Am I taking care of the ones I love?

The 19th century poet Elizabeth Barrett Browning expressed it eloquently…
How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Being and ideal Grace….

A wedding is a celebration of endless life and love. Traditionally, brides often think about the details of that special day: the ring, the cake, the party, the bouquet, who will sit next to each other at the reception, do we know how to dance to our favorite music. The Groom thinks about how beautiful his fiancé will be, how proud his parents are, how lucky they are to have found each other.

But sometimes, after the honeymoon is over, other words invade our thoughts – how will we take care of each other? Will we have our white picket fence? What happens if my promotion doesn’t come through? As the relationship grows and children enter the picture, the pressure of added responsibility can be overwhelming.

Our wedding vows are often a personal declaration of words about the lifetime we are planning together. There is overwhelming joy at having family and friends gathered to rejoice in the moment. Even more beautiful than a wedding is the marriage that follows.

…. I love thee to the level of everyday’s
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
I love thee freely, as men strive for Right;
I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise.

Part of that everyday life together will require patience, and a new level of thoughtfulness. Often, people don’t think about what will happen 30 years from now when they first get married. Their instincts are to protect each other. But how? One way is to think of the whole picture. Enjoy the celebration, enjoy the long journey and be prepared to share your lives together for many years. By investing in insurance, a little at a time, you can be sure that many years from now, you will still be proving your love to each other. It takes time to build up equity in a life insurance policy. But if you start putting aside a little at a time, you will have what you need when you need it.

…I love thee with a passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood’s faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints, — I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life! — and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.

“How do I love thee” First published in 1850 and written by poet Elizabeth Barrett Browning
