Recipe For A Happy Marriage

Poet: Author Unknown


Take plenty of Patience,
Blend smoothly with Love;
Fold enough Humor
To season above.

And stir in some Praise;
Add Kindness and

Mix warmly together
With Trust, Faith, and Cheer;
Makes one Happy Marriage
That mellows each year.

4 lb. of love.
1 lb butter of youth.
1/2 lb of good looks.
l lb sweet temper.
1 lb of blindness for faults.
1 lb of self forgetfulness.
l lb of pounded wit.
l lb of good humor.
2 tbsp of sweet argument.
1 pint of rippling laughter.
1 wine glass of common sense.
1 oz. modesty.

Put the love, good looks and sweet temper into a well furnished house.
Beat the butter of youth to a cream, and mix well together with the blindness of faults.
Stir the pounded wit and good humour into the sweet argument,
then add the rippling laughter and common sense.
Work the whole together until everything is well mixed, and bake gently forever.



While the Art of Marriage was not written as a recipe, as you read Mr. Peterson's thoughts you will see it does contain ingredients for a successful marriage!

The Art of Marriage
Poet: Wildred Peterson


Happiness in marriage is not something that just happens.
A good marriage must be created.
In the Art of Marriage, the little things are the big things…

It is never being too old to hold hands.
It is remembering to say “I love you" at least once a day.
It is never going to sleep angry.
It is at no time taking the other for granted; the courtship should not end with the honeymoon, it should continue through all the years.
It is having a mutual sense of values and common objectives.
It is standing together facing the crowd.
It is forming a circle of love that gathers in the whole family.

It is doing things for each other, not in the attitude of duty or sacrifice, but in the spirit of joy.
It is speaking words of appreciation and demonstrating gratitude in thoughtful ways.
It is not looking for perfection in each other.
It is cultivating flexibility, patience, understanding and a sense of humor.

It is having the capacity to forgive and forget.
It is giving each other an atmosphere in which each can grow.
It is finding room for the things of the spirit.
It is a common search for the good and the beautiful.
It is establishing a relationship in which the independence is equal, dependence is mutual and the obligation is reciprocal.

It is not only marrying the right partner, it is being the right partner.
It is discovering what marriage can be, at its best.
