Love, Date and Marriage – Is finding a Date as same as Marriage?

A student asks a teacher, "What is love?"

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 field, gone through first row, he saw a big corn, but he wonders....might be there is a bigger one later.

Then he saw another bigger one... But there might be an even bigger one waiting for him.

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

So, he ended up and 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 miss 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, will answer your question on marriage.

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."

A good analogy, but that corn won't stay fresh for long.

Wow that's such a great lesson. I like it.

Interesting perspective indeed, greetings.

Olga Hebert said...

Interesting analogy...but I am not sure I agree that love is ending up with nothing.

Jo said...

Pretty good examples. Not sure they are totally true though.

Denise said...

good post

Breathtaking said...

Bob Bushell said...

That is the way to do it.

That is such a thought-inspiring story. I've been married for 47 years and it is very satisfying to have that other person always there. Sometimes I have wondered about other people I did not marry and how their lives turned out, but I'm happy I found a wonderful person to marry.

Yes.
But we have no chance to regret.

Hello, interesting post and story. Picking your soul mate, sometimes you just know you have the right person.
Happy Monday, enjoy your new week ahead!

A neat tale!

That student really did his/her homework. I never had one who would go walk in cornfields -- twice. :)

Dating stinks all around, marriage? hahaha

Interesting!!!

Great post! I think it is sad how easily people divorce today! Some of the reasons are ridiculous, some are valid, (such as abuse), but some divorces could be prevented if both parties work together in love instead of against one another.

I really enjoyed that.

Debbie said...

A sweet story, you do find, it was the best corn after all!!!!

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Great post!

Launna said...

A good lesson in trusting ourselves instead of always looking for what we think is better and losing out on what we really want ;-)

Small Kucing said...

thought provoking. Yes. ....a times we keep on looking forward to the future and yet fail to appreciate what we have currently

Ahh, now that's a very thoughtful lesson. You must do the 'dating' first though to see what's out there. ;-)

Nice illustration. Thanks for sharing.

Reminds me of Christmas tree shopping on a tree farm! Then we could never find where the "perfect one" was that we saw early on as we kept searching.

Mo said...

And id the third trip to the cornfield the one to find a lover to have an affair

Beate said...

That is an amazing story! Thank you so much for sharing. There's a lot of truth in this and I wish we all had a teacher like that who'd explain the difference to us. I wonder if more people would be happier in their lives and with their spouses.
Have a wonderful week!
