The strategy proposed by Jaksh is to pre-empt the experience of disillusionment by setting up relationship expectations in a very thorough and controlled way. Then there is no confusion. Each partner knows, accepts, and hopefully performs in a way that he or she is "supposed" to perform. While it's true that there is great power in knowing exactly what you want, it's also true that love cannot be defined, contained, or imitated by the human ego. Therefore, learning to love is more a function of undoing rigid definitions and expectations rather than installing them.
