Funny, But Serious, Too

* Marriage isn't a word-it's a sentence!

* Marriage is a gamble. You start with a pair. He shows a diamond. She shows a heart.  Her father has a spade. There's usually a joker around somewhere, but after a while he becomes a king, and she becomes a queen. Then they end up with a full house.

* One woman said to another, "Aren't you wearing your wedding ring on the wrong finger?" The other replied, "Yes, I married the wrong man. "

* Man is incomplete until he is married. Then he is really finished.

Marriage is an institution in which a man loses his bachelor's degree, and the woman gets her master's.

One man said, "I never knew what real happiness was until I got married; and then it was too late."

The jokes are endless. They usually come from one who has learned to laugh at his mistakes, but they also can reveal a lot of pain. The failures will continue until God fills our marriages ... the two really become one .... the one fulfills the other ... love is given fully and freely ... giving is more important than getting ... one considers the other more important than self, and selfishness retreats in defeat .... each keeps his/her promises, and vows are not just words repeated after the preacher but are lifelong commitments ... kindness rules the days, and helpfulness fills the moments... sex is love ... and being together is love ... and being apart is love ... and arguments are loving ... and monotony is love ... and routine is love...'til there is not "you and me," but only "US."
