I heard this statement again the other day and once again, it got me thinking.
Is what l do, marrying people, all for a page of A4?
And if not, what is Marriage?
Marriage: the legally or formally recognized union of a man and a woman (or, in some jurisdictions,
two people of the same sex) as partners in a relationship. (thanks Google dictionary)
Commitment means staying loyal to what you said you were going to do long after the mood you said it in has left you. Weddings are a celebration of that commitment and the memories of that day can be a lasting reminder.
An Awesome Reason for a Party

Marriage is just a piece of paper, but so is a cheque for $1 million dollars or a winning lottery ticket .
They all are only worth the value that YOU give them.
I value marriage – l see it as choice l made and a choice l continue to make every day. Not everyone puts the same value on the marriage “piece of paper' but as Virginia Woolf once said
“Though we see the same world, we see it through different eyes”

By law it's a just piece of paper. But eventually it's more that that. It's a new phase of life for both of men and women. It's a lifetime bonding.
