A Lifetime of Marriage Is What Matters Most

Last Saturday, a wedding took place in the temporary shelter communities in Dujiangyan, central Sichuan province, which has been home many who lost their homes during the May 12 earthquake.

The China Daily reports:
It was a simple wedding. No brilliant wedding lights. No dazzling music band. No big wedding banquet. A small wooden makeshift podium was set up and decorated with flowers for the wedding ceremony on open ground.
It's a touching reminder that at its core, a wedding is about love and commitment. And no matter where we get married or what small things go wrong, we'll still be married in the end. And ultimately, a lifetime of marriage is what matters most.

I love this story!

This reminds me of a story I've been meaning to write about, regarding an uncle of mine who recently got married in a hardware store. They decided that they wanted to get married, tracked the local preacher down to the hardware where he happened to be working, and got married on the spot. After they got married, they picked up a part for their car. :)

I love stories of weddings like this one and my uncle's which have nothing to do with the material aspects of a wedding and everything to do with creating a marriage. Thanks for sharing!

When we got married it was at the courthouse. It meant everything to us. That was 14 years ago, two movies and a teenager.
