So Be It
This is something I read on Reader's Digest, I hope they're not going to come after me for this. I've already created the group I Love Reader's Digest!
When I asked a friend the secret to his 52 years of marriage, he replied, "We never go to sleep angry."
"That's a great philosophy," I noted.
"Yes. And the longest we've been awake so far is five days."
Marriage Secrets - Don Bolden
It is crazy I know, how I keep my belief in marriage through the stories of these people but that's how it is.
A lot of people have lost their faith in marriage, a lot see disappointment, a lot of people downright hate the idea of it but I do believe in marriage, still do. If that makes me old fashioned, naive or anything you want to call me, so be it.
I think it is right to make a promise in front of an entity both of you believe to be the higher being, to take care of each other and be with each other for as long as you walk this earth because of love.
Doing it in front of beloved ones is a great thing to do, too, in that we ask them to help us, against outer threats or ones that come from ourselves.
