Marriage Is



Marriage is a union of vows
When to people claim their desire
To become partners for life
Some people use it for ah ha
Now I got you
Then happiness turns to strife
So before we begin this journey
Let's take the time to search our hearts
And be sure our love is ready
For
Richer -or- poorer
Through sickness -and -health
And
Until -death -do us part!
