    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!

                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 doesn’t brood over the past.
                It’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 don’t have it,
                no matter what else there is,
                it is not enough,
                so search for it, ask God for it,
                and share it!
                ~A & C

                  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
                  ~A & C
