  1. A Marriage Like Yours
    We all have expectations of what a marriage should be,
    Full of surprises, not tied down, but still feeling free.
    No need for any emotional disguises,
    Marriages come in many different sizes.

    We use our eyes and ears to view,
    Other people who make do.
    But the marriages we love to see,
    Are those who always seem to agree.

    They may not think the same at all,
    They hardly ever need to brawl.
    The important part of them you see,
    Is they agree to disagree.

    They understand each others point of view,
    Support and walk in one anthers shoe.
    They know being different is okay,
    No matter what awaits the day.

    They never try to be something their not,
    And changing each other is not even a thought.
    Being married does not change who you are,
    Its adds to your life like a shinny star.

  2. Advice For A Marriage
    Love and support is what we all need,
    For a marriage to succeed.
    We never want to smother the light,
    Or make our marriage bleed.

    We need to remember what's important,
    And wisely pick our battles.
    Marriage is a fragile thing,
    That if pushed could break and rattle.

    Be the person you would like to have,
    on the other side.
    You canít expect to get what you want,
    If you act worse than your husband or bride.

    If change is what you want to see,
    You need to talk it through.
    Open communication had to be,
    To see each others point of view.

    You are my husband, you are my wife
    My feet shall run because of you

    My mind thinks because of you
    And I shall love, because of you.

  9. Every wedding says the proverb,
    makes another, soon or late.
    Never yet was marriage entered
    In the heavenly book of fate
    But what the names were also written

    Whose will be the next occasion
    For the flowers, the feast, the wine?
    Thine, perchance, fairest maiden,
    Or, who knows it may be mine.

    And each time we celebrate our anniversary,

  12. Marriage Bells
    Music and silver chimes and sunlit air,
    Freighted with the scent of honeyed orange-flower;
    Glad, friendly festal faces everywhere.
    She, rapt from all in this unearthly hour,
    With cloudlike, cast-back veil and faint-flushed cheek,
    In bridal beauty moves as in a trance
    Alone with him, an fears to breathe, to speak,
    Lest the rare, subtle spell dissolve perchance.
    But he upon that floral head looks down,
    Noting the misty eyes, the grave sweet brow--
    Doubts if her bliss be perfect as his own,
    And dedicates anew with inward vow
    His soul unto her service, to repay
    Richly the sacrifice she yields this day.
    Emma Lazarus (1849-1887)

  13. A Marriage
    We met
    under a shower
    of bird-notes.
    Fifty years passed,
    love's moment
    in a world in
    servitude to time.
    She was young;
    I kissed with my eyes
    closed and opened
    them on her wrinkles.
    `Come,' said death,
    choosing her as his
    partner for
    the last dance, And she,
    who in life
    had done everything
    with a bird's grace,
    opened her bill now
    for the shedding
    of one sigh no
    heavier than a feather.
    R. S. Thomas (1913-2000)

  14. Epithalamium: A Marriage Poem
    'Twas summer, when softly the breezes were blowing,
    And Hudson majestic so sweetly was flowing,
    The groves rang with music & accents of pleasure
    And nature in rapture beat time to the measure,
    When Helen and Jonas, so true and so loving,
    Along the green lawn were seen arm in arm moving,
    Sweet daffodils, violets and roses spontaneous
    Wherever they wandered sprang up instantaneous.
    The ascent the lovers at length were seen climbing
    Whose summit is grac'd by the temple of Hymen:
    The genius presiding no sooner perceived them
    But, spreading his pinions, he flew to receive them;
    With kindest of greetings pronounced them well come
    While hollidays clangor rang loud to the welkin.
    Major Henry Livingston, Jr.

  15. From This Day Forward
    From this day forward,
    You shall not walk alone.
    My heart will be your shelter,
    And my arms will be your home.

  16. To Be One With Each Other
    What greater thing is there for two human souls than to feel that they are joined together to strengthen each other in all labour, to minister to each other in all sorrow, to share with each other in all gladness, to be one with each other in the silent unspoken memories?
    George Eliot (1819-1880)

  17. The Art Of A Good Marriage
    Happiness in marriage is not something that just happens.
    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 at no time taking the other for granted; the courtship should not end with the honeymoon, it should continue through the years. It is having a mutual sense of values and common objectives. It is standing together facing the world. It is forming a circle of love that gathers the whole family.
    It is doing things for each other, not in the attitude of duty or sacrifice, but in the spirit of joy. It is speaking words of appreciation and demonstrating gratitude in thoughtful ways.
    It is not looking for perfection in each other. It is cultivating flexibility, patience, understanding and a sense of humour.
    It is having the capacity to forgive and forget. It is giving each other an atmosphere in which each can grow old. It is a common search for the good and the beautiful. It is establishing a relationship in which the independence is equal, dependence is mutual and the obligation is reciprocal. It is not only marrying the right partner; it is being the right partner.

    Wilferd Arlan Peterson (1900-1995)

    Marriage Vows

  18. On Marriage
    Then Almitra spoke again and said, "And what of Marriage, master?" And he answered saying: You were born together, and together you shall be forevermore. You shall be together when white wings of death scatter your days. Aye, you shall be together even in the silent memory of God. But let there be spaces in your togetherness, And let winds of the heavens dance between you. Love one another but make not a bond of love: Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls. Fill each other's cup but drink not from one cup. Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf. Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone, Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music. Give your hearts, but not into each other's keeping. For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts. And stand together, yet not too near together: For the pillars of the temple stand apart, And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other's shadow.
    Kahlil Gibran (1883-1931)

  19. Why Marriage?
    Because to the depths of me, I long to love one person,
    With all my heart, my soul, my mind, my body...
    Because I need a forever friend to trust with the intimacies of me,
    Who won't hold them against me,
    Who loves me when I'm unlikable,
    Who sees the small child in me, and
    Who looks for the divine potential of me...
    Because I need to cuddle in the warmth of the night
    With someone who thanks God for me,
    With someone I feel blessed to hold...
    Because marriage means opportunity
    To grow in love in friendship...
    Because marriage is a discipline
    To be added to a list of achievements...
    Because marriages do not fail, people fail
    When they enter into marriage
    Expecting another to make them whole...
    Because, knowing this,
    I promise myself to take full responsibility
    For my spiritual, mental and physical wholeness
    I create me, I take half of the responsibility for my marriage
    Together we create our marriage...
    Because of this understanding
    The possibilities are limitless.
