(An epithalamium)

The rings were the same, plain gold bands.
She said she would and she did
to the best of her ability. There were problems,
times when life was a sucker punch, when she
wondered if she really did. Or was that just
enough to get by--enough to buy the dream
along with two matching wedding bands.

I think it's more than enough, Judy. You have caught the wonderful, sometimes challenging spirit of marriage.

The rings are never as important as the commitment. Your words are gold.

Yes Judy--commitment are the true rings of gold. Excellent writing.
