For my sister and brother-in-law

Marriage is the daily commitment
You make to each other
To navigate this life together.
It’s a conscious choice
You will continue to make.
Your job isn’t to complete the other,
It’s to complement each other.
You bring your own unique perspectives
Into this relationship.
You won’t always agree.
The goal isn’t to be right
It’s understanding each other
To communicate with openness and honesty
It takes vulnerability and compromise
To build a solid partnership.
You may not always like each other,
But you should always love one another
And remember why you chose to
Live life together.
