"Therefore we should keep boys and girls apart, that they are pure and virgin within themselves. On mixing with one another, in becoming familiar, in being 'pals,' they lose their own female and male integrity. And they lose the treasure of the future, the vital sex polarity, the dynamic magic of life. For the magic and the dynamism rests on OTHERNESS.
"For actual sex is a vital polarity. And a polarity which rouses into action, as we know, at puberty."--D.H. Lawrence
Perhaps this is one reason out of many why our marriages fall apart so quickly. The relationship loses its passion, depth and overall vitality because there isn't much OTHERNESS.
