Marry When....

This is a poem about superstitions connected with the months and days of marrying from a book dated 1892. It was pasted in probably from a newspaper. I thought you might like it. So here it is.

Marry when the year is new,
Always loving, kind, and true.
When February birds do mate,
You may wed, nor dread your fate.
If you wed when March winds blow,
Joy and sorrow both you'll know.
Marry in April when you can,
Joy for maiden and for man.
Marry in the month of May,
You will surely rue the day.
Marry when June roses blow,
Over land and sea you'll go.
They who in July do wed,
Must labor for their daily bread.
Whoever wed in August be
Many changes are sure to see.
Marry in September's shine,
Your living will be rich and fine.
If in October you do marry,
Love will come, but riches tarry.
If you wed in Bleak November,
Only joy will come, remember.
When December's snows fall fast,
Marry and true love will last.

(Now I know what month
I shall want to marry in!)

We cannot mark the time for love<br />
With things like months or years,<br />
This gift is sent from far above<br />
An we will know when it appears<br />
<br />
Love and marriage differ so,<br />
And while marriage does unite<br />
Love's a feeling that we just know,<br />
So when you find it, hold on tight<br />
<br />
Marriage may not last that long,<br />
A day, a week, a year<br />
But love is such a special song<br />
That plays forever, dear<br />
<br />
So when you find it, hold on fast<br />
And never, let it slip away,<br />
While marriage may nor always last,<br />
True love will - come what may<br />
<br />

Well, I am getting divorced after 40 years. Things always change, and so do people. We may not be in love anymore, but I will love her forever, and I think she, me. Only with deep introspection did I come to my decision. I will never know if it was right, but then again, we never do. All that we can do is to make the decision that seems right now - tomorrow never knows!

All that we can do know is move forward with our lives. I can understand why you burn your bridges. Though we all have different ways, anything that helps us go forward is the right choice today. I cannot hate my wife anymore, I feel sorry for her and the choices that she made, but I have learned to accept her, and all people for who they are.I do not have to like these people, but acceptance makes things easier - for me! I think that I am on the right path these days, but there are so many paths, and we all must follow our own...
