Two people are better than one, for they have a good return for their labor. She hears my dreams and affirms them. My fears of career failure are calmed because she is for me. He makes me laugh. I am in unity with his walk with our Lord. I can work and grow in my new home with him.
For if they fall, one will help his companion up, but pity the person who falls down and has no one to help him up. For better or worse we are together.
Furthermore if two lie down together they can keep each other warm, but how can one person keep warm by himself. It is so cold here in the place she is moving to marry me. I only want to be where he is. I hope his snuggle will keep me warm.
Although an assailant may overpower one person, two can withstand him. We walk into this marriage not knowing what we don’t know. We are totally dependent on God . I will marry only her. I will marry only him.
Moreover a three stranded cord is not quickly broken.
Lord, You are our powerful third cord. May no other power break us. Protect our marriage. Teach us. Strengthen us.
Together they say: We are an engaged couple today. Bless our tomorrow.
