What is a Marriage?

It’s loving & cherishing, loyally relishing.

It’s hosting & toasting & Sunday roasting

It’s enduring, alluring & most reassuring

It’s guessing, confessing & nightly undressing.

It’s often surprising, involves compromising

It’s mending, depending, & can be heart-rending

It’s trying, relying, a little white lying

It’s snoring, adoring, occasionally boring.

It’s knowing & showing, & mutually growing

It’s packing & moving, anxiety soothing

It’s having & holding, the odd little scolding

It’s nursing, & cursing when driving (reversing.)

It’s compliment giving & always forgiving

It’s planning & booking & help with unhooking

It’s sharing & caring & dressing gown wearing

It’s walking, it’s talking & bottle uncorking.

It’s tender supporting & raucous cavorting

It’s secret confiding & shoulder providing

It’s readily praising & often amazing

It’s liking, respecting & calmly accepting.

It’s cleaning, it’s mopping, it’s waltzing & bopping

It’s needing, conceding & possibly breeding

It’s chatting, conspiring & thoughts of retiring

It’s playing & paying, it’s coping & staying.

It’s comfort when weeping, a warm body sleeping (removed for message)

It’s lives interweaving and always believing... (removed for message)

That’s what makes a marriage.
