Ahead of them is a long happy life, which they will lead in great love and fidelity, despite all the difficulties and enemies that they will meet. He will certainly become a strong wall for her, and the girl will be the keeper of the hearth. The symbol of the eternal love of young people is the image of two white swans in the lake.
