Happiness in marriage is not something that just happens.
A good marriage must be created.
In the art of marriage the little things are the big things...
the courtship should not end with the honeymoon,
it should continue through all the years.
It is standing together facing the world.
of duty or sacrifice, but in the spirit of joy.
and demonstrating gratitude in thoughtful ways.
It is cultivating flexibility, patience,
understanding and a sense of humor.
It is a common search for the good and the beautiful.
dependence is mutual and the obligation is reciprocal.
