a sacred covenant

It is said that good communication is necessary to build any successful relationship.  Communication and commitment certainly form the vital framework for a healthy marriage.  But effective communication goes beyond speaking and listening.  It is possible to say too much; to spew destructive words that tear a home down.  It may be possible to hear too much; to assume the worst intentions of one’s partner. Is this not why the “two will become one flesh”?  Sex is the super-glue that bonds partners, holds a marriage together.  This sacred act is designed to reconcile and unite spouses in expressing tender love, forgiveness, acceptance when words fail.  If fruitful, a couple may also be rewarded by the pleasure of children!

    A wonderful reminder that words are only one way to express ourselves in love and marriage.

    I like these sentiments, particularly as summed up in the haiku.
