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!
