This brand new marriage poem comes in the form of a job advert for a husband or wife, skills, salary, hours, pension all described!

Our funny and joyful marriage print makes the perfect gift for weddings and anniversaries. It is also suitable as a wedding poem or reading and for a marriage proposal!

The poem is actually a 14 line sonnet. It was written by Bespoke Verse poet (and Oxford graduate!) Joanna Miller, whose wedding poems have featured in magazines such as 'Wedding Ideas' and 'Brides'. In 2013 she won the Wedding Industry Experts award for 'Best Wedding Writer.'

Whether it's the salary of kisses or the lifetime contract, everyone will recognise the role of a husband or wife that the 'The Marriage Advert' describes.

The text reads:

The Marriage Advert

Seeking eager partner to establish winning team

A unique opportunity with proven pension scheme

The major skills required are: patience and affection

Not necessary for this role: a good sense of direction.

A diplomat would be preferred, as would a willing host,

A loyal and committed type could flourish in this post.The salary is kisses and the bonus is negotiable

The hours are extensive for the candidate who’s sociable.

Advantage will be given to applicants with passion

Who demonstrate affinity with sports events or fashion.

The live-in nature of this post is surely an attraction

Just one of many benefits which may bring satisfaction.

Please apply at altar steps, dress code: formal, new

And sign the lifetime contract with the simple words: I do.
