Why Marriage?

//Why Marriage?

Why Marriage?

Because to the depths of me, I long to love one person,
With all my heart, my soul, my mind, my body…

Because I need a forever friend to trust with the intimacies of me,

Who won’t hold them against me,
Who loves me when I’m unlikable,
Who sees the small child in me, and
Who looks for the divine potential of me…

Because I need to cuddle in the warmth of the night
With someone who thanks God for me,
With someone I feel blessed to hold…

Because marriage means opportunity
To grow in love in friendship…

Because marriage is a discipline
To be added to a list of achievements…

Because marriages do not fail, people fail
When they enter into marriage
Expecting another to make them whole…

Because, knowing this,
I promise myself to take full responsibility
For my spiritual, mental and physical wholeness
I create me,
I take half of the responsibility for my marriage
Together we create our marriage…

Because with this understanding
The possibilities are limitless.

Belong in Your Arms – by Deborah Bridea

I belong in your arms
Finally, I have found a place
Into which I fit perfectly, safely
And securely with no doubts
No fears, no sadness, no tears

This place is filled with happiness and laughter
Yet it is spacious enough, to allow me
The freedom to move around
To live my life and be myself
This wonderful place, which I never believed really existed
I have found finally
Inside your arms, Inside your heart, inside your love
