The act of uniting a man and woman in marriage is one of the oldest and most cherished of ceremonies.Marriage is respected among all persons, and is not to be entered into lightly, but with reverence for its responsibilities.Happiness in a marriage is not something that just happens. A good marriage must be created and nurtured every day.In the art of marriage it’s  the little things that are the are the big things.It ‘s never being too old to hold hands.Its remembering to say “I love you.” Every day It’s having a mutual sense of values and common objectives. is standing together, & doing things for each other in the spirit of giving. Speaking words of appreciation and showing gratitude in thoughtful ways.

It’s cultivating flexibility, patience, understanding and above all a sense of humor. It is having the ability to forgive and forget,  and move forward with your life’s journey together.

It is not only marrying the right partner, it’s being the right partner, both of you holding up your share of the relationship, and extending yourselves to each other.

 There have been many stories explaining the breaking of the glass. it serves to remind us of several very important aspects of a marriage. You  should consider these marriage vows as an irrevocable act, just as permanent and final as the breaking of this glass.The shattered glass also reminds us how fragile life and love can be. That sometimes a single thoughtless act, breach of trust, or marital misstep can damage a marriage in ways that are very difficult to undo, just as it would be difficult to repair the broken glass. It serves as a reminder of the sanctity of marriage, and that you’re love should last  as long as it would take to make the glass perfectly whole again. It also symbolizes the transforming experience that marriage creates, leaving the bride and groom forever changed.
