The art of Marriage


The art of Marriage

A good marriage must be created
In marriage the little things are the big things

It is never being too old to hold hands

It is remembering to say
I love you
At least once a day

It is never going to sleep angry

It is having a mutual sense of values and common objectives

It is standing together facing the world

It is forming circle of love that gathers in whole family

It is speaking words of appreciation and demonstrating gratitude in thoughtful ways.

It is having the capacity to forgive and forget

It is giving each other an atmosphere in which each can grow

It is not only marrying the right person, it is being the right partner

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
