There are only so many words in English language I could have used as the topic for this. You'll see & hopefully understand why I chose these ones as you read on.
"Two are better than one, because they have a good [more satisfying] reward for their labor; For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up! Again, if two lie down together, then they have warmth; but how can one be warm alone? And though a man might prevail against him who is alone, two will withstand him. A threefold cord is not quickly broken." (Amplified)I agree with Simone Signoret that "Chains do not hold a marriage together. It is threads, hundreds of tiny threads which sew people together through the years."
So you see there is a link between sewing and staying married - just teasing... However, the truth (using a sewing saying), is that a stitch in time saves nine - especially in marriage.
"They say it takes a village to raise a child. That may be the case, but the truth is that
it takes a lot of solid, stable marriages to create a village." ~ Diane Sollee
Cultivate a maintenance culture and we'll have a much more stable world for our children.
