Marriage is not a word. It is a sentence--a life sentence.
Marriage is very much like a violin; after the sweet music is over, the strings are attached.
A good marriage must be created.
In marriage, the little things are the big things:
Never being too old to hold hands.
Remembering to say "I love you" at least once a day.
Never going to sleep angry.
Having a mutual sense of values and common objectives.
Standing together facing the world.
Forming a circle of love that gathers in the whole family.
Speaking words of appreciation and demonstrating gratitude in thoughtful ways.
Having the capacity to forgive and forget, and then forgetting what you forgave.
Giving each other an atmosphere in which to grow.
Not only MARRYING the right person, but BEING the right partner.
However, most of these are not practiced in MARRIAGES,especially in the southern part of Nigeria(WARRI) where this SACRAMENT is now a play tool.
Men turn thier wives into punching bags,Indulge in Alcoholism,sleep around with girls and even fellow men(the most disgusting),hangout till late,make LIES thier mother tongue.
In a nutshell they violate completely,the essence of MARRIAGE.
