It is significant to note the distinction that a wedding and a marriage are not the same. A marriage is a commitment compelled by many feelings in both of you described as love. It takes place when you both can say to one another "I love you, I want you, I need you, I want to be with you the rest of my life and in doing that I put the needs of my partner before my own ". The wedding is a formal announcement and dramatization of this bond. Family and friends are usually invited to receive the news, witness and celebrate the union. f

Love is a friendship
that has caught fire.
It is quiet understanding,
Mutual confidence,
Sharing and forgiving.
It is loyalty through 
good and bad.
It settles for less 
than perfection,
And makes allowances 
for human weakness.
Love is content 
with the present.
It hopes for the future 
And it doesn’t brood 
over the past.
It’s the day-in and day-out 
chronicle of 
irritations, problems, 
Small disappointments, 
big victories, and working toward common goals.
If you have love in your life,
It can make up for a great 
many things you lack.
If you don’t have it,
No matter what else there is,
It is not enough,
So search for it, ask God for it,
And share it!




Marriage is a sort of poetical see-saw.



All suffering, 
all fear, and all 
unfulfilled wishes 
are the result 
of negative karma, 
and all negative karma
 arises from

Sloka 54 from the DHAMAPADA

The scent of flowers 
cannot travel against 
the wind,
 nor can that
 of sandalwood 
or jasmine,
but the fragrance of 
the good
does travel against 
the wind,
and a good man and 
a good woman
perfumes the 
four quarters 
of the earth.





Thank You Rev. Billy,

No one would 
or could be as perfect as you to 'Hitch' Ann and I up!!!

Now you will feel no rain, 
for each of your will be 
shelter to the other.
Now you will feel no cold, 
for each of you will be 
warmth to the other.
Now there is no 
loneliness for you; 
for each of you will be a companion to the other.
You are two persons, 
but here is only 
one life before you.
Go now to your 
dwelling place to enter 
into your days together.
And may your days be good 
and long on the earth.



" he or she 
who is filled 
with love 
is filled 
with God "
-St. Augustine 
of Hippo


       There are two
important things 
to emphasize 
when we meditate: 
our motivation 
at the beginning 
and our dedication 
at the end.

Love is that flame

when it is kindled

burns everything away

 only God remains

Those marriages generally abound most with love and constancy that are preceded by a long courtship.

- JOSEPH ADDISON, The Spectator, Dec. 29, 1711

Love is one long sweet dream, and marriage is the alarm clock.


Marriage problems are relationship problems, they are the result of how two people interact with each other. You may abandon a troubled marriage, but you will still bring the way you interact with others along with you.


Laugh Your Way to a Better Marriage

Maybe marriages were made in heaven, but we believe in giving the old-fashioned porch-swing some credit.

                                                -  ROBERT ELLIOTT GONZALES





By the power of every moment of your goodness,
may all dangers be averted and all disease be gone.
May no obstacle come across your way.
May you enjoy fulfillment and long life.

For all in whose heart dwells respect,
who follow the wisdom and compassion, of the Way,
may your life prosper in the four blessings
of old age, beauty, happiness and strength.

A summer breeze can be very refreshing; but if we try to put it in a tin can so we can have it entirely to ourselves, the breeze will die. Our beloved is the same. He is like a breeze, a cloud, a flower. If you imprison him in a tin can, he will die. Yet many people do just that. They rob their loved one of his liberty, until he can no longer be himself. They live to satisfy themselves and use their loved one to help them fulfill that. That is not loving; it is destroying.


Teachings on Love

My new found meaning of Marriage is a place where you can be yourself and has breathing space to grow personally and spiritually as and when I want without having to consult my partner about my changes. It is a beautiful place without suffocation, a place where you can learn and teach each other, a place where you do not feel prohibited and a place where you do not have to log in and log out.

- JEANETTE DE JONK, Unconventional & Spiritual Marriage
