A Love Letter to My Son on His Wedding Day

August 29, 2021
Joe and Kate, September, 2019

My son, Joe, got married yesterday. My son is happy. My son is in love with his beautiful Kate. My son understands the mantra “Happy wife, happy life,” and I expect that he will be… happy… more often than not… if he sticks to this thinking… he works at it… and the gods are kind. I am filled with love for him at the thought of his his marriage, so today I share with you (and Joe) some beautiful words of wisdom and scenes of love for those imparting on this journey called marriage… or relationship… or partnership… that I find inspiring and profound. I hope that you enjoy them whether you are just starting out in a relationship, you’ve been in one for ages, you’ve lost one or your love has left you behind, albeit temporarily for a place in the sky. I love you, Beau Beau. Happy wedding day… happy married life. Mom

Words and Scenes… of Love… For All the Lovers Out There…

“ I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate then when I fall asleep your eyes close.”

Pablo Neruda, 100 Love Sonnets

“I am nothing special, of this I am sure. I am a common man with common thoughts and I’ve led a common life. There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten, but I’ve loved another with all my heart and soul, and to me, this has always been enough.”

Nicholas Sparks, The Notebook

 “We’re all a little weird. And life is a little weird. And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall into mutually satisfying weirdness–and call it love–true love.”

Robert Fulghum, True Love

“Happy is the man who finds a true friend, and far happier is he who finds that true friend in his wife.”

Franz Schubert

“A happy marriage is a long conversation which always seems too short.”

Andre Maurois
