A LIFETIME OF MARRIAGE…

4694

You fall ‘in love’ with each other and you think that’s the key for getting married.. Well! that’s the way it should be.

But You’ll need more than love to get through the stormy weather of marriage.

You can’t build a house by tearing it down; You can’t keep a spouse by wearing a frown.

Whoever you marry, there are better and worse side of them — So just take the advice that’s contained in this verse.

Some days will bring heartache, others distress; But you can’t simply “wash your hands” of the mess.

Marriage requires that when things go awry. You give the relationship “just one more” try.

Stick it out, suck it up, make one more new start;

A lifetime of living involves more than your heart.

Every day of your life, you must start anew,

Putting aside all you’ve had to go through,

Until comes a day when you look back at the life you spent together as husband and wife,

Knowing your marriage grew strong through the years.

You endured all that heartache, anger and tears and knowing the goal was well worth the pain

And that you’d be willing to do it again.
