Here's my take on the soulmate theory:
Yes, soulmates do exist. But, soulmates doesn't necessarily mean a couple (man and woman) that gets married because of some divine energy that pulled them together(pun intended!). A soulmate may be your brother, father, sister, wife, husband or your ex-boyfriend or ex-girlfriend. Basically, it might be anyone!
Soulmates exist because a message has to be transferred from the past lives to this one. You can also view it as some past karmic debts that have to be fulfilled in this life-time and everyone gets a different time limit with his/her soulmate.
That means,a conversation with your soulmate might last just 5 minutes. In 5 minutes of your life-time, you might have a deep, engrossing conversation with your soulmate and in that conversation, you might get to know something completely new and different about yourself which then, might completely
transform the way in which you perceive the world.
Also, I believe that there can be more than one soulmates in your life-time !
P.S. People who like romantic novels/movies might not approve of the above view. But then, it's a personal opinion and I am entitled to it.
Anyways, thanks for reading !!
