The more connections you and your lover make, not just between your bodies, but between your minds, your hearts, and your souls, the more you will strengthen the fabric of your relationship, and the more real moments you will experience together. Angelis, Barbara De
Perhaps separation with semicolons would have enhanced understanding, such as: "The more connections you and your lover make, not just between your bodies, but between your: minds; hearts; and souls, the more you will strengthen your relationship, and the more real moments you will experience together".
I think the commas are there just to set the mood or to make each statement stronger, so you pause when you read it and think about it more rather than just reading it all in one breath.
This author has the order wrong. The commitment of heart comes first. The physical part of a relationship always comes last because it isn't the most significant part of a relationship. I didn't say it isn't significant, I just said it isn't the most significant. Our society has this all messed up because many people think they can start there and have the rest of the areas develope normally after that. That is exactly "bass ackwards". The author is correct in the fact that all facets of people need to be incorporated, they just need to be done properly. The sex part comes after the commitment to a relationship has been made by marriage.
I can correct the quote if you can send me a reference on the web to the correct version. If any of you find anything that points to the correct version on google books, etc. please post it here.
