Radhanath Swami on Deeper Love

In marriage, you may unify on the principle of romance or beauty, but the bodies change. Don’t have faith that you’ll remain attracted to the beauty of a woman or a man. And the minds change also, because two egos will have so many differences. That’s why according to religious principles, you take a vow, so you have to stay together no matter what because you have made a vow. You have a responsibility to each other, you have a responsibility to God, you have a responsibility to your children, and through that sacrifice of somehow or other tolerating each other and forgiving each other, you actually learn to really love each other much deeper than the love of the glances and the touches and the words.

  11. Thanks for sharing such a wonderful advice. It re-solidifies the importance of vows taken during marriage and to overlook temporary attractions and focus on more substantial things like tolerance and sacrifice ultimately leading to a healthy marital relationship.
    Again, thanks for enlightening us.
