A Recipe for Marriage

A pinch of understanding

A tablespoon of trust

A drop of fun and flattery

And a smattering of lust.

A teaspoon of adventure

A heap of hopes and wishes

An ounce or two of thoughtfulness

And a scoop of hugs and kisses.

A grain or two of constancy

A dash of admiration

A slice of friends and family

And a cup of conversation.

A dollop of devotion

A soupcon of surprise

A bunch of boring household chores

And a spot of compromise.

A drizzling of honesty

A sprinkling of laughter

A splash of patience and support

Makes… a Happy Ever After!
