The Difference In Love And Marriage

This is an allegorical and funny story about the differences between Love and Marriage. Enjoy!

A student asks a teacher, “What is love?”

The teacher said, “In order to answer your question, go to the wheat field and choose the biggest wheat and come back. But there is one rule: you can go through them only once and cannot turn back to pick.” The student went to the field, went thru the first row, he saw one big wheat, but he wonders… may be there is a bigger one later. Then he saw another bigger one… But there may be an even bigger one waiting for him.

Later, when he finished more than half of the wheat field, he started to realize that the wheat is not as big as the previous one he saw, he knew he has missed the biggest one, and he regretted. So, he ended up going back to the teacher with empty hands. The teacher told him, “This is love… You keep looking for a better one, but later you realise, you have already missed the right person…” “What is marriage then?” the student asked.

The teacher said, “In order to answer your question, go to the corn field again and choose the biggest corn and come back. But the rule is: you can go through them only once and cannot turn back to pick."


The student went to the corn field, this time he was careful not to repeat the previous mistake, when he reached the middle of the field, he has picked one medium corn that he feel satisfy, and come back to the teacher. The teacher told him, “This time you bring back a corn. You looked for one that is just nice, and you have faith and believe this is the best one you get… This is marriage.”
