VOWS
By Taiwo O. Oluwaseye
Today the day your life begins
All your life, it has just been you
Just a smart - Mouth kid
Today you become a man
Today you become a woman
Today you become a loving husband and wife
Today you become accountable to
Someone other than yourself
Today you both become accountable to each other
To your future
To all the possibilities that your marriage has to offer
Together, no matter what happens
Be ready
For anything
For everything
To take on life, to take on love
To take on possibility and responsibility
Today you both, your life
Together begin
To love each other; even when you offend each other.
To love each other until death do you part.
Love grows by giving.
The love we give away is the only love we keep.
The only way to retain love is to give it away.
Today and forever give love away to each other.
Today the journey of your life begins.
Love is a journey,
And love is what makes that journey worthwhile.
Today love everything together.
Love endures when the lovers love many things together and not merely each other.
When love is accompanied with deep intimacy,
It raises us to the highest level of human experience.
In this exalted space, we can surrender our egos,
Become vulnerable and know levels of joy
And well-being unique among life experiences.
We attain a glimpse of the rapture become one and, at the same time, both.
A successful marriage is like an edifice that must be re-built every day.
It takes two to make marriage successful and only one to make it a failure.
To love someone is nothing,
If someone loves you is something
But if you love someone the loves you back is everything
The beautiful marriage to marry each character.
The difficulty with marriage is that we fall in love with personality
But must live with a character.
Embrace each other character.
Don't forcefully change what you don't like, but with prayer and kind words.

    Wedding vows are powerful words that we should read to remind us of the love that made our heart saga and peaceful all day long. It help to renew our love after 20, 40 or 80 years of marriage.

    The vow still made you look at each like love birds in your 20s.
