We learn to live somewhere between the lives we have and the lives we would like to have.
Tony was a young adolescent always complained of not having a girlfriend... He secretly wanted to be like his friends who were in a relationship. While praying he would ask god to give him one girlfriend... even if it was for a few months, he wanted to be in a relationship.
A few years later, he found Maria, they fell in love... everything seemed amazing... since all his friends were getting married, he felt it was right time to get married.. so he proposed marriage to Maria.
Maria was commitment phobic and not prepared for a long term relationship... she had other dreams.. so she denied it... Their relationship broke down.
Tony couldn't take the heart-break, and went into depression. He would question god, why did you give me a girlfriend if you had to take her away??
A few months later as he came out depression, he again prayed to God... please give me a great wife... a beautiful, well educated and financially sound wife.
There are millions of Tony's and Maria's out there... They are adjusting to live somewhere between the lives they have and the lives they would like to have.
