Marriage

The Art of Marriage

A good marriage must be created. In the art of 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 each day.

It is never going to bed angry. It is having a mutual set of values and common objectives It is standing together facing the world.

It is forming a circle that gathers in the 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 finding room for the things of the spirit.

It is a common search for the good and beautiful.

It is not only marrying the right partner,

It is being the right partner.

--Wilfred Peterson

 

P.S. I know that's kinda long; you could use only part of it..

Mayeb this one for "Unity"?

 

When two people pledge their love and care for each other in marriage, they create a spirit unique unto themselves which binds them closer than any spoken or written words. Marriage is a promise, a potential made in the hearts of two people who love each other and takes a lifetime to fulfil.

 

Oh, and maybe "Happiness" could be another one?

Ok, so I love this stuff...

 

Another table name - Forgiveness? I know it may be too much on the "negative" side, so to speak, but it's still important in marriage! wink.gif

 

And here's another poem, author unknown:

 

Love is a friendship that has caught fire.

It is quiet understanding,

mutual confidence,

sharing and forgiving.

It is loyalty through good and bad.

It settles for less than perfection,

and makes allowances for human weakness.

Love is content with the present.

It hopes for the future and it doesnâ€t brood over the past.

Itâ€s the day-in and day-out chronicle of irritations, problems, compromises,

small disappointments, big victories, and working toward common goals.

 

If you have love in your life,

it can make up for a great many things you lack.

If you donâ€t have it,

no matter what else there is,

it is not enough,

so search for it, ask God for it,

and share it!

One more and I'll stop. Promise.

 

For "Unity":

 

A marriage...makes of two fractional

lives a whole;

it gives to two purposeless lives

a work, and doubles the strength

of each to perform it;

it gives to two

questioning natures

a reason for living,

and something to live for;

it will give a new gladness

to the sunshine,

a new fragrance to the flowers,

a new beauty to the earth,

and a new mystery to life.

-- Mark Twain

 

Also Unity:

 

God, the best maker of all marriages,

combine your hearts in one,

your realms in one.

-- Shakespeare

 

Also, you could use "Blessing" (As in, either you are a blessing to each other, or just as a blessing over your marriage.):

 

Heaven give you many, many merry days!

-- Shakespeare

 

May your joys be as bright as the morning,

your years of happiness

as numerous as the stars in the heavens,

and your troubles but shadows

that fade in the sunlight of love.

-- An Old English Blessing

 

The most precious possession

that ever comes to a man in this world

is a woman's heart.

-- J. G. Holland

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
