Logic is Variable

an argument starts here

Love me alone, no one else

Calculated love

I saw a matrimonial add online. It was given by a girl herself.
Her profile read, “22 year beautiful girl, MBBS, hight five feet eight inches, color white, a clinic in America and big piece of agri land back home.”
She had also added a semi nude display picture to catch the attention.
We asked our friend Ikram Athar to heave a look, “you were looking exactly for similar girl. Go ahead.”
“How can I marry her,” he replied sadly?
“Like anyone else can do,” we all replied unanimously.
But she lacks one major quality I need.
Which one? We asked.
She doesn’t love me. And I don’t know here, he offered his excuse.
Shoaib Ahmed, another of our friends came up and married the girl in a jiffy.
He was a businessman.

Relevance

Have you started cultivating that girl?
Yes!
Remember how many people are after her?
That is not really relevant. Important is who she is after and loves.

Love me alone, no one else

Does she love you?
Not sure! But I am sure of one thing that she doesn’t want me to love anyone else.
Secret
I have not been able to figure out.
What?
A secret!
Which one?
I have a sense to get impressed by beauty but not every beautiful girl appeals to that sense. One the other hand she is one and only beauty but doesn’t have an impact on everyone. Me sense has only accepted her. So much so that I can’t live without her!
What matters the most, my sense or her beauty?

For the love of Allah

I can see sinking people getting onto the bank.
What are you saying? How can sinking people get to the bank?
Yes, sure!
How?
Those who are drowning in the love of Allah Almighty!

Common problems

Both husband and wife loved each other till the end.
How come?
Both were married second time, both had siblings from earlier marriages, friends and relatives of both always mocked their marriage and they also had earlier experiences as a common elements. So many commons cemented their marriage.

They are of course philosophical.I have had the chance to read Pal Pal and Reza Reza Kainat by Abbas Khan and I enjoyed it.

These are stories that really made me think. With "Calculated Love," the last sentence says it all. The wedding was a merger.

The message in "Love me alone, no one else" is deep. I think that men and women often come to love differently.

"Relevance" made me think of jealous husbands. Many men get nervous if they know other men find the wife or girlfriend attractive. As I see it, jealousy has no place in a relationship. If I tell you that I love you, and demonstrate my commitment in many ways, it should not matter who is "after" me. I have already made my choice.

Thank you for sharing these stories.
