Never get along 不能和睦相處

Q: Guruji, in life those people who don’t get along well are hitched together while those who get along really well are not paired together. Is this the plan of the Divine? Is he doing this on purpose?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar: You mean about your marriage? You know, when you don’t get along, you forget all those days when you got along very well. Because those days, you didn’t get along, you feel, 'Oh, from the very beginning, we never got along.'An American couple who were married for 40 years came to me and said that they wanted to divorce. The lady said, 'You know Gurudev, we have been married for 40 years but we never got along even for a single day.' I said, 'How could you spend 40 years and never get along for even one day?!' They are already around sixty to seventy years old. They could not get along for the last forty years and still they were carrying on. Usually this doesn’t happen in American society. If two people don’t get along, that is it. They don’t stay together at all. Suddenly in your mind you think, at some point, 'Oh, we never got along in the past also.' Well, the world is like that. There is no guarantee that those people with whom you think you will get along very, you will actually get along with them very well. The grass is always greener on the other side.
