Do you believe in one love of your life?

Is there really only one love of your life?
is there really such a thing as finding 'the one'?
Is there really just one special, magical, perfect soul mate? Or do we perhaps get a few kicks at the old soul mate can?

    Aug 3 2013: I like Deepak Behl's answer.

    I believe that my first wife was my soul mate. We had so much in common that it was as if we had known each other for many years. I lost her to an accident three and a half years after we were married. The fact that her death was foreseen by my roommate four years before I met her left me to wondering what we don't know about life.

    I never stopped believing in love and will be celebrating my 25th wedding anniversary with my second wife. Although we have less in common than I would like, I am committed to her by what Deepak refers to as spiritual love. I put God first and my own desires second. It hasn't failed me yet.
