I am looking for this writing/ statement to use at our wedding. My fiancé has had to pack up all her books and now cannot locate the writing. If you could please send we would appreciate it. Thank you so much.

Randall, perhaps this is the quote from the Baha'i Writings you were thinking of. Congratulations on your marriage, BTW. -gw

O ye two believers in God! The Lord, peerless is He, hath made woman and man to abide with each other in the closest companionship, and to be even as a single soul. They are two helpmates, two intimate friends, who should be concerned about the welfare of each other. If they live thus, they will pass through this world with perfect contentment, bliss, and peace of heart, and become the object of divine grace and favour in the Kingdom of heaven. But if they do other than this, they will live out their lives in great bitterness, longing at every moment for death, and will be shamefaced in the heavenly realm. Strive, then, to abide, heart and soul, with each other as two doves in the nest, for this is to be blessed in both worlds.
