Teachings on Unconditional Love
It is extremely easy to say that you love someone but at times it becomes difficult to prove that through actions.
Buddhism has very accurate views on love as they tell people to stay non attached because if a human being will stay attached to a person or thing it will have a negative impact on their mental health and they would have to suffer more in their life because of the attachment they would have.
In Buddhism, it is taught in a spiritual sense to stay away from those things and people who will lead you into an emotionally traumatizing situation. It is precisely mentioned in his teachings that if you want to stay in a happy relationship it is important to accept the partner in the way they are without expecting your partner to change in the manner that you are willing to want them to be.
In achieving personal fulfilment it is important to love the person in the way they are. There might be many circumstances that would compel them to change in some or the other way but it should not affect your perception and love for them so that you can lead a healthy and peaceful life.
Buddhism encourages people to love unconditionally without expecting anything from others to maintain a good and healthy relationship. Buddhism does not force anyone to get married, it is stated that if the person would be in a happier mood after marriage only then there is a need of getting married otherwise they can search for various options for their emotional balance. According to Buddhism, marriage should not be forced onto anyone rather it should be an individual choice to a specific person that whether to get married or not. Buddhism also has a very different perception regarding divorce that if a person is following Buddhism rules to lead his life then there would be no situation occurring where the person would wish to get divorced by their romantic partner because even in the most difficult situation it will be easy for them to adjust with their partner in the same manner without any grudge and any change in their feeling. For a perfect marriage, Buddhism tells people to have less age difference between the couples so that it would be easy for the couples to cope up with each other.
