What would you give up for your partner?

There’s been a lot of talk about giving up things lately with Lent having just started (we decided to give up our diets!). This got us thinking: what would you give up for your partner?

Russell Brand who got married to pop star Katy Perry last year, has revealed that he would be prepared to give up his riches for his partner.

The ‘Arthur’ actor, who had a reputation as a bad boy and lothario before marrying the songstress explained: “I would never give up love; I’d definitely give up money. Now that I’m married, I have this great love and partnership in my life that is the most important thing to me.”

Russell also admitted that he was “ready” to be tamed by Katy. The singer is currently on a world tour and according to newpaper The Sun, Katy has planted notes around the house and items of her favourite lingeries for her husband to find whilst she’s away. That’s one way of ensuring reformed ladies man Russell doesn’t stray while she’s away! Amid report that their marriage is in trouble, Katy might not have that much to worry about as Russell is apparently “discovering how lovely permanence and building an ongoing relationship can be.”

But we digress. Now that you’ve found love, what would you give up for your partner? Money, clothes, chocolate???

    “””Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.”””–1 Corinthians 13:4-8

    Prayer for hope that never fails:
    “St. Jude, glorious apostle, faithful servant and friend of Jesus, the name of the person (who betrayed our Lord) has caused you to be forgotten by many, but the true Church invokes you universally as the Patron of things despaired of. Pray for me, who is so miserable; pray for me, that I may finally receive the consolations and the succor of Heaven in all my necessities, tribulations, and sufferings, particularly (ADD YOUR PERSONAL REQUEST HERE), and that I may bless God with the Elect Throughout Eternity.”
