In Soul of the Beast, John and Mick call each other mates. What does that mean?
Being mates means you are more than friends. You are brothers and sisters who will never desert each other and would die for each other if necessary.
How do people become mates? By going through extreme situations with other persons. For men that can be fighting side by side in wars and battles. Men and women become mates when they go through the challenges of married life together. These include disease, money struggles, aging, and the raising and sometimes death of children.
Any comments? I’d like to hear them. You can post them below.
