Partnerships and Marriages
 
When I was a 12 year old lad, a regular chore given to me by my mother, was to collect meat from the butcher shop. When collecting the meat the butcher would ask
if I required seasoning I always said yes although I never knew what it was. Later I did learn that seasoning was a 50/50 mixture of salt and pepper
which flavoured and spiced the meat. I became a lover of this seasoning but I never liked salt, and pepper was just horrible. What had become clear to me was that
the butcher had accidentally or otherwise made a third product called seasoning, two completely different products and two completely different tastes that when
mixed together tasted nothing like the two products they were made from. Marriage - to work well has to be like seasoning, when pepper partners salt, it is no longer pepper and visa versa and from the taste of the seasoning they never try to be, and so become a success as seasoning. When a man and women decide that marriage is for
them it would be a great start to their new married life if they could grasp this seasoning principle. Both must be mindful they will not be the individuals they once were, they are now a partnership, they are something new. The individual ways will be very much gone If one tries to dominate or over power the other then the marriage partnership cannot be seasoning. We spend so much time looking, finding an ideal partner and love what we see, and then when we marry them we spend the rest of our life trying to
change them after accepting and liking them for what were in the first place. In the seasoning model pepper allows salt to be salt and salt allows pepper to be
pepper and so make a very successful seasoning, Salt and Pepper as individuals is no more. So look and learn at this seasoning model and watch how happier you become. Never take advice from your friend about your marriage. Friends like to tell you what they would do, if they were you, but the challenge they give you is
something they would never tackle themselves. These friends like to live their lives through others. Always be very careful what advice you take, and from who.
