Soul Mates?

One of my favorite movies is "Serendipity."

You know, the 2001 flick that stars John Cusack and Kate Beckinsale.  Okay, if you don't, below is a clip.

The movie centers around the concept that all of life is fated...that destiny is real and that certain people, against all odds, were meant to be together.

So, the other day, I was talking to a girlfriend about soul mates...whether we believed in them...whether people randomly connected and chose to make lives with one another....whether you could essentially be happy with a myriad of partners over the course of your life...or whether there was just one person that you were truly intended to (throughout all of eternity) share your soul with.

Heady, silly, probably pointless banter, I know...but an interesting philosophical conundrum.  Especially when you factor in all of the crazy circumstances like becoming a widow, getting a divorce, or stumbling upon another.

The jury is still out for me.  I guess I just love the desperation and sweetness of John Cusack and of course, the beauty and namesake of Kate Beckinsale.
