Get The Ring: How to Find & Keep the Right One for Life.
Shimon Green - Part 4
selfish by preempting and being kind to each other before the other one has to take anything. Good friends do the same thing, by the way. By husband and wife that’s the pinnacle. That’s the greatest thing of all. What do you think marriage is about? I meet, people, they make me laugh. They want to discuss relationship philosophy. I guarantee you that the fundamental quality of marriage is only one thing. It’s just taking care of another person. It comes down to the garbage and diapers and shopping and somebody saying — just get me a cup of tea. You know, when you have a lousy day… I hope you never have any… but you know, one of those days. You know sometimes when one of those days feels like it’s been two of those days? You come home and you’re like — Oh my goodness. I don’t know how I can go forward. The one you love says — How was it today? And you say — I’m not talking about it. And they say — "hey, look, it’s okay." And it really is okay. That’s worth everything. That’s what it’s all about. That’s the whole story.
So the finest thing that a person could have in life, in a marriage, is to have a partner who will save them from being selfish; a partner who will do for them before they have to do for themselves. And the nicest thing you can do for someone else is the same. So I think about what I would do… and that’s bliss by the way. That’s a marriage. It never stops being beautiful. You’re insane for the person you love. You’d kill for them, there’s no question about it. Because the person gives you everything. I’m telling you, you can see it. Watch couples. I do. You can see it in the eyes whether it’s there or not. When it’s there, o my goodness gracious. I wouldn’t fight them with a Howitzer. When I see couples like that, if I had an army I wouldn’t go up against them. I’m afraid of the couples like that. I’m telling you why. Because it’s like blood.
It’s not like those people who degrade their spouse — "My Bessie. My wife…" Forget that stuff. That’s sick, That’s not happiness.
The person with true love would kill for his wife. He'd take a butter knife to do it if he had to. He would do anything for a person like that. Because that’s somebody who’s giving you the most precious thing in life.
So now when you want to think about a partner, and this is a story. I go round the world, I meet people all the time. That’s my business. I feel bad when people are stuck. And I see people give up the love of their life again and again. I’ve seen it so many times. They give up the love of their life. I’ve seen guys and girls give up the person who would have given them the most sweetest and most beautiful life, because that person didn’t look, or sound, or act like… and this is the worst part… forget about that they didn’t look, or sound, or act like what this person thought would be good. A lot of the time it’s that the person didn’t look, or sound, or act like what this person thought the people that they wanted to please thought
