How did you make it work? He is vegan and you love pork. Over the 12 years of being married to a vegan, I became semi vegan who consumes more veggies than meaat. Some couples who are opposites in religion, have one converted after 6 months or years. My friend’s hubby is an Ironman and she loves to only take a walk and sleep most of the times. Now the hubby became a homebody like her, due to old age perhaps.
Couples doing the same types of activities last longer and live happier lives. Spending more time with each other and also allowing each individual unique qualities help in making marriage last a little longer.
Those who have stayed together despite not spending time in daily exercise type of activities or eating the same type of foods do so for other reasons like raising children, in same faith and deep love and respect of each other. But because they love each other, one partner also converted to the same food and healthy habits and even faith.
As my elders would advice me, being in the same faith is like a string that will always bring you back together for you both believe in the same thing and so a solid base of relationship will live for a lifetime.
Love can move mountains and help transform someone to be vegan, be an athlete, love for ballroom dancing and do all things that their partner is passionate about.
What do you think of opposites? Will it last even when their food types and sports are the opposites? What did you do? Please email email@example.com .
We’re taught to think in terms of linear time. Our whole lives are guided by the concept that one event precedes another and that consequences come from causes. We tell our life stories from the beginning and only in middle age do we look back connecting events in new ways to retell our story. Even this perspective, binds us to linear time. And yet, we all have experienced time’s peculiarities which open us to wonder. Why is it I can lose time in a favorite activity and that last hour at work seems like a month?
Einstein said, “…the separation between past, present, and future is only an illusion, although a convincing one.” Here we see Einstein speaking like a mystic and why should that surprise us? I’m reading Dr. Joe Dispenza’s book, Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself (How to Lose Your Mind and Create a New One). Dispenza takes on the notion of linear time by examining an experiment done in 2000 by an Israeli doctor. Watch for the zinger!
Leonard Leibovici, MD conducted a double-blind, randomized trial of 3393 hospitalized patients all suffering with a sepsis infection. Leibovici was interested in whether prayer could affect patient outcome. The patients were divided with half being prayed for and half not being prayed for. Dr. Leibovici collected data on the length of fever, length of stay in the hospital, and death as a result of infection. Turns out the prayed for patients had an earlier reduction in fever and shorter hospital stays. The death rates for both groups were not statistically different. The results may shock some, but science has been doing prayer studies for quite a while ( Healing Words-The Power of Prayer & The Practice of Medicine by Larry Dossey, MD). The truly mind- numbing thing about the study is that those praying in 2000 were praying for patients who were hospitalized in the period 1990 to 1996. The conclusion drawn here was that patients who were prayed for in 2000, actually got better in the 1990s.
So what is going on and how should it change our ideas about time? What if Einstein is right and time is just a persistent illusion, an artifice created by the brain? We’re used to thinking that prayer or focused attention might be able to affect our future. But what if I can do something today to affect my past? Can I pray for a better childhood? Can I heal a fractured relationship from decades ago? Can I send myself strength to get through a rough career change I’m making now? Can I? Can you?
