A beautiful marriage is built up on true love.


True love does not depend on the condition of appearances, but it depends on the inner being of the person. Appearances will be changed by time but the beauty of the inner being is not changed, because it is who he is.


Marriage is a relationship for a life time, therefore before we get married we must ask ourselves if we have true love for each other.


If you can say yes, you are ready to move into the new world…
