The Art of Marriage- Wilfred A Peterson

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

It is never being too old to hold hands

It is remembering to say "I love you" at least once a day

It is never going to sleep angry

It is at no time taking the other for granted

The courtship should not end with the honeymoon,

It should continue through the years.

It is having a mutual sense of values and common objectives

It is standing together facing the world

It is forming a circle of love that gathers in the whole family

It is doing things for each other, not in the attitude of duty or sacrifice,

But in the spirit of joy.

It is speaking words of appreciation and demonstrating gratitude in thoughtful ways

It is not expecting your partner to wear a halo

Or to have the wings of an angel

It is not looking for perfection in each other.

It is cultivating flexibility, patience, understanding and a sense of humour

It is having the capacity to forgive and forget

It is giving each other an atmosphere in which each can grow

It is finding room for things of the spirit

It is a common search for the good and the beautiful

It is establishing a relationship in which the independence is equal

Dependence is mutual and the obligation reciprocal

It is not only marrying the right partner

It is being the right partner.

It is descovering what marriage can be, at best.
