I think we've talked enough about soulmates. Let's move on to complementarianism, the superior alternative to soulmate theory.
In soulmate theory, the idea is that two soulmates complete each other. In complementarianism, the two romantic partners complement each other. They go well together and work together to build a strong relationship.
Typically, in a relationship, you see people do different things, based on their strengths. For example, in my relationship with Shana, she tends to be the one who does the cooking, because she went to culinary school, and I once burnt macaroni and cheese. The fact that Shana is good at cooking doesn't take anything away from me, or make me lesser. We're different, and it's logical for her to do what she's good at, while I do what I'm good at.
This is the mindset that the Catholic Church has. Men and women are different, and one such difference is that only men can become priests, while only women can become nuns. This doesn't take away from one gender or make one gender better than the other. The two genders have different roles, but ultimately they complement each other and work together for the good of the whole.
You can see this mindset in other places, which is why I brought up the topic of secondary differences between men and women. Currently, in the United States, people believe that women are naturally more caring and nurturing than men. Because of this, the US Court system favors women in custody disputes; the idea is that children should be raised by their mother, not their father, because women are more caring.
Your thoughts? Do you like complementarianism? Does it make sense? Should I stop being so philosophical and go back to talking about things like videogames and movies?
