Making Marriage Work

Marriage is HARD WORK! But there are those who have struggled and come through just fine, because they finally figured out how to work together as one.

And The Two Become One

It has certainly been a journey
Full of struggles, full of pain
We never thought there would be sunshine
After so many seasons of rain
It looked as though we would not last
Our differences seemed so great
Neither one of us understanding
What it took to be a mate
But yet we stand together now
In a better place today
Having finally learned the lesson
It must be done God’s way
For it is only through His love for us
That we can love each other
And be a husband and a wife
A father and a mother
So though our trials were many
We can finally see the sun
Moving forward, man and woman
And the two become one

Siva, it does indeed take two hands to clap. Nothing can work unless two walk together in unity; one-sided relationships never end well.
