THE WIFE AND THE PROSTITUTE
If there is a stone in your backyard in the morning, it will remain at the same place till evening as it was in morning, but a flower blooms in the morning and by evening it droops, falls to the ground. The flower is a living thing, it will be born, it will live and then it will die. The stone is an inanimate object, whatever it was in the morning, it will also be in the evening. The stone is very stable and lasting. Our Marriages are like stone.
There is no basic difference between going to a prostitute and being in a marriage not born in love – very little difference, it is not a basic difference. You buy a prostitute for a night, you purchase a wife for your whole life. This is no big difference, when there is no love, it is a purchase – whether you are hiring a woman for a night or making arrangements for a lifetime.
