The Beginning Of "Happy Ever After" Begins And Ends With Us

Getting married is not just signing a contract, it's a covenant and demands you to say "I will"daily

My daughter got married on Saturday. Everyone she loved was gathered at the church for the ceremony. We listened to the exchange of the wedding vows and admired the wedding rings. The message was clear: Marriage is more than a contract, it is a covenant shared between two willing souls. We don't marry to win or to get our way and be happy. We get married because we want to love, serve and grow with another person, and we know doing these actions will afford us the ultimate happiness.

Marriage is not easy. It is more than saying, "I do." It is willingness, an "I will," which we partake of every day. Instead of saying, "I do" to your spouse, make the commitment to say, "I will." I will love, forgive and grow with you no matter what happens to our health, our finances or our situation. My daughter and now son-in-law are responsible for creating their happily ever after in their hearts each day. Congratulations to them and to all of you who have taken the vow of "I will." –Mary Jo Rapini 

My Question for you is, why do you think the majority of people get married today? Is it to find a partner to live and share with, or is it more about finding someone to take care of you?
