Provoking Poetry | What Makes Marriage

Marriage often gets painted in a picture too perfect for the beholder. We expect perfection. Flawlessness with no sign of effort.

And this simply cannot be.

We struggle to fix the flaws within ourselves, yet sometimes jump immediately to our partner’s errors, ready to point each one out.

Marriage isn’t the act of perfection.

It isn’t about romance.

But it is about the personal intimacy, patience, and kindness we show each other.

That’s how we get through the hard days.

That’s how we grow as couple, not apart.

“And this is marriage, this is love.”

Together, Ludwig Lewisohn

~T. R. Noble
