As you begin your marriage, here are a few words to encourage you:
Remember being a bride and groom is only for a day but being a husband and wife is a lifetime commitment. Let your love be stronger than your anger. Learn the wisdom of compromise, for it is better to bend than to break. A marriage without compromise is guaranteed conflict.
Believe the best of your beloved rather than the worst. Confide in your partner and ask for help when you need it. Remember that true friendship is the basis for any lasting Relationship. Give your spouse the same courtesies and kindness you bestow On your friends.
Don’t forget to say these three important words every day
“I love you” every day!
May life grant you patience, tolerance, and understanding.
