Whether its snoring, Sunday roasting or shoulder-providing, everyone will recognise the range of shared experiences and feelings What is a Marriage? describes.
The text reads:
What is a Marriage?
It's loving & cherishing, hopefully relishing
It's hosting & toasting & Sunday roasting
It's having & holding, the odd little scolding
It's guessing, confessing & nightly undressing
It's trying, relying, a little white lying
It's snoring, adoring, occasionally boring
It's enduring, alluring & most reassuring
It's knowing & showing, & mutually growing
It's compliment giving & always forgiving
It's sharing & caring & dressing gown wearing
It's walking, its talking & bottle uncorking
It's tender supporting & raucous cavorting
It's secret confiding & shoulder providing
It's readily praising & often amazing
It's loving, respecting & calmly accepting
Its cleaning, its mopping, its waltzing & bopping
Its needing, conceding & possibly breeding
It's playing & paying, its coping & staying
It's comfort when weeping, a warm body sleeping
It's lives interweaving & always believing
That's what makes a marriage.
