Here is an old Irish saying about love, which underscores that love is for life.
It goes like this…
“A day lasts until it’s chased away,
but love lasts until the grave.”
This is the English translation of an old Irish language proverb…
“Maireann lá go ruaig
ach maireann an grá go huaigh.”
Here’s a sound file which you can play to listen to the pronunciation of this Irish language saying….
Here’s the phrase, spelled out phonetically to help with pronunciation…
“Mar-in law guh roo-ig
Ock mar-in on graw guh hoo-ig.”
Our Irish ancestors left us with many wise old words to guide us through life, and to advise on happiness in love and marriage.
