What Is Marriage?


Marriage is a Holy covenant,
Not a piece of paper handed to you by the state.

Ah, life!

Warm, beautiful commitments,
With God and each other.

Love, love, and faith!

Ooh, never ending!
Courage, endurance, and faith.
Endurance is a new discovery, every day.

Not always happy happy happy.

Where are the lively children?
Let us have 11 children, ha! ha!

Adventure, never ending.

Cry!

Making up is so much fun, like a rough family.

Pledges fly high!

Tears laugh like beautiful children grown.

Faith, forever, not even in death will we part...

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

The finger-points look through like rosy blooms:
Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
