What is a Marriage?



What is a Marriage?



The joining of forces;

A partnership;

Equal standing in the corporation

Of life and love.


Writers pooling ideas,

Scientists testing theories,

Two people sharing.


Marriage is not the contract

Or the piece of paper;

Marriage is two people who love each other.


And when their souls mesh,

Intertwined and inseparable

The piece of paper

Codifies their love

And shouts to the world –


We love each other

And will ‘til eternity!
