Have a Hundred Years of Harmony

For every marriage, this phrase would be used when congratulating the newly weds, “百年好合”. Just four words and it signifies a long lasting marriage wish. Although, I’m not quite sure how a couple can actually have a hundred year marriage. Now, that’s beside the point. This phrase is used in conjunction with the following sentence.



Wishing you newly weds happiness and a blissful marriage for the years to come.

In a romantic way, I guess it comes after the need to spend the rest of the life with someone. Obviously after bedding someone (in the olden times), you have to marry the girl or she will have a tarnished reputation. These days, it’s scary to see those images all over and the scandals that come from behind the scenes. Shudders.
