“Romantic love is incomplete. It is a prelude. Love is nourished by the coming of children, who spring from the fountain of love…”
There are so many kinds of love. Each has its level of uniqueness and “complete-ness” – depending on how well we have manifested it. And what is our own perception of “complete-ness”. So what does “complete-ness” mean”?
Romantic Love is different from Offspring Love. One cannot replace one for the other.
For some people, Romantic Love can stop just there and not have children. Can that love be not made to feel complete? There are people who do not want children to disrupt whatever they do and they are happy doing their own thing.
What about people who are not able to have children, can they too not make their love complete? I think, without the presence of children, they would want do more to cling on to each other to be more “completely” happy and not treat their life together as useless and bare.
Looks pretty “complete” to me … :)
After having said that, it does not water-down the truth of that tweet. Having children does make family life feel more “full”. But romantic love is not just merely a prelude. It CAN be “complete” on its own.
David’s tweet sounds like an extract from some religious text?
Or is David hinting that he may be interested in bringing forth some children? … to “nourish his incomplete romantic love” …..?? ;) ;) ;)
We have just, in our previous thread, expressed the thought that David is now probably more driven now to discussive topics. Let’s hope he does not just swallow everything said in religious texts as gospel truth (humour of word intended ;) )
