Osho On Marriage
“In my vision, marriages in the commune should be dissolved. People can live together their whole life if they want, but that is not a legal necessity.
People should be moving, having as many experiences of love as possible. They should not be possessive. Possessiveness destroys love. And they should not be possessed, because that again destroys your love.
“All human beings are worthy of being loved. There is no need to be tethered to one person for your whole life.

That is one of the reasons why all the people around the world look so bored. Why can’t they laugh like you? Why can’t they dance like you? They are chained with invisible chains: marriage, family, husband, wife, children. They are burdened with all kinds of duties, responsibilities, sacrifices. And you want them to smile and laugh and dance and rejoice? You are asking the impossible.
“Make people’s love free, make people non-possessive.
But this can happen only if in your meditation you discover your being. It is nothing to practice. I am not saying to you, “Tonight you go to some other woman just as a practice.” You will not get anything, and you may lose your wife. And in the morning you will look silly. It is not a question of practicing, it is a question of discovering your being.
“With the discovery of being follows the quality of impersonal lovingness. Then you simply love.”
