Love beyond the grave, part II.

Love beyond the grave, part II.

Maybe the feeling of surrendering to only one partner comes from a kind of fable, a very sad tale, which left a deep and lasting feeling in us; by which we decide. Neither the poetic relations of swans, magpies, crabs nor other animals are as true as the poems try to make us believe. Even these very loyal kinds after the loss of their partners immediately seek another one to continue fulfilling their mission of God.

This our way of thinking, veiled by nostalgia, perhaps even by beauty and morality, is only a few centuries old. The ancient people of pre-Christian culture, have a quite specific relationship to this issue. In Jewish culture, a woman had to marry and continue to fulfil her obligation. It is also known that a man had more women and in case of death the obligation to take care of the house passed to the eldest son. Pagans or Celts did not have marriages as we know it today. Although there was a certain period, when women and men were very open-minded, very equal, and lying down substantially with whom they were pleased. They perceived the natural course as part of their self, and so they were fulfilling it. Germanic and Nordic nations, as we know, perceive women as property and in the case of the death of the lord, they were buried with him. We do not have to warp our face over it, because the women accepted it as an honour proven to their men. They were proud of it!

How should we see the status of women today? Do we prefer the nostalgic myth of love beyond the grave, or pragmatic feeling of that a woman has to fulfil her mission and to live a full life that will not be drowned in sorrow and memories?
