Relations are beautiful and yet they can be constraining. In a perfect world, one can be thy self and still have a partner who allows one to be true to thyself. It is a paradox in most cultures because once in a relationship, many feel obligated to include one with their partner. Society has difficulties with the single adult person. What is their problem, why are they not in a relation, how do I invite a single to a dinner celebration? Maybe that person just wants to be free? Is it beautiful to be together or is it uncomfortable to be held in place?
