Never Marry Someone You Love

It’s quite simple, dear
To live life with cheer
Here is what you must do:
Never marry someone you love
Marry someone who loves you.

Does it seem insane?
Well, it’ll save you pain
And make you happier too
Never marry someone you love
Marry someone who loves you.

Is it hard to see
How this should be
Mama’s commandment true?
Never marry someone you love
Marry someone who loves you

If you love him to death
If he’s your life’s breath
He’ll take advantage of you
So, never marry someone you love
Marry someone who loves you

This bit of advice
Comes at a great price
But it rings with words so true
Never marry someone you love
Marry someone who loves you

He’ll give you his best
Forget all the rest
Each day love’s pledges make new
Never ever marry someone you love
Marry someone who loves you...

Marry someone who loves you!

    Good morning, thanks for the good wishes and prayers. The event went well, I sold 60 copies so it was a very good day.

    If you follow this advice in the end he will be the one who is hurt. I married the one I love and so did she now together we are happy as can be, love has truly set us free yet still we are ourselves her her and me me. I enjoyed this thought provoking piece. I hope your daughter holds out for her perfect love.

    Thinking of you..... said a few prayers for you for your special day. I don't know about love, Richard. She had to find her own way. I hope she'll be happy. Thanks for the visit. All dolled up for the ceremonies. I feel better. Remember I'm celebrating with you in heart.

    Is the TV Show "Castle" a good example of what you are talking about? I know sometimes females tend to fight the feeling, yet the way they treat you says "I Love You." - JH

    Never seen the show so I wouldn't know. But yes...we find it hard to hide what we feel. Thanks for taking the time to read. :)

    Very smartly said young lady....the secret is just don't let him know you love him as much as you do. Hahaha enjoyed it, made me smile, for someone who's been married 36 years altogether hard to do!

    Let him know and he will learn how to express his feelings in return.

    Hi, Donna. I've been married for twenty. This is advice I give my daughter...constantly. She's a tough cookie and not a softie like Mama. I'm sure she'll be fine! Hugs

    Interesting concept Eileen, I remember my mother saying those same words to me when I was very young, I believe it's even better when it is reciprocated. Then things are really steamy, SMILE< xxx

    I agree, we should not settle or in the end we will regret our choice regardless of how much the other person loves us. We will feel obligated and trapped while all the while longing for more.

    Of course, my dear! That IS the ideal, but life isn't always ideal, is it? Hugs!
