This small volume book is a collection of short stories involving real lives across continents and cultures. It addresses the general subject of most of them-finding and keeping love in our lives in the form of intimate relationships with lots of disappointments that is a commonplace experience across cultures and continent. A significance of the story of handing over a fake diamond that directly means a fake love. This most extraordinary book explores the quest for relationship across culture and the disappointments and shock or hurts that people encounter as they try to find an everlasting relationship and love as people define the marriage and love they want or desire. This is an exhilarating piece of writing that shows that a real relationship of marriage requires matching based on values. This is a significant shift from the romantic idea that is so dominant in our culture but unsustainable in real life. To rely exclusively on romance does not fulfill all one's needs; it leads you to fall into unconsciousness. There are other aspects of affection worth cultivating-devotion, friendship, commitment, trust, reliability, unselfishness, support, lack of greed. Love is something that all cultures need and want.

When they get it, it's totally outside their control when they get what they feel they desire. In our narcissistic culture of surfaces a vast majority of men tend to feel or believe that the world revolves around them and that they are the center of attraction at least in this modern world in some cultures men are nurtured to be promiscuous, and it is tolerated.
