I can bless your love, but I cannot bless your marriage…..OSHO
I WANT TO GET MARRIED. PLEASE GIVE ME YOUR BLESSINGS.
Have you gone crazy or something? Love is enough; marriage is not going to add anything to it. In fact, why are you in such a hurry to finish some beautiful experience?
Wait. When you see that now love is finished, you can get married.
You are very young, only twenty-two. One should marry only when one is wise enough.
Marriage is not for young people. For young people is to fool around. Marriage is for those who have experienced life in many ways, who have seen all the colors, the whole spectrum of it, and are now ready to settle.
My own suggestion is that nobody should marry before forty-two. When you have already had your first heart attack, then marry. Before that it is too early, and foolish. But maybe because you are only twenty-two and foolish the question has arisen.
You are too young; wait a little. When you are tired — when you are tired of adventures, when you are tired of your freedom, when you are tired of your openness to life and its millions of opportunities — then you can go to a court and get married. But why now?
Love, and love as deeply as possible. And if love itself becomes the marriage, that is another thing, altogether different. If love itself becomes such an intimacy that it is unbreakable, that is another thing, that is not a legal sanction.
Legal sanctions are needed only because you are afraid. You know that your love is not enough; you need the legal support for it. You know perfectly well that you can escape or the woman can escape, hence you need the policeman to keep you together. But this is ugly, to need a policeman to keep you together. That's what marriage is!
I can bless your love, but I cannot bless your marriage. If love itself is your marriage, then all of my blessings are there for you; otherwise wait. There is no hurry. It is better to wait than to repent later on.
