Marriage is a solemn commitment to one another that we should not take lightly. There is generally lots of excitement in the first year when the couple is learning about one another. They get to enjoy time together, hopefully, before the children come. With the birth of children comes the opportunity for both of them to take on shared responsibilities in being parents. Their children later leave home to go to work or go to college, leaving them alone again in their relationship with one another. There is nothing more beautiful than an old couple still loving and caring for one another. They are in the sunset of their lives. The following poem reflects this kind of relationship.

WE HAVE LIVED AND LOVED TOGETHER

We have lived and loved together

Through many changing years;

We have shared each other’s gladness

And wept each other’s tears; 

I have known ne’er a sorrow

That was long unsoothed by thee;

For thy smiles can make a summer

Where darkness else would be………

We have shared each other’s gladness

And wept each other’s tears.

And let us hope the future

As the past has been will be:

I will share with thee my sorrows,

And thou thy joys with me.
