Everyone has a soul. Human life"s purpose is to return to unconditional love. Depending on the type of relationship, as we learn to love unconditionally, we feel affection, friendship and romance.

And soul mates are real you just have to find the rights one.

When do you get your soul if everyone has one? Is it packed in your sperm or ovaries? Does it magically come into being at conception, or birth? You mention science, but there is no scientific evidence for the existence of a soul. Saying something exists isn"t science, science is PROVING something exist that others can repeat, and observe. BOOM SCIENCE!

Also, the debate is about a soul mate, not just having a soul. So not only do you need to prove the existence of a soul, but you also must prove that there are people out there who"s souls are perfectly (perfect seems like a pretty high bar) suited to one another.

I"ve been married to a woman I love for 20+ years, but we had problems just like every other couple. We have overcome the challenges in our relationship (money, kids, religious, etc.) and we did it through hard work and open communication. I wouldn"t give her up for the world. The idea that a relationship isn"t about compromise and hard work, and that there is some magical person out there who will just "fit" with you, causes pain, and a trail of broken relationships because of unrealistic expectations. It doesn"t exist, and although romantic, it"s doing nothing but causing harm.
