Haven't read the other replies, and realize this is an old thread.
Almost to our 24th wedding anniversary, I like the idea of pondering marriage and what it has been for us thus far.
It has been a great great thing for us. That said, it might not be for everyone.
It has allowed us to experience levels of love we had no idea exist.
My husband recently tried to describe it thus-
"I love you more than I did when we married.... it is a love more...round... more full... more complete."

One thing I heard recently and that struck me as true in our case is that "marriage is a long path of falling in and out of love."
We go through ups and downs, we feel more or less amorous at different times, we get caught up in our responsibilities at times, then turn our
attention back to our relationship again, wooing and seducing each other all over again.
We help each other change and transform as we each want to, we change guards periodically in terms of power and as each feels a need to rest and be
powerless for a while, the other steps up and leads for a while. We trust each other enough to be able to do that.
I recommend it, if you are wiling to nurture and care for the relationship. If not, then don't bother.
