A license plate was seen recently with these numbers and letters stamped into the metal:
2R1-4EVR.

It immediately reveals that the driver is taking his or her marriage vows seriously.

The numbers and letters on the plate are a reflection of Jesus words: “A man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one … So they are no longer two, but one …. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.” (Matthew 19:5-6, NRSV).

As we approach the new year can you affirm your intention to keep your marriage intact and healthy? Forever?

What if couples worked more caringly to keep their marriages alive? How about a frequent and sincere “I love you”? A caring touch? Creative activities in which to engage as a couple? What if we were more thoughtful and kind to one another? Affirming our loved one? Remember, the commitment is: 2R1-4EVR!
