A Story: Love & Marriage

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 through the first row, he saw one big sheaf of wheat, but he wondered….may be there is a bigger one later.

Then he saw another bigger one… But,he thought, may be there is an even bigger one waiting for him.

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

 

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

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 it 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 reached the middle of the field, he picked up one medium corn that he felt would satisfy, and came 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.”
