Blessed are the husband and wife who continue to be considerate and affectionate long after the wedding bells have ceased ringing.

Blessed are those mates who never criticize or speak loudly to one another and who instead quietly discuss their disagreements and work toward solutions.

Blessed are they who thank God for their food and who set aside some time each day to read the bible and pray.

Blessed are they who love their mates more than any other person in the world and who joyfully fulfill their marriage vow in a lifetime of fidelity and mutual helpfulness to one another.
