I met a man 16 years ago. 14 years ago, he made me his wife. Like everyone, our marriage has had struggles. Now, after all the battles in which we have triumphed, we are facing our greatest one yet.

My Husband Is Not My Soul Mate

Mary E. Graham | Posted 08.10.2014 | Women
Mary E. Graham

He challenges me, encourages me and talks me down off cliffs, but he isn't the end-all-be-all of my world. That is a dangerous thing to ask of a relationship because I'm in love with and married to a flawed man. And he married a really flawed Mary.

Linda S. Haase

Every now and then, I wake up and wonder who the guy is in my bed and why there is a minivan parked in my driveway. I love the guy, and our daughter, and our cute little house in suburbia. But sometimes I do wonder how the hell I wound up in this life.

Why I Hated The Term Soul Mate (Until Yesterday)

Evelyn Lauer | Posted 06.03.2014 | Women
Evelyn Lauer

The notion that there is one soul mate for everyone is ludicrous. If you expand the definition, a soul mate doesn't even have to be romantic. My best friend is a soul mate; my son is a soul mate; a man I knew but never even kissed is a soul mate.

Lorie Eber

Somehow, I've inadvertently embraced two concepts I'd always derided as pie-in-the-sky wishful thinking. Not only have found my "soul mate," but I've also belatedly discovered my "passion in life." Go figure.

What we've built over the last five years isn't worth throwing away any more than my son's thumb is worth cutting off.

The Real Me

Honey Seltzer

Several weeks ago I had that moment. With very little forewarning we were thrown into each other's path. It was as though the heavens above took mercy on me. Many years ago he had told me we were Soul Mates. I have always believed this. I still do.

"I could have had a number of young, firm, beautiful woman," was the way he put it, "but I realized that what I wanted was you." And he thought those words would make me swoon?

I have come to believe the answer to love, to finding our soul mate, is really finding intimacy within ourselves. If someone provokes irritation in you, this shows a weakness in yourself that needs to be elevated.

Emily Timbol | Posted 02.25.2013 | Religion
Emily Timbol

I love my husband, but he's not God's match for me. God is not an omnipotent Yenta, spending His days deciding which coupling would lead to the easiest, happiest, most attractive twosome. He certainly isn't sending down Christian biased algorithms to profit driven websites.

Sharyn Bires

I admit I did my fair share of regaling friends and family with my dating horror stories, often becoming the "single girl floor show" at parties. But as I watched the sun rise, I realized the most important thing a woman can possibly know about dating: Each bad date is a gift.
