My husband and I have been married now for almost 5yrs and together for almost 8yrs. Other than the 11yr age gap, at first glance you would think that we're a total opposite. But as friends and family have come to know, we're actually the same. What I mean by that is we're on the same level on most things, almost all the time, that it's just sickening! We know what each other is thinking that we can't hide anything from each; he's the "receiver" and I'm the "sender" so most times he reads me better than I do him. One of our other "joke" is we've already known and done this as we were with each other before - in our past life. I'm not saying that we are a perfect couple (there is no such thing) because we've had our share of "bumps on the road," more like hills, actually! It's just that we have this strong connection with each other that we were able to overcome the problems and also due to the fact that we just cannot be without each other! So tell me have you found your soulmate? And if not I wish you luck in finding the one at least close to it:)

I'm sorry to hear that you spent all those years just for it it to end. I wish you all the best in finding "The One"! Just don't look too hard though, sometimes when you're not looking, he will come to you instead....

I can completely agree with that. I am in a very similar marriage. Same time together even marriage and dating. He is 10 years older. On a regular basis we say what the other is thinking. We are so very much on the same wave length. I think that he knows me very well a bit more than I know myself. I know him pretty well. I know what he will do and how he will react to most things. However lately I have been feeling like he is not really "seeing" me. But soulmate, yes I think that he is mine.

If you guys have an open communication have you ever told him how you're feeling, or at least jokingly? Maybe it's time to reconnect or even go for a weekend getaway???!!! :) One of our "bumps on the road" was sort of like that too, not "seeing/communicating" w/me. Just keep in mind that your soulmate will eventually turn back to you, as you're the one that's been there.... Good luck to you

Hello Grahamiv In my opinion: I don't believe in soulmates. That some people believed. I don't see any common relations on that basis. As I read about your history. You and your husband is not a soulmates but spouses that given the value of marriage. You and your husband has the desires to make a great relationship and understand each other in all things. You and your husband have fear of God, that is why you've tried to be a good husband and wife. Their is no connection about soulmates or any words that describes your relationship. As far as I know. The common goal of marriage is according to the commandments of God, the perfect way...
