Meeting A Soul Mate Too Late?

I read a story once about a woman who said she met her soul mate a good amount of years after she got married. She was torn because she didn't believe in divorce, but she knew the guy she had met was truly the one she connected with in many ways. What would you do in her situation? Another story I read about was a single man who was around his late 30s or early 40s who had been searching for his soul mate for a decade or more, but still had not found the right woman. He said how he thinks he is too late and missed finding his soul mate. What do you think about that? Can some people miss their opportunities of finding the right one?

Look at the divorce rate...it's not uncommon to leave a spouse for a 'perfect' mate.

The woman who was already married should evaluate her position and talk to her husband. She is married, no matter which is the decision she takes can change her life and affect seriously the life of her husband. About the man, it's never too late to find the soul mate, I have known people who married in their late fifties and they were happy.

The first woman should double think her position. She is in a partnership with her husband. I think she should talk to him. Scary as it might be. As far as the guy is concerned- I have heard of people finding their soul mates in their later years and being very happy. You never know what fate has planned.

I think it can get too late. I'm feeling like it's getting too late for me now that I'm 33, but then my grandfather didn't marry until he was 38. So I have a little hope left.

Two heartbreaking stories here. The first one, the woman who met her true soulmate while she was married, is sad. She had an option, she could have left her husband for the right man. The second story, waiting to find someone, searching for years, is more heartbreaking. Because he most likely did miss his opportunity. My soulmate story is somewhat sorted. Maybe I will write about it some day.

I think you can miss your chance of finding the right person. So you should go for it when the right person comes along.

In my place after marriage a woman gives more important to her husband and children and soulmate goes out of the window since her husband will become her soulmate eventually. Our culture doesn't support this. Whatever you like find before your marriage. Later you are ruining your husband and children life. Matter is different if your husband doesn't love or you are a victim of domestic violence. I believe many of the women forget their love after marriage and concentrate on married life. Don't know how it is in the other part of the world!
