    What is Love and Marriage??

    Advertisements
    A student asks a teacher, "What is love? “The teacher said, "in order to answer your question, go to the wheat field and choose the biggest wheat and come back.

    But the rule is: you can go through them only once and cannot turn back to pick."
    ...
    The student went to the field, went thru first row, he saw one big wheat, but he wonders....maybe there is a bigger one later.

    Then he saw another bigger one... But he thinks maybe there is an even bigger one waiting for him.

    Later, when he finished more than half of the wheat field, he start to realize that the wheat is not as big as the previous one he saw, he know he had missed the biggest one, and he regretted.

    So, he ended up went back to the teacher with empty hand.

    The teacher told him, "this is love... You keep looking for a better one, but when later you realize, you have already missed the person."

    "What is marriage then?" the student asked.

    The teacher said, "in order to answer your question, go to the corn field and choose the biggest corn and come back. But the rule is: you can go through them only once and cannot turn back to pick."

    The student went to the corn field, this time he is careful not to repeat the previous mistake, when he reach the middle of the field, he has picked one medium corn that he feel satisfy, and come back to the teacher.

    The teacher told him, "this time you bring back a corn.... You look for one that is just nice, and you have faith and believe this is the best one you get.... This is marriage."

    I don't know why but I find this really unsettling. I can't tell if the message is supposed to be that we end up settling for the most decent person we can find or if we end up falling in love with the imperfections of the person we choose.
