It is an unquestionable fact that in most developed societies the institution of marriage is no longer as popular as it once was.
So, is there still a place for romantic marriage poems?
Life Daily believes that there is, so we set our researchers the task of locating some of the best short poems for you to browse.
Edvard Westermarck once defined marriage as “a more or less durable connection between male and female lasting beyond the mere act of propagation till after the birth of the offspring.”
Considering that in the U.S. close to 50 percent of all marriages end in divorce, it is reasonable to ask the question ” why get married if the chances of the union being successful are only 50/50?”
There is no logical answer – but there is an explanation offered by none other than the Bard of Avon, William Shakespeare: “…..But love is blind, and lovers cannot see what petty follies they themselves commit.”
Blind or not, ” Love Conquers all” as the ancient Roman poet, Virgil, so aptly wrote.
And, since it does, there is still a purpose in the following romantic marriage poems:
1. A short wedding poem to congratulate your friends:
I wish your love be just as endless
As the rings you grant and wear,
A circle of real happiness
For both of you to share!
2. Marriage verses to new family:
The day of your marriage, it’s true
So shiny and fine,
With all best friends beside you
To have a good time.
We wish you showers of love
Starting your lives as one,
And happiness shared together
May reign your lives forever!
3. Cute congratulations poetry to newlyweds:
