Earlier, Man Woman relationship was companionship. Let's take Adam and Eve. They were not committed. They weren't in even dependant. They weren't restricted by one another in the name of love. They were themselves. Even if they were only there, they weren't indulged in each other all the times. They weren't obsessed about body charm. They were companions. Enriching each other's life by just being aside. Like sojourn and be in own peripherals. Love is Freedom...... then companionship become heaven.
