okay, so my FH's brother got married last weekend. His wife and I aren't exactly great friends. We talk and hang out when necessary. and thats about it. She is a very hard person to have a conversation with and is very selfish and rude. But anyways.......before I go off on a tangent about her I will get to the point. At her wedding last weekend she had the poem, The Art of Marriage as a reading. I have been planning on using this as a reading for a few years now! What do I do? I don't want the same one as she had! Does anyone know of any poems that are similar to this one? with the same message?
The Art of Marriage
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 sleep angry.
It is having a mutual sense of values and common objectives.
It is forming a circle of love 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 the beautiful.
It is not only marrying the right partner...
It is being the right partner.
