A Celtic Male View: Love
March 18, 2013 in The Celtic Male
Hello and greetings. It has been awhile since my last article, and for that i apologize. Alot has taken place. I have had some issues with my internet (BLAH) as well as work and the usual ups and downs. And as of yesterday I am married! My new wife and i were Handfasted in a traditional knot ceremony at The Temple of the Phoenix in Peoria,Illinois. It was a beautiful ceremony made more so because i have found, and wed the woman of my dreams. So now this brings me to the topic of this article, for which i would love to hear feedback.
When a person is searching for their soulmate/Partner they can not base it off of appearances alone and must follow the heart. You never know who this person will be or where they will be found. The searcher has to be open and not hung up on society’s “rules” or ideas of what is right or wrong, to an extent of course. If you find and fall in love with a member of your own sex, then, you two were meant to be together. For myself it was a huge age difference. My Wife is over 20 years younger than I am. So I will explain….
We had met originally on a Pagan/Wiccan Facebook Site. We became friends and chatted often about this and that. I had become one of her closest confidants and we spoke of everything. I gave blunt and honest advice when asked for which she was always grateful for. One day she asked me for help to get away from an abusive relationship and of course i offered it. We were friends and Id not turn my back on her as such. Over the course of a very short time we developed feelings for each other that had not previously been there. We have so much in common and agree on most everything. We felt as if we were two peas in the same pod for we have very little NOT in common with each other. Our love grew rapidly as did our commitment to one another. We got engaged and then Wed two weeks later. My parents love her as does my wolf, Casper. We have never argued and if we disagree we discuss it, share our opinions and think about the reasons expressed for the others view.
With this in mind, we go back to the 2nd paragraph were I stated the searcher must be open and not hung up on Society’s rules. Many who have found out our age difference have had sour looks to give or comments. Why? Even though she is much younger she is not a minor, she is an adult. Perhaps it is because of society’s view that one should marry another of similar age, perhaps. So by this way of thinking one should ONLY look for love within these parameters and not be open to what is in his/her face. It is said the Heart wants what the Heart wants. When you meet someone who feels perfect to you, someone you would give your life for or put ahead of yourself and protect with all you have then grab ahold and never let go.My wife did the same towards me. If you do not you may never find that again. I found it, i held on, and as of yesterday, 3rd day of the 3rd month of the 13th year at 3pm, we are husband and wife. My wife did the same towards me. We are both putting 150% into this and i have never felt so loved in my life. Do not let others dictate your life for you. Love is out there for everyone.
Feel free to leave a comment, or message me privately, i will reply to all messages, be they positive or negative. There is more i could say but at this point i feel i would just write more on how wonderful my wife is instead of holding to the topic.
May all the Paths You Walk Be Green and Golden,
