“ MARRIAGE – it’s just a piece of paper”

I heard this statement again the other day and once again, it got me thinking.

Is what l do, marrying people, all for a page of A4?
And if not, what is Marriage?

Public Recognition
Marriage: the legally or formally recognized union of two people as partners in a relationship. (thanks Google dictionary) 

Commitment means staying loyal to what you said you were going to do long after the mood you said it in has left you. Weddings are a celebration of that commitment and the memories of that day can be a lasting reminder.
An Awesome Reason for a Party
Bad things happen in our world and most families complain that the only time they ever see each other is at funerals. Why not celebrate something positive?
Love, commitment and devotion!

Marriage is just a piece of paper, but so is a cheque for $1 million dollars or a winning lottery ticket .
They all are only worth the value that YOU give them.
I value marriage – l see it as choice l made and a choice l continue to make every day. Not everyone puts the same value on the marriage “piece of paper’ but as Virginia Woolf once said 

“Though we see the same world, we see it through different eyes” 

What Does Marriage Mean to You?
