ICYMI: DOES COMMON HAVE A SECRET ROMANCE WITH REGINA HALL?
Actually, everyone has many more than just one person with whom he/she can marry and establish a loving, happy and enduring relationship.
Many years ago, I heard Rav Ahron Soloveichik zt”l explain that bashert guarantees only one thing: God arranges that you encounter that person.
does not guarantee that you will marry that person, or that the marriage will be a happy and fulfilling one; those depend on our free choice and good character traits.
Last month there were also reports he was dating Regina Hall, but the “Go” singer shot them down saying they are just friends.
It’s no secret that everybody wants to date Common!
The mentality that in a world of more than seven billion people there is only one person wandering about that is meant for me – my twin, my soul mate – who, if found, will provide me eternal happiness and who, if not found, will doom me to despair and misfortune for the rest of my life, is a dangerous illusion.
There is a gigantic field of hundreds, and maybe even more, of appropriate and worthwhile mates.
A successful marriage depends less on the identity of the person chosen and more on one’s ability to conduct himself/herself in that marriage on a daily basis.
Therefore, the task before you is not to decide “is this the one?
A single is not a “half-person.” A single person is not a broken vessel or a worthless wretch.
