One thing and only one thing will unfailingly and alone secure the undoubted triumph of this sacred Cause, namely, the extent to which our own inner life and private character mirror forth in their manifold aspects the splendour of those eternal principles proclaimed by Bahá'u'lláh.

Blessed is he who mingleth with all men in a spirit of utmost kindliness and love. ~Baha'u'llah

The question you raise as to the place in one's life that a deep bond of love with someone we meet other than our husband or wife can have is easily defined in view of the teachings.  Chastity implies both before and after marriage an unsullied, chaste sex life.  Before marriage absolutely chaste, after marriage absolutely faithful to one's chosen companion.  Faithful in all sexual acts, faithful in word and in deed.


Shoghi Effendi, 28 September 1941, "Lights of Guidance," p. 361
