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