We as an individual needs a physical mate. That's nature's design. We'd like an intellectual mate. That's the need generated by our intellect, our mind. Our 'soul' supposedly transcends both, our body as well as our mind. In that case, is it required to have a mate?

Comment : To me there are three levels. The body, the mind and the soul. The body, like you said is nature's design and seeks a mate. The mind as it evolves, also looks for people to stimulate and connect to. (Ummm.. there's also the heart, which is easily confused with the soul.) The soul however is a different ball game!! Only a few have been able to identify with it... and from what we hear of their experiences, is that the moment you identify with the soul, you realise that it is one with universe - and 'that' I believe is the journey man kind is on.

Comment : I agree, personal space is vital, however close a couple may be. A couple needs to, over time find the balance that suits them both. Too much space may leave one partner feeling alone at times. And too little space is ofcourse stifling.

I would like to know your views about giving space to each other in a marriage. Do you agree that too much involvement and closeness translate into stifling of breathing space in a marriage. Don't individuals need their freedom and privacy even in close relationships? What are the limits of personal space we need to respect? Do let me know what you think.

Comment : A few months after my marriage, a man I had just met at a party asked me, 'why are you just a house wife'.

I was furious. Didn't even bother telling him that I am a professor and working. He didn't deserve any justification from me- whether or not I choose to work is not his concern!

Having seen my mother and mother in law, I knew fully well how challenging and demanding it is to run a home well. You have to be efficient and totally on top of your game to make it run like a well oiled machine. So all I could manage to say was, 'what do you mean just a house wife? What do YOU know about running a home'?

God knows why people have opinions on women and their work status.

Personally, am so so grateful to all full time mothers, lady doctors/ dentists/teachers, bus didi's, domestic staff, female parking assistants, lady swimming coaches and bank Tellers and writers... and so on.. for making society what it is. I feel a society is beautiful when its women can be out there, as active members, contributing without fear and choose for themselves what they want to do.
