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 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 all the years

It is having a mutual sense of values and common objectives;  it is facing the world together

It is forming a circle of love that gathers in 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 expecting the husband to wear a halo or the wife to have the wings of an angel

It is not looking for perfection in each other

It is cultivating flexibility, patience, understanding and a sense of humor

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 the common search for the good and the beautiful

It is the establishing of a relationship in which the independence is equal, the dependence is mutual

     and the obligation is reciprocal

And finally, it is not only marrying the right partner, it is being the right partner
