Marriage Joins Two People in the Circle of Its Love

Marriage is a commitment to life, to the best that two people can find and bring out in each other. It offers opportunities for sharing and growth that no other human relationship can equal; a joining that is promised for a lifetime. Within the circle of its love, marriage encompasses all of life’s most important relationships. A wife and a husband are each other’s best friend, confidant, lover, teacher, listener, and critic. There may come times when one partner is heartbroken or ailing, and the love of the other may resemble the tender caring of a parent for a child. Marriage deepens and enriches every facet of life. Happiness is fuller; memories are fresher; commitment is stronger; even anger is felt more strongly, and passes away more quickly. Marriage understands and forgives the mistakes life is unable to avoid. It encourages and nurtures new life, new experiences, and new ways of expressing love through the seasons of life. When two people pledge to love and care for each other in marriage, they create a spirit unique to 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, which takes a lifetime to fulfill.

  • Heartfelt

    I absolutely love this. Sept. 7th alas my 12th year anniversary, but for some reason, I couldn't figure out what to give my husband. I began reading different poems and wedding vows and ran upon this. I decided to copy it and put a beautiful background on it, frame it and give it as his gift. As I was typing it, there was a knock at my door. The police asking me to identify my husband. He had been in a motor vehicle accident and did not survive. So being that I did not get to give this to him as I had planned, I put it on the back of his obituary. Thanks for sharing this as it has truly touched my heart.
