Psyche was the wife of Eros. She was worshipped for her purity but didn’t find love, nobody wanted to marry her.
Eros was told to push her into a meeting with the most negative person, but when he saw her he fell in love. They married but Eros never revealed himself to her, so she had no idea what he looked like.
One time she wakes up in a beautiful castle filled with beauty and luxury, but she’s left there alone. Psyche had two sisters and she was missing them. One day her husband Eros allowed her to invite her sisters over, when they were there they naturally started to feel jealous because of her outstanding beauty and purity. Her sisters wanted to mess with her and started to talk shit about Psyche’s husband for the fact he didn’t show himself and left her alone in a castle, that he must be ugly and vile. She got worried and went seeking for her husband at night with a candle to see for herself whether the rumors were true or not. To her surprise she discovers that Eros is the most beautiful man she had ever seen.
She fell to her knees as she felt overwhelmed with grace, but meanwhile the candlewax started to drip on Eros which awoke him from his sleep, but as there was an agreement to never see each other he than felt that their trust was shattered and broken. He said “love cannot exist without trust” and he takes off.
Psyche goes to Aphrodite for advice to get her husband back, which is the mother of Eros. But Aphrodite was the one sending out Eros to mess up Psyche’s life in the first place, so the situation was a bit odd and strange.
Aphrodite made Psyche do all sorts of tests and tasks in order to see whether she is worth it, worth her son.
Psyche did well on her tests and Aphrodite was not pleased with that, so she sent Psyche to the underworld to Persephone whom than takes some of Psyche’s beauty which she agreed upon as she wanted to do everything to get her husband back. Psyche than returned to Aphrodite but she was still not pleased as Psyche was still beautiful and told her she won’t ever see Eros again and would enslave Psyche.
The gods had seen everything happen and sent Hermes to Eros to inform him about what his mother had done to Psyche.
Eros was touched and the betrayal of trust was immediately broken. Psyche and Eros get officially married and as a wedding gift, Zeus made Psyche immortal and became a Goddess.
