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?

Love beyond the grave, part I.

Love beyond the grave, part I.

We love stories where old people hold each other’s arms until death. When they die almost simultaneously, after decades of living together. We love the nostalgia where a mother with children brings flowers on the grave of their father, who passed away tragically and prematurely. Mother never gets married, bring up children in the love of their father, who they will never meet. When the mother dies of old age, children bury her next to her husband. We call it love beyond the grave and it warms our heart, we feel that it is probably the right thing.

Or maybe we’re wrong and live with some false feeling? The feeling that we have received from television or books. Or perhaps from a Christian theory? Feeling that attacks our emotional side and falsely manipulate us to something that is not natural?

Should a widow with children get married again and fill them in the feeling of a complete family? A family with the authority of father and mother as the arms of comfort? There is evidence that children of incomplete marriage have in adulthood fundamental social phobia and largely fail to integrate themselves into a permanent relationship. It is a great paradox, but in most cases it is true. There are hundreds and hundreds of girls who even at young age after a tragic accident of a boyfriend, enter into other relationship and to fulfil their biological role of women. It reflects very poorly on their psyche and they wither with loneliness.

How should we think about it and how to deal with it? What is more moral?
