Staying in a relationship – Love or Charity?

Staying in a relationship out of pity is not love; it’s charity. And when it comes to love, no one should be a beggar.

Staying in a relationship out of pity is not love; it’s charity. And when it comes to love, no one should be a beggar.

There should only be one reason why one should stay in a relationship – LOVE. It’s the reason why you got into that relationship in the first place, right? You should not confuse pity with love, as you can be compassionate towards everyone but not in love to all. No one should beg for love, because love, should be free.

    In Indian Mythology it is mentioned that if some one is in relationship with some one and is taking care of her needs at domestic, social fronts and meeting bodily requirements, then it is known as Charitable cause. For example; if a married woman is not getting pregnant and due to illicit relation if she gets pregnancy, then it is not sin. In other words, if any one is making one’s happy, it may be called a charity. There is lot of meanings of relationships. What do you feel, Gay marriage is also a case of Charity.

      I am not agree with you. If a married woman don’t get pregent, in that case she may adopt a child. there is no means of illicit relations in our Hindu Society. I feel that there must be faith between any relationship. How it can be a charity if Gay married with each other????

    Charity begins at home what do u think

      No doubt, this phrase saying Charity begins at Home is also most applicable. In global scenario, this happens and sometimes a known factor to almost all members of the family. But, mind it, some kinds of ethics have to be maintained, otherwise cause of charity may result in to misfortune with Allah’s Will.

    What is Love and its corresponding effects on sharing relationship is a matter of concise and he or she who understands its deepness would think much deeper. The husband or wife may be in real love from the core of their hearts but that does not mean that their biological thirst is met. How many married couples are there who have adopted the child in case no issue of child is to them. Leave aside, child issue, take the zest for sex appetite. Where has this been banned? In our early primitive life, the women used to be common for male members and heads of primitive society had no binding. Since our inception and thinking has changed with passage of the time and we have started talking much about genuine relationship. But still the essence of Love in reality has nothing to do with bodily requirements. Many may agree and talk about rituals bindings. Try to understand the matter from broader spectrum and think for Humanity and Way of Living with full bloom and joy, then only one can realize the real meaning of relationship.

    To love u must accept, everything else is unique to all.
    Love is an ‘ experience ‘ a delightful entwining of two souls harmonising through light.
    We as humans become submissive under loves control. Love reigns in superiority & u will do as it demands & not what u feel desires
