Do Some Couples "Miss Their Moment"?
“Some things are destined to be -- it just takes us a couple of tries
to get there.” ~J.R. Ward
I was watching a television show Sunday afternoon in which one of the characters was explaining why her and her ex never got married despite being seemingly perfect for one another. She said that, in essence, they "missed their moment". According to the character, every couple has a specific time frame...a moment where they can either catch fire or fizzle out...a moment in which the stars are aligned. If they miss that window, it's almost impossible for the stars to align the right way again. Such couples have missed their moment.
This was very thought provoking to me, as I am a big believer in fate, destiny, and serendipity. To me, if two people are truly meant to be together, the stars will re-align themselves again and again and again if that's what their destiny has in store. But then again, maybe that's just my idealized vision of love.
What do you think? Do some couples miss their moment? Or can fate overcome that?
