Does conflict and tragedy bring two people together who normally wouldn’t? I often wonder what binds people together. Is it the bad over the good, conflict over happiness? Do people with similar lifestyles and experiences have relationships that last longer than those that do not? Does tragedy trump everything and create a bond that doesn’t reflect on social cognition or influence? Can you fall in love easier if people aren’t watching? Would you fall in love with someone who wasn’t your type if you were alone with them? Does the amount of time change your feeling or would loneliness cause us to gravitate toward the person who we are “stuck with?” Is it the dependence you would feel if you were isolated from the world?
I recently watched the Lifetime’s revision of The Blue Lagoon: The Awakening which airs Saturday June 16th at 8:00 PM. I kept thinking what I would do if I was stuck on an island with a guy that wasn’t my type. This is me at 16. Not the happily married me, mom of three. I wondered would I have fallen in love with the person I was stuck with just because I was stuck there. What if it was someone deplorable? What if he wasn’t good looking or didn’t have a “hot body.”
I often look at couples and I try to figure out what brought them together. Is it need or dependence or was it their love for one another. How did they find love? I often found my friends just wanting “a guy” to take care of them. I am a modern woman and I married a modern husband. Is that a sign that I have moved away from nature’s intent which is a man should protect a woman? I am going to go with my husband can physically protect me if there was a need although I am trained in restraint and can do things with a purse and high heels shoes that are lethal. I believe that every couple needs an island and hopefully they make the time to return to just being with one another.
