@bebero:  Honestly, I couldn’t have another relationship like this. I’m sorry but I just couldn’t. I’ve been in plenty of relationships so I know what to compare it to. And really, I think this meant to be and regardless of what happens, he is only one I’d want to spend my life with. I don’t think that’s unhealthy, it’s just what I believe.

@bebero:  Why is it unhealthy if it’s what we believe? What we think is best for us, and for whoever the other potential date is? My grandmothers have both lost their husbands, one of my grandfather’s died over 40 years ago, the other one died 16 years ago. Both my grandmothers remained single, and are both women I admire. They have led fulfilling and happy lives even though they didn’t date or marry again.

@Jacqui90:  “Why is it unhealthy if it’s what we believe?”

the fact that you believe it doesn’t have anything to do with whether I think it’s healthy or not. I don’t think it is healthy to think that way

I absolutely believe that God had a specific person in mind for me and that I needed to be willing to wait until God brought him into my life before I could marry and still be in the center of God’s plan for my life. However, I have not ever experienced the type of blissfully happy, soul-mate relationship to which some of you are referring. Although my DH and I love each other and are attracted to each other emotionally, spiritually, intellectually, and physically, our decision to marry was not based on some type of magical, outrageously romantic and passionate connection or incredible levels of compatibility. In fact, we are polar opposites in many ways, which can lead to conflict and disagreements. However, we both believe that God led us to each other and that He intends for our differences to result in each of us being challenged and stretched to die more to ourselves and to become more Christlike. I have never met anyone like my DH, and I honestly cannot even imagine being married to anyone else. Even though marriage has been very difficult and challenging for us at times and for a variety of reasons, we complement each other well. One has strengths where the other has weaknesses. As Scripture says, “Two are better than one.”

If we are talking in the spiritual sense, then yes, my Fiance and I are soulmates. I could have easily settled for anyone else, but if I couldn’t connect with them spiritually (note: not religiously) — they weren’t IT. My Fiance and I feel the most spiritual when we’re out with nature or play music together.

I see soulmates as kindred spirits — kind of like how Anne of the Green Gables (L.M. Montgomery’s book) describe her type of kindred spirits. My best friend is my soul-sister. My Fiance is my soul-partner. There are many soul-“mates” in my life; not just one.

The role of the soulmate is simple: you always make sure that you take great care of yourself before you take care of others. Meaning, each of us (my Fiance and I) takes the time to meditate on our own, develop ourselves and share our thoughts, ideas and plans for the future. We always make sure that we respect the other person as an individual. We’re two individuals coming together as a team — as soulmates.
