Why Be Married? Because Love Matters

Paul McCartney married Nancy Shevel yesterday. It's got me singing All You Need is Love again today, one of the world's (and the Beatles') most touching songs.

"All you need is love. All you need is love, love. Love is all you need."

And what do we need it for? To become our best selves.

"Nothing you can do but you can learn how to be you in time. It's easy."

"Nowhere you can be that isn't where you're meant to be. It's easy."

"All you need is love."

If you are lucky enough to have a husband or wife today, look past your differences. Look past your unmet needs. Look for the love you are offered in an act of service, a small gift, an affirming word, time shared with you, or a gentle touch (thanks for the list, Gary Chapman).

Now amplify it in your heart. Send it back to the source and out into the world.

Congratulations, Paul and Nancy! May you bring all your experience with love to this marriage and enjoy the rest of your lives together in harmony.
