Tonight I am having a conversation with Hassan Perez a Teacher who is single and based in Miami, Florida.
Hassan is a Cuban, Muslim, he shared the following thoughts with me….
As per the theme we are going to discuss and explore I want to share with you Ebony some of my comments from a discussion a Muslim sister initiated with her connections on the book of faces today. She asked folks what their thoughts are on friendship as a key building block for marriage and the following is what I offered:
Many cases boil down to - here's that important concept again - INTENTION. Are you entering into a relationship to have someone to wait on you and serve you? Are you pursuing someone for sex? Or are you looking for a companion that you can share lives with, the tears and giggles, the labour and leisure, the highs and lows, the joy and pain, the warm sunlight and the pouring rain, the good and bad, the hopes and fears, the hopes and regrets as well as the innermost secrets? Those seeking to find and be in an intimate and blessed relationship with the best of friends work towards the latter and, subsequently, are not caught up in the former.
My questions are… Why do things sometimes get all weird when we change a friendship into a relationship? What’s your experience when dating friends? Do friends turn into great lovers, husbands or wives?
