Quite literally, which is the best relation that exists in this world? I will give you some options, but you are free to choose any relation which is outside the list. Some of the most famous relations in this world are - mother and child father and child husband and wife friends lovers Well you can choose any relation even those which I have not mentioned here. Please elaborate your choice. Thank you.

I would give an diplomatic answer for this one sagnik coz each relation has its pro and cons and what is more important is how one is involved in that particular relation and while the Husband -Wife relation mostly depends on the Trust factor which might go wrong any time and infact most of the divorce cases are coz of this reason. If you do not accept my diplomatic response then i would go for the Mother and Child relation---and i hope you dont need an explaination for this coz she undergoes a lot of pain to give birth to her kids and then she cares,loves,pampers and what not---they're like valuable treasure to her and she loves them to the extent that she wouldnt mind sacrificing anything for them.so i would go for this relation.great day.

Hi sunny, so in the end you are saying that a mother child relation is the best one, in your opinion. Right? That is what believe as well. If you ever want to look for unconditional love, you will find it in this relation. By the way, why SO SERIOUS? I had to read your response twice to realize that it was actually you. OMG! What happened to you?

Not really....I still think it was serious. Are you still trying to show us that other side of yours?

I think animal and human is the best. I think animals give of them self in a totally selfless, unselfish manner. They aren't upset if you are late getting home just happy you are. They don't make fun of you for any reason. They don't insist on you not putting garlic in the dish, they eat it any way you fix it. Etc., etc., etc..

This is a great answer, Celticeagle. I think that you are right that animals love us in a way that very few people get to experience in their relationships with other humans. Animals love us openly, unconditionally and with everything that they have, and we should try to be more like them in our relationships and the way that we love other people.

Absolutely. Both Celtic and PA, you are right and that kind of a thought never came to my mind. Why do we only think of relationships concerning humans? Human - animal relationship is one of the best relationship there is. Thank you Celtic, that was a quite different but perfectly correct response. Loved it.

U just can't differentiate.............. when one of them are going well it would seem best for u at that time And when its not going well it would seem hell for u........... And most importantly all of them are equally important for one's life.... And every relation is best on there tym...... Cheers

Well, I do not quite agree. If you have a strong relation with someone, no matter how rough that relation was, you will feel strongly for that person. That relation or connection is still there,all it needs is the proper direction.

Of course that varies for everyone but for me personally the most important relationship and the best one in my life is the relationship I have with my kids..In fact its really the only one I need...I mean sure my friends, family, husband etc are important to me but if I had to I could live without them..however thats not the case with my kids..I'd be lost without my babies

Yes, I'd agree with that... even though my "babies" are now independent young men living away from home.

Hi Raven, I think all parents feel that way. I am just growing up and am not planning to have a kid for the next 10 years or so, but it really feels awesome to read post of parents and to know about their love for their ward. Kids are the most precious possessions of the parents and you are not different. Thank you for the response.

i think mother and child is the best relation in the world a child is that one special gift which only mothers can give and they have a special bond with their children.....having a child is a mother;s dream and they are the most happy humans when they have one.a mother and a child share a special inner bond which no other relationships can have........when ever a child is hurt its the mother who gets the most worried.

well in all the relation mentioned i believe all have thier own benefits and best parts depending on the individual. but i would say a relation with the lord Jesus christ is the best becuase it will give you all of the others in peace and in joy. becuase i know that even lovers relationship end so fast, mother son fades some times as soon as a girl comes into the boys life and he loves her so much that you find him forgeting his mother, also applies to girls and father, and friends too so i keep saying a personal spiritual relationship with your creator will help keep the others. my opinion there can be others thanks.

Oh yes, of course. That is really a great response Etioewe. I never thought of that. To tell you the truth I am not very close to God and really do not pray that much to Him/Her. But, to many people spiritual relation is the best relation in this world. Many famous learned men of different times have said the same thing. It is just that I really do not think much about that relation. I am not saying that I do not believe in God, but I do not have much faith in Him/Her either. Well, I am sure there will be more responses, and thank you for your opinion. It was very good and I enjoyed it.

Well each relation has its own importance and own value, we cannot choose one and leave others. Like every man needs partents to bring him up and get settle in life, not only this but much more reason for a parent and child relation ship this is just an example. Then when the man grows up, he / she also needs wife / husband with whom he/she shares a different level of relationship, then comes the age to become father/mother, wichi is also altogether a different experience and again a different level of relationship. Friends share again different level of relationship. So in my thoughts all the realations are equally important and has their own priorities at different situations of life and we play our role accordingly. For me all are equally important.

I agree babshish, every relation is equally important. But still there are certain relationships without which life is just not the same. All the relations you mentioned are different stages of life. But by relation I meant, a relation which is pure in its form and where the people concerned are very dependent on each other. not all relation are like that, is it?

I think that it depends on the people. Any relationship takes work and effort, and some people just do not want to make the effort or know how to put that type of commitment into a relationship, whether it is husband and wife or parent and child or just friendship. I think that the connection between two people can be very strong regardless of whether or not they share blood (like parents and children) or have a legally binding contract (such as marriage). I also do not think that just because you share blood or have a legally binding contract that you have a good relationship. I think that the same holds true for friendships versus acquaintanceships. I know that this really does not give a definitive answer, but it really does answer the question as best as I can. I do not think that the relationship itself is the determining factor in which type of relationship is best but rather the connection that the individuals have and the effort that they are willing to put forth to make the relationship good.

You're right one cannot conclude the best relation ship of those options given but blood relationships stand out(atleast in my opinion) when compared to the marriage or friendships coz the latter are quiet unstable and requires trust and understanding from either sides. What happend PA,is that you---havent left any comment at my box girl--and i dont find in any other boxes either

@ PA, relationship is actually that connection that you have tried to explain in here. It was a delight reading your post. Thank you for that response. @ Sunny, I think she was a little exhausted from the participating in your discussion. Maybe she will drop by sometime again soon.

I have a different view. In my opinion the relation of trust, faith and belief is the best relation. These are the foundation of any relation. Without these on relation can sustain. In today's world we have seen that almost all the relations mentioned by you become exemplary worst depending upon situation. Our relation with the Almighty is the best relation. Because one can fully surrender oneself to Him only and He always bestows His unconditional love and blessing on everyone equally.

Hi monoj, You defined best relation is very good way. Those are the very foundations of relation and you are right, those are the criteria to have a good relation. Thank you for the response.

hello sagnik, We can never tell which is the best among those relationships. It depends on each person ...and every relationship is important and become the best according to each individual standards. But,i knew one best of all the best...it's GOD-HUMAN relationship. Have a good day always

Hi Jai, I am not much of a God-person but I understand. It is that ultimate relation. The relation of humans with the Almighty. I really cannot support that but I respect people who believe in God. It is nice to have faith and believe in God. Have a nice day.

sagnik to me its a tossup between mother and child and husband and wife, they are both terrifically important to me. I loved my husband with all my heart, and my mom to , also I love my son so much,hes an adult but I still worry about him all the time. he has been so good to me, and I hate seeing him out of work now for so long. Ikeep praying God will help him get a job. So I cannot point out just one, for me it is two and has to be two.

Hi Hatley, your discussion made me think and I now believe you are right. Those are the two relationships upon which the society basically exists. If you take away any one of the two, society will collapse. It is alright that you chose two. Thank you for the response.

Each one can give you a hundred examples and support his answer and each time the answer might seem to be true. Because you have chosen a subjective term to ask your answer 'best'. Anything for that matter can be good, better or best. Husband-wife, brother-sister, father-daughter etc. all these can be best and worst in their own ways and not all can agree with the same answer each and every time. But I think the relationship of a mother is THE BEST in this world. A mother is the only person in one's life who is totally honest and unselfish in her approach towards her children. Even if the kid is troubling his mother, still a mother is ready to accept such troubles. After all, a woman cannot be a mother without taking any troubles, can she? They say, the delivery of a woman is her second birth. When a woman gives birth, she too is born again. And I would say, along with her are born the qualities of love, sacrifice, unselfishness etc. All other relations can be fake, but never a mother's. The other relations are no where even nearer to the relation that a mother shares with her kids.

It is one of those relationships which is based on unconditional love. Infact it is probably the only relationship which can claim that. A mother child relation is really a very pure and natural relationship.

I don't know if I think there is a best relation but some are stronger than others. I know that the bond I share with my daughters are very strong to me but I bet their dad would say the same thing about his bond..lol..

Yes, it depends on the individuals. You are right about that, Jen. That is actually why I started this discussion. To see how much each response varied from the other because I thought that the responses will be quite different from each other. Thank you for the response.

The best relation to me is the one I have with God followed by my husband. I think the one with I have with God is the most important because he created me and he is the one that I turn to first when things happen (good or bad). The relationship i have with my husband comes second because we take care of each other and depend on each other and I think that's the way it's supposed to be.

I think the best relation that exists in this world are mine, with my kids. My kids might not think so at the moment, they have boyfriends and girlfriends but once you are a parent, things seem to change whether it's the outlook on life or whatever....mine will always be about my kids.

I don't know about mother and child because I don't have a child. But I do have a goddaughter and I can't tell you how much I love her and what I do for her. She has changed me and I think she is the most special little girl I've ever known. I can't tell you how much I love to spend time with her. So is that what you wanted to know, I hope I was helpful.

Hello Sagnik. No relation you said above can be choiced as the best relation my friend. Its because each relation has its own value in its own region. A mother to child relation is considered soo pure that a mother'll allow a child to cry only when its just born and never ever in the child's later life. A father to child relation is soo good since, even how much ever a father scolds the child, it never comes from his heart. The scoldings are only from his tongue. A husband to wife relation is soo wonderfull since, its the only relation in which either of the two've ultimate possessiveness over the other. A friend's relation is soo strong that, its the only relation that has no ego among eachother. A lover's relation is soo divine that, in a trouble the person just wishes to be near even if he/she won't be able to help. No relation could be considered to be inferiour to the other my friend. Have a nice day.

I would definitely say that it is the relationship between a mother and her child. This doesn't mean that I don't value the relationship that I have with my husband, but it is so different than the relationship between a mother and child. A mother and child relationship starts before the child is ever born and when the child is first placed in their mother's arms it is love at first site. There are no other relationships that exist that are quite the same as this.

The best relationship I think is the relationship between mother and child. the relationship between mother and child is very sincere and will not be broken for any reason.
