If marriage could be expressed in a picture, I think this is the honest to goodness way most of us would like to see it. A beautiful, young, perfectly dressed couple, in the prime of life, running from a rose filled church to a get away car that will drive away to the land of happily ever after.
However, if I am correct, I think it more accurately would look like a picture of the same young couple, each in his and her own small boat, traveling down a river held together only by the grasp of their hands.
No control of the outside world, no control of the current.
Just held together by the strength of their commitment to
never let go.
