Radhanath Swami on Holy Matrimony

For a marriage to work in this world is very difficult. In fact, anything great is difficult, cheap things come easy. If you want a cheap relationship then everything will be easy, but when the going becomes difficult then the relationship breaks. If we really want our relation to have deep substance and deep meaning, difficulties have to be conquered. From the day of marriage, throught our lives, deeply within our hearts, we have to accept that our relationship is based on higher principles. Because the nature of the mind is that sometimes we like each other and sometimes we don’t. Sometimes we are happy, sometimes we are angry. The ego is very flickering and the mind is even more flickering, and the senses fuel them both. If our relationship is based on this superficial principle of pleasing the mind and senses, then our relationship is very superficial, without much substance.

  7. This needs to be understood particularly in current times where the divorce rate is sky rocketing even in a country like India because marriage is not based on higher principles
