St Valentine strikes again
Post by Rona Goold
Whether you received a special message today or not, isn't it great to have a day to acknowledge the value of love and friendship in our lives?
My husband and I will be married 20 years this year, so he did need the prompting of the local radio talk show to remind him that today is a special day :-)
He and I are not ones for big gifts and flowers, so a small hand written note beside my breakfast cuppa was just the right gesture.
As well as his words to his "mon couer adore" - we assume the French heart is male - but perhaps not!
- does this matter? - his little hand drawn heart and arrow touches my heart.
For those who may miss out on an overt gesture - the Celebrants & Celebrations Network Australia wishes you all the very best for today.
For those who maybe receive a proposal of marriage today - remember that Australia has one of the longest lead times in the world. Couples must give a month's Notice of Intended Marriage to the celebrant they choose. A sort of "cooling off period as Marriage is perhaps one of the most important legal contracts one signs in one's life. This covers not just inheritance and custody rights of children, but also property rights including the family home if you have one.

Or perhaps it's time for a renewal of vows or a commitment ceremony?
