Marriage is

Marriage is not an anachronism
  Marriage is a bond

Marriage is not a calypso
  It is a marathon

Marriage is not a gentle breeze
  Nor is it pristine
    Marriage is a choppy sea
      Above a wounded submarine

Marriage is not a pretty toy
  Nor is it a fancy poodle
    Marriage is frozen TV dinners
      Topped off with mystery noodles

Marriage is not just "I Love You"
  Nor is it eternal romance
    Marriage is a power outage
       Sweaty T-shirt, crawling pants  

Yet for all the wonderful things that marriage isn't  
   And all the horrible things it is  
     I wouldn't have it any other way
       ~ One towel Hers, the other His

    This piece sums up marriage in all its aspects - the good, the bad, and the ugly - in a wonderful poetic fashion with a lovely dash of good humor! Love it! Have a great weekend! Best regards. Pandita

    A heart warming story that carries a message of marriage mixed with love, compassion and understanding. This poem flows well and carries its message straight to the heart. Emile.

    Glad you've come back, Gershon Wolf! I have been married for so many years that I can not say for sure what marriage is ... it's something between riddles and noodles, eternal romance and comments

    ...and both are usually wet after her shower:) Very funny, Gershon. I think I'll keep my independence for now.

    Nice poem depicting the nitty gritty every day side of marriage, Gershon. It is so much more than romance. It is a commitment for the long haul. I enjoyed the write, Gershon!
