What is a marriage?... A marriage is a place that moves with you wherever you go, it’s a path you walk along together, it’s a sunset you could sit and watch forever.
A marriage is rolling up your sleeves, its planting seeds, it’s cleaning up the mess, it’s putting the children to bed, it’s closing the door after a long hard day at work. A marriage is a smile, a touch on the arm, a bath run, a joke that softens the edges.
More than that, a marriage is a place of beauty, of memories made, of excitement yet to come, and of enjoying every single moment of it, here, now and forever.
