This But Not That: Marriage

It’s day four of Ethical ELAs Open Write and I’m joining in guided today by Susan Ahlbrand. Today we are inspired to consider an abstract word to define through a series of IS or IS NOTs. Susan included a list of abstract nouns to get us started and the word marriage popped out at me.

Marriage is not
a 50/50 proposition
Marriage is
giving your whole 100%

Marriage is not
saying you’re sorry
Marriage is
being able
to ask for
and receive forgiveness

Marriage is not simply
two people in love
Marriage is
a reflection
of God’s love
with his light guiding
every action

Marriage does not
end at death
Marriage does
continue on
until reunited
in heavenly bliss
