The jokes are endless. They usually come from one who has learned to laugh at his mistakes, but they also can reveal a lot of pain:

  • Marriage is a gamble. You start with a pair. He shows a diamond. She shows a heart. Her father has a spade. There’s usually a joker around somewhere, but after a while he becomes a king, and she becomes a queen. Then they end up with a full house.Marriage-Crisis
  • One woman said to another, “Aren’t you wearing your wedding ring on the wrong finger?” the other replied, “Yes, I married the wrong guy.”
  • Man is incomplete until he is married. Then he is really finished.
  • Marriage is an institution in which a man loses his bachelor’s degree, and the woman gets her master’s.
    One man said, “I never knew what real happiness was until I got married; and then it was too late.

The failures will continue until God fills our marriages … the two really become one … the one fulfills the other… love is given fully and freely … giving is more important than getting … one considers the other more important than self, and selfishness retreats in defeat … each keeps his/her promises, and vows are not just words repeated after the preacher but are lifelong commitments … kindness rules the days, and helpfulness fills the moments … sex is love … and being together is love … and being apart is love … and arguments are loving … and monotony is love … and routine is love… ’til there is not “you and me,” but only “US.”

“… (man) shall Cleave Unto his Wife: and they Shall be One flesh”Genesis 2:24
