Marriage is...

Marriage is a contract
Between two consenting adults
Joined together in law
For the benefit of their security

Marriage is love
Given unconditionally
Daily for eternity to a spouse
Asking nothing in return

Marriage is hope
Despite painful experiences before
That two people will always
Look after each other

Marriage is ....
Logically sensible
Illogically thrilling
Emotionally rewarding


Linked up at Poetry Jam who challenged us to write something logical, illogical or emotional; this poem attempts to use all three, each taking a different stanza.

Marriage can definitely be crazy at times... but oh so worth it.

This was fun to read! Yes, marriage is certainly a mix!

Mary said...

Ha, I would say there probably is a lot of illogical in any relationship; but if both are committed and compatible it can definitely be wonderful indeed.

A good marriage requires so much hard work. I failed. Knowing that makes me sad .. though I know it 'takes two' and my feelings are illogical.
Nicely done :)

It is important to marry someone you like rather than love:)

I like this very much - and we could debate it for ever, which is also good.
