Burning Love Versus Satisfaction

As I sit here listening to iTunes I just finished a set that included “Ring of Fire” by Johnny Cash, “Burning Love” by Elvis and a handful of other songs that I don’t feel like listing. These songs pose this evening’s “hot” question.

If you had to choose between the following life choices what direction would you go in?

A) A long lasting marriage based upon trust and mutual understanding. You are happy, but just satisfied.


B) A mad passion that is all-consuming. A hot and torrid love affair in which you find your partner to be intoxicating. Something like this is more than satisfying, but a fire that burns that hot could burn out.

Weigh your options and select your poison. What say you?

    Too many cats- They can make you crazy.

    I’d choose D, spinsterhood with twenty cats.

    Of course a combination of A and B is ideal, but the idea is to choose which you prefer.

    Am I the only man who is willing to comment here. Of course, the best would be a combination of a and b.

    Who says they have to be mutually exclusive?

    I have known older couples who have been married for a long time and have both the solid marriage and the passion.

    I already have choice A. So…

    Because grass always looks greener on the other side and I have never had an opportunity to try B, I would choose B. But…

    I don’t want to hurt anyone and if choice B would hurt anyone than it wouldn’t be worth it.

    But dang it, choice B would be fun!

    I have tried B. Needless to say it was NOT a healthy relationship. I tried A and ended up divorced because Mr. Man could not keep it in his pants with other women. So now I am trying C. A nice long medium burn relationship that has a comfortable feel most of the time with passionate spikes thrown in once or twice a week. (Passion does not necessarily = sex by the way)

    Love and Light

    That short post answers a question that’s arisen while reading your blog, Jack!
