You’re Telling Us Letters
Every marriage is different No love is the same Some take it seriously To others a game.
Some promise to obey Be a dutiful wife Whether happy or not A marriage for life.
Some come in as equals Discuss every plan Not one person in charge Neither woman nor man.
Some start with a friendship And bloom into love Some start with a bang And end with a shove.
None of these things Has the power to sway What yours means to you In its own unique way.
When two capable adults Our sisters, our brothers Find the one true person Who stands out from the others.
The one who defines what they want for their life A lover, a partner, a husband, a wife.
It shouldn’t matter at all Whether one sex or two When the feelings are real And the commitment is true.
My marriage is special My commitment is strong To deny this to others Feels terribly wrong.
