Sample Reading:

“….Happiness in Marriage is not something that just happens…A good marriage must be created. ….
It is never being too old to hold hands.
It is remembering to say I love you, once a day.
It is never going to sleep angry.
It is forming a circle of love that gathers in the whole family.

The courtship should not end with the honeymoon, but continue through all the years.
It is doing things for each other, not in the attitude of duty or sacrifice, but in the spirit of joy.
It is the speaking of words of appreciation and demonstrating gratitude in thoughtful ways.
It is not looking for perfection in each other.

It is cultivating flexibility, patience, and understanding and a sense of humor.
It is having the capacity to forgive and forget.
It is finding room for the things of the spirit.
It is a common search for the good and the beautiful.
It is not marrying the right partner it is being the right partner.”
