The phrase, "finding or in search of "your other half"" or "your better half" in terms of relationships. Where did this phrase originate from? Did it originate from the Christian view of marriage? Or Aristophanes view of love from Platos Symposium? Or something else? Does anyone have another idea of the origin?
