We would like to have a close friend do a reading at during our ceremony. We want it to be something people can relate to and at the same time it is easy to read. We are looking for some beautiful readings! Do you know of any good ones?!

The Art of a Good Marriage, by Wilferd Arian Peterson
Happiness in a marriage is not something that just happens. A good marriage must be created.
In marriage the little things are the big things. It is never being too old to hold hands.
It is remembering to say "I love you" at least once a day.
It is never going to sleep angry. It is at no time taking the other for granted;
the courtship should not end with the honeymoon, it should continue through the years.
It is having a mutual sense of values and common objectives. It is standing together facing the world. It is forming a circle of love that gathers the whole family.
It is doing things for each other, no in the attitude of duty or sacrifice, but in the spirit of joy.
It is speaking words of appreciation and demonstrating gratitude in thoughtful ways.
It is not looking for perfection in each other.
It is cultivating flexibility, patience, understanding and a sense of humor.
It is having the capacity to forgive and forget. It is giving each other an atmosphere in which each can grow old. It is a common search for the good and the beautiful.
It is establishing a relationship in which the independence is equal, dependence is mutual and the obligation in reciprocal. It is not only marrying the right partner,
it is being the right partner.
