Soulmates Married For 65 Years Die 10 Minutes Apart

Posted in: ,

‘Soulmates’ married for 65 years die just 10 minutes apart, an elderly couple whose relatives said they “would not have wanted to live without each other” died just minutes apart earlier this month. Earlier this month, 88-year-old Harry Stevenson and his wife, Mavis, 89, died just 10 minutes apart while at the care facility where they both lived and shared a room together.

Workers at the facility said Mavis took a turn for the worse and passed away at 10:50 a.m. on November 3. Nurses told Harry in the most caring way they could his beloved had died. They said he shed a few tears before they left the room, but when they came back 10 minutes later, they found Harry had passed away himself.

How Do You Express Love To Your Soul Mate?

Posted in: , , , ,

by Nkem Akinsoto

I believe in soul mates because I believe I found mine and married him. But when I say soul mate I'm not saying that Atala is a knight in shining armor or that I won't be able to live without him, but Atala is the love of my life and I don't know that there could be any like him for me.

I am not perfect, not by a long shot, but he understands me and accepts me, flaws, mistakes, imperfections and all. He is also not perfect, but he is amazing, awesome, and understanding in all the ways I need him to be.

We are both complete but we choose each day to complement and compliment each other. He brings out in me a sweet and beautiful heart, making me thankful to have him in my life. And I have no doubt in my mind that it is the same for him.

My Husband is Not My Soul Mate by Mary Graham - Do You Agree?

Posted in: , , , ,

Mary Graham is a teacher and blogs about the thoughts on soul mates that a couple of lines from one of her 7th graders assignment sparked off in her head. She feels that a lot of young women are misled by the ideals of The One, Prince Charming, Soul Mates and similar romantic tropes. In a discussion I was having, someone also echoed the same sentiment, saying Mills & Boons should be banned. I'm not sure I agree with that, but Mary Graham makes a lot of sense. Read below and let's discuss. You can also vote by the right.

Soul Mates and Second Bests

Posted in: , , , ,

I'm sure most of you are familiar with the concept of soul mates - two people who, across the vast expanses of space and time, meet, fall in love and spend the rest of their lives together. They are united in love especially because for each one, the other is the most special person in the universe.

It's a very captivating idea, especially because most people want to feel that they are the most important person to someone else. So it's no surprise that it's an idea that has sold a ton of songs, books and movies.

Now I think it would be great if the only couples who ever got together were soul mates. But in reality, not everyone gets to meet someone who thinks they are that most special person. Sometimes, they're in the wrong place, or they're searching at the wrong time. Sometimes, they're just too different from anyone else to find the person who will love them right back.
