the royal we

In a word...awesome!
Even the Vicars were doing cartwheels of joy after this amazing event.

"Most people get married believing a myth -
that marriage is a beautiful box,
full of the things they have longed for:
companionship, sexual fulfillment, intimacy and friendship.
The truth is, marriage at the start, is an empty box.
You must put something in before you can take anything out.
There is no love in marriage; love is in people.
There is no romance in marriage; people have to infuse it into their marriages.
A couple must learn the art and form the habit of
giving, loving, serving, praising - keeping the box full.
If you take out more than you put in, the box will be empty. "
- J Allen Petersen

I know there was a lot of pomp and ceremony yesterday, but what shone through all of it for me was the love between a boy and a girl; a boy and girl who have their feet placed firmly on sensible ground.
And hats off to them!
