We are all born with the capacity to love, the capacity to procreate and the capacity to be IN love.   Life would be so much simpler and happier for everyone if we could teach our children that true inner happiness stems from  following the path of being IN love and choosing whether we want to procreate or just love.

With whom you can fall IN love is never a choice.. it is inborn...  

With whom you choose to share love is always a choice...   The English language needs to add another word for the capacity to be IN love...  not sure what it should be.

Marriage can exist with love, without love and with being IN love.  That is where the confusion is regarding who should be able to marry and who shouldn't.   Personally I don't think anyone should marry unless they are IN love..   Now, there's a radical idea...    I think our entire marriage culture would be flipped on its ear if we adopted that idea.

My reading of the standard marriage vows tells me they were meant for people who are IN love..

Just my thoughts for today..   :-)
