Couple and family relationships are given by nature to teach us how to create a feeling of love through the mind. These relationships teach us how to grow love above all transgressions. We learn how to rein in the natural human ego that evolves from generation to generation. In order to mature as a couple, we need to recognize our egoistic limits and those of our partner as well as learn how to put the brain above the heart (or ego). In other words, we make mutual concessions for each other and create space inside ourselves for our partner’s desires.
