To all married couples out there, let me share with you these lines from the poem of Kahlil Gibran about Marriage. I think it speak about being in an intimate relationship with our partners in marriage and also giving each other space for growth. Let me know what you think about this: "Love one another but make not a bond of love Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls. Fill each others cup but drink not from one cup Give one another your bread but eat not from the same loaf... Give your heart but not into each other's keeping for only the hands of life can contain your hearts. And stand together, yet not too near together For the pillars of the temple stand apart, And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other's shadows."
