LOVE AND MARRIAGE;
A student asked a teacher, “What is Love?” The teacher said, “In order to answer your question, go to the corn field, choose the biggest corn and come back. But the rule is: You can go through them only once and not turn back to pick. Once you miss it, you cannot go back to it.”
The student headed for the field, and went through the first row. He saw one big corn, but he wondered may be there is a bigger one later. Then he saw another bigger one but wondered if there may be an even bigger one waiting for him.
Afterward, when he had completed more than half of the corn field, he started to realize that the corn growing around the area were not as big as the previous one he saw. He knew he missed the biggest one, and he regretted it. So, he went back to his teacher empty handed.
The teacher told him, “This is Love you keep looking for a better one, but you only realize it when you have already missed the person.”
“What is Marriage then?” the student asked.
The teacher said, “In order to answer your question, go back 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 back to the corn field, and this time he was careful not to repeat the previous mistake. When he reached the middle of the field, he picked a corn that he felt satisfied with, and came back to the teacher.
The teacher told him, “When picking the corn this time you looked for one that is just nice, that you had faith in and are satisfied with. This is Marriage. Life is not about searching for the happiness but to feel contentment in the things you have.”
