Mark Twain once said that, “a marriage makes two fractional lives a whole. It gives to two lives a work, doubling the strength of each to perform it. It gives to two questioning natures, a reason for living. It brings a new gladness to the sunshine, a new fragrance to the flowers, new beauty to the earth,… a new mystery to life.”

Marriage involves mutual commitment and responsibility. You as a couple will share together in the responsibilities and commitments of building a home. You will share also in the joys and sorrows of life. But when companions share a sorrow; the sorrow is cut in half, and when you share a joy; the joy is doubled.
