Native American Couple with Passion and Love

Apache Marriage Blessing

Native American Couple with Passion and LoveNow you will feel no rain, for each of you will be the shelter for each other. Now you will feel no cold, for
each of you will be the warmth for the other. Now you are two persons, but there is only one life before. Go
now to your dwelling place to enter into the days of your life together. And may your days be good and long
upon the earth.

Treat yourselves and each other with respect, and remind yourselves often of what brought you together.
Give the highest priority to the tenderness, gentleness and kindness that your connection deserves. When
frustration, difficulty and fear assail your relationship – as they threaten all relationships at one time or
another – remember to focus on what is right between you, not only the part which seems wrong. In this
way, you can ride out the storms when clouds hide the face of the sun in your lives – remembering that
even if you lose sight of it for a moment, the sun is still there. And if each of you takes responsibility for
the quality of your life together, it will be marked by abundance and delight.
