If you know your lover only in private, your knowledge is incomplete. For your lover is not only a private person. No person is only private in nature, essentially private. Each person's identity is in part defined by public behavior and public identity. Each person's identity is in part defined by familial behavior. To fully know your lover you need to know the various aspects of your lover's life. If any aspect of that life which is central to it is unknown to you, your knowledge is incomplete. Incomplete knowledge may be the result of just not getting around to learning that which might be known. There is limited time. Attention may wisely have been directed elsewhere. On the other hand, incomplete knowledge may be the result of some blockage which prevents learning about some aspect of your lover's life. If the blockage is firm, and the aspect of your lover's life which is thereby blocked is an essential aspect, then tension is very likely to be present. The tension originates in the need to know, being opposed by the blockage. If the blockage is accidental and readily removable, then the tension may be relieved relatively easily. If the blockage is of a rather tenacious sort, then the tension may be long-lived and undermine the fulfillment of the relationship between you and your lover. It is difficult for lovers to have purely private relationships and therein find fulfillment. If lovers' relationships are purely private, they cannot get to know each other in social contexts, and therefore full knowledge of each other is blocked. Social intolerance of lovers' presence within their home settings can block their full knowledge of each other. Knowing your lover is a social, as well as a private affair. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
