A MARRIAGE PRAYER
Bud Henry Bowen
As we begin our journey down the road of life together. We don’t know what lies ahead for the road turns and bends. But help us to make the best of whatever comes our way.
Help us to hug each other often … laugh a lot, talk more, and argue less.
Help us to continue to enjoy each other as we did when we first met.
Help us to realise that nothing or no one is perfect and to look for the good in all things and all people including ourselves.
Help us to respect each other’s likes and dislikes, opinions and beliefs, hopes and dreams and fears even though we may not always understand them.
Help us to learn from each other and to help each other to grow mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.
Help us to realise that there is design and purpose in our lives as in the world and no matter what happens to us we will hold on to each other and know that things have a way of working out for the good.
Help us to create for our children a peaceful, stable home of love as a foundation on which they can build their lives.
But most of all, help us to keep lit the torch of love that we now share in our hearts to that by our loving example we may pass on the light of love to our children and to their children and to their children’s children forever.
Wedding Tips: Stand by your Man
There is so little difference between husbands you might as well keep the first. ~Adela Rogers St. Johns
Wedding Tips: the whole is greater than the sum of its parts
Marriage: that I call the will of two to create the one who is more than those who created it. ~Friedrich Nietzsche
Wedding Tips: 25 years later
Love seems the swiftest but it is the slowest of all growths. No man or woman really knows what perfect love is until they have been married a quarter of a century. ~Mark Twain
Wedding Tips: It's the End
A man in love is incomplete until he has married. Then he's finished. ~Zsa Zsa Gabor
WHAT IS LOVE?
Love is not just looking at each other and saying `You’re wonderful’.
There are times when we are anything but wonderful.
Love is looking out in the same direction. It is linking our strength to pull a common load. It is pushing together towards the far horizons, hand in hand.
Love is knowing that when our strength falters, we can borrow the strength of someone who cares. Love is a strange awareness that our sorrows will be shared and made lighter by sharing; that joys will be enriched and multiplied by the joy of another.
Love is knowing someone else cares that we are not alone in life.
Wedding Tips: Happiness Ever After
All marriages are happy. It's the living together afterward that causes all the trouble. ~Raymond Hull

Wedding Tips: Hope eternal
I have great hopes that we shall love each other all our lives as much as if we had never married at all. ~Lord Byron
Wedding Tips: Ageless Faces
One of the good things that come of a true marriage is, that there is one face on which changes come without your seeing them; or rather there is one face which you can still see the same, through all the shadows which years have gathered upon it. ~George MacDonald
THE KEY TO LOVE
The key to love is understanding...
The ability to comprehend not only the spoken word,
but those unspoken gestures,
the little things that say so much by themselves.
The key to love is forgiveness...
to accept each others faults and pardon mistakes,
without forgetting, but with remembering
what you learn from them.
The key to love is sharing...
Facing your good fortunes as well as the bad, together;
both conquering problems, forever searching for ways
to intensify your happiness.
The key to love is giving...
without thought of return,
but with the hope of just a simple smile,
and by giving in but never giving up.
The key to love is respect...
realising that you are two separate people, with different ideas; that you don’t belong to each other,
that you belong with each other, and share a mutual bond.
The key to love is inside us all...
It takes time and patience to unlock all the ingredients that will take you to its threshold;
it is the continual learning process that demands a lot of work... but the rewards are more than worth the effort...
and that is the key to love.

Wedding Tips: Best Friends

Wedding Tips: Litany for a Wedding Ceremony
LITANY FOR A WEDDING
We take delight in our very presence here in soundness of body and mind: for our ability to make decisions and the energy to carry them out.
We remember in this precious moment all those in pain and who suffer strictures in mind or debilitation of limb. For what we have, what we are and what we may become - we are thankful.
We celebrate our common life with friends and family and all the relationships that sustain our humour and support our spirits especially in time of trouble or sadness.
We remember in this timeless moment the lonely and the unloved and those who belong to none, are answerable to none and upon whom none depend. For what we have, what we are and what we may become - we are thankful.
We cherish our work, our responsibilities and the where-with-all that sustains our life-styles: for demands made upon us which bring out the best and opportunities that enliven our imaginations.
We remember in this moment of enchantment the unloved and the purposeless and those whose talents lie undiscovered or remain wasted. For what we have, what we are and what we may become - we are thankful.
We delight on this special day in the security of our families and the protection of reliable affections: in those spaces wherein love and knowledge may mature especially for these two friends -[bride’s name] and [groom’s name].
We remember in this moment those without homes and without hope; those who, despite their efforts, have come by so little and who know anxiety too well. For what we have, what we are and what we may become - we are thankful.
We are privileged to be here in these profound moments beyond ordinary time with these two folk; may their vows rekindle our own and their life together be both a celebration and a yes to all that abides deeply and remains constant: faith, hope and that most robust and forgiving of affections: love.

Wedding Tips: Under the influence?
When two people are under the influence of the most violent, most insane, most delusive, and most transient of passions, they are required to swear that they will remain in that excited, abnormal, and exhausting condition continuously until death do them part. ~G.B. Shaw, Getting Married, 1908
Wedding Tips: No remorse
Never feel remorse for what you have thought about your wife; she has thought much worse things about you. ~Jean Rostand, Le Mariage, 1927
