It’s about saving the best of yourself to give to your spouse, and expecting the best of your spouse in return.
It’s about the freedom to share hurts in confidence and the ability to help each other to heal.
It's about prayer. And faith. And love.
It’s about presenting a united front to the world, regardless of private struggles.
It’s about saying “This is my Beloved. S/he is everything that is good for me. I chose her/him, and always will.”
