Liquid Love Never Remains


Zygmunt Bauman, a brilliant analyst of our times, talks about a "liquid society" where nothing remains in place steadily, everything changes capriciously. Unfortunately, this trend affects marriage also. These are bad times for faithfulness and life-long love. There is a "liquid love’ "a light, fragile, superficial kind of love. It is fleeting as an emotion, adaptable as liquid. Surely, this sort of love sustains nothing and eventually disintegrates a relationship.
