a man, that’s where she finds her happiness. I think, any woman, even a business-lady, wants it deep inside. She would like to have a man to whom she could give herself fully, to the very last drop. She would like to have such a person as the light of her life. There is no humiliation in this, no inequality. God created human beings this way. Therefore, let us understand what our happiness and strength is about. Everything is going to be fine if you realize such ideas. Pray for each other and there will be nothing to fear!
