Older couples give young people some advices:
If your are falling in love, you have butterflies in your stomach,
if you want to fly to the moon for him or her, if you think
your partner is perfect, then don’t marry him.
Don’t marry yet. Because its not enough.
Marry if you don’t want to fly to the moon again.
If you don’t want “to be together” anymore.
Marry, if you can talk about
how hard its sometimes for you to be with him or her,
you can laugh then, be still there, talk with each other,
laugh, and still be at his or her side.
When the extraordinary becomes routine,
but then you start to make routine a little bit extraordinary.
If you understand that it is no price which you won,
but a present, for what you need to take care of.
If you are comfortable with the future planning,
where both of your dreams fit together.
If you understand, that to forgive and to ask for forgiveness is more important
than to be right.
If you accept his past without judging.
If you see your present as a present and the future as a chance to make the other one happy.
If you know you can be without the other one,
but you still want to live together.
Because love is patient, kind.
It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered,
it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails.
