Jean Paul Sartre & Simone de Beauvoir
As we know, Jean and Simone did not desire to have a conventional relationships, that’s why they initiated some kind of a “transparency pact”.
They believed that the marriage deforms the character and creates the addiction. The wrong kind of addiction.
The main rules:
- You can’t own the person
- You can have sex with other people, but our ‘existential love’ belongs to each other
They would be allowed to live their lives, free to take other lovers and live where ever they pleased, as long as they told one another everything. And they did. Almost 51 years.
It gave them the freedom they wished, but to what price?
‘We were always free to pursue any desire that we felt was important to us. To have such freedom, we had to suppress or overcome any possessiveness, any tendency to be jealous. In other words – passion. TO BE FREE – YOU CAN NOT BE PASSIONATE.’
The quote from Simone:
ANYONE can pick the challenge! Link to my page if you’d like me to read your ‘choice’.
