The Rules of Engagement
"Don't walk in front of me, I may not follow; don't walk behind me,
I may not lead; walk beside me, and be my friend."
- Albert Camus
I Think every marriage ceremony should include the above words. Neither person in a healthy relationship should be the leader, and neither person should be the follower- the two individuals should be equals. The should make decisions together-though not all the time, of course. It is healthy to have outlets that are all your individuality. Just make sure you have enough in common to preserve your bond as well.
TODAY I WILL CHERISH MY SOUL MATE, AND I WILL GIVE HIM OR HER THE NECESSARY SPACE TO BE THEIR OWN PERSON.
