LOVE IS NOT A RELATIONSHIP. Love relates, but it is not a relationship. A relationship is something finished.
Love is never a relationship; love is relating. It is always a river, flowing, unending. Love knows no full stop; the honeymoon begins but never ends. It is not like a novel that starts at a certain point and ends at a certain point. It is an ongoing phenomenon.
You are in love with a woman or a man and immediately you start thinking of getting married. Make it a legal contract. Why? How does the law come into love? Before it disappears settle down, before it disappears do something so it becomes impossible to separate.
