‘From this day forward…’ are words intoned in every conventional marriage ceremony as two people interweave their lives with all its plans, its hopes and dreams on a love-strewn path to the future, even eternity. From here life has its own way of changing, modifying and disrupting the true course of married love for many of us. In this volume of fifty poems our classic poets delve with storied verse into every facet of this institution. From the good, the bad and even the ugly, from the Wedding day to the realisation that divorce and separation maybe the better path. Between these two frontiers other avenues and facets are explored by the pens of many including Shakespeare, Khalil Gibran, Emily Dickinson and the Rossetti’s.
