My husband and I were talking about a young couple we know, concerned they might break up.
“You think they might? Don’t you think they love each other? Really love each other?”
“Yeah, I do. I think they do love each other but love is not enough.”
“P, we loved each other. You couldn’t find two kids more in love than we were and it didn’t do any good. Love was not enough. You’ve got to have some maturity. People aren’t that smart when they’re young, they won’t listen to anyone and they’ve no idea what they are throwing away.”
“No one told us we were throwing something away.”
“Yeah they did. My mom told me, I didn’t listen.”
“Yeah, P, love alone is not going to do it. You’ve got to have more than just love…”
So here’s the thing:
While this is a heads up for young couples who actually love each other, it makes me think of people in their 30’s, their 40’s, 50’s and beyond who are still thinking they are not going to have to weather some crap if they want to have someone in their life. I’d also say that this is why Saturn (commitment, maturity) is exalted in Libra (relationship).
What would you say?
