I read an article the other day that was broken into 5 parts and examined soul mates from different angles. I will present each angle on different days, add my own perspective on things and request your view points as well

Soul mates are matches made in heaven.
According to Yale Chaplain Rabbi James Ponet, traditional (Judeo-Christian) ideas about soul mates are summed up in this 2nd Century story:

A wealthy Roman matron says to a rabbinic sage, “Since your Creator God made the universe in seven days, what’s he been doing since?” The Sage replied, “He's been making couples.” The Roman woman says, “I can do that!” She proceeds to command one hundred slaves to be coupled off and sends them to a great dwelling. After one night, the place is in shambles; the couples have fought and degenerated into chaos. In defeat and shame, she goes back to the Sage and says, “Oh, that’s no minor thing that your God does.”

And that’s why it is common to believe that marriages are made in heaven. In Hebrew the word is B’shert–roughly translated as “beloved” or “The One.” This is where the basic idea of soul mates originates.

People are very unique, we all have our beliefs and faiths, but one thing is for sure and will remain constant, it is our personality, not our outword appearance that determines compatibilty.
