Love by Way of Chance

Love is one of the most precious and treasured feelings in
one\'s life. I feel love and affection should be used carefully
and under strong self-control. There are two ways of falling in
love. The first way, which is mostly admired, is by way of
chance. An example of chance is as follows: a man and women are
introduced to one another and make eye contact. Then a certain
feeling bonds the two, forming love, which eventually will lead
to an everlasting marriage. The other way to fall in love is by
choice. It could be either the parent\'s choice or one of the
couple\'s choices. I feel that love by way of chance has a higher
percentage of a lasting marriage than does love by choice.

Love that occurs by chance is usually not because she or he
is pretty or smart, rather, it\'s a link of some sort, like
personalities or characteristics in common. Some people might not
like a stupid, fat, or repulsive looking mate, but I feel it
shouldn\'t depend on physical appearances. Affection should be
based on what\'s in the heart and possibly the brain. The way I
see it falling in love by way of chance is the most beautiful
feeling in the world.

Love by choice, especially not yours, is a horrible way to
live a life. It\'s hard for the one who didn\'t have the choice. If
one has to pick their husband or wife it should not depend on
their money status or their popularity, it should be a careful
decision that will make one happy for the rest of their life. A
good example that my classmates and I could relate to, is the

Hasidic world. Daughters and sons are usually married off by
their parents through a deal at the ages of twelve and thirteen.

They grow up knowing whom they\'re going to marry for seven or
eight years having no say in the matter. They have to learn to
love their mate and I feel it\'s a miserable way to marry someone
and feel for that person.

I think that love by way of chance is a far more better way
to love someone than by way of choice. I feel that love is the
most beautiful feeling and that everyone should have a chance to
have a feeling of true love. I also advise that before one is to
marry, they should make sure it\'s true love so they could have an
eternal marriage.
