    Unhappy Wedding Invitation

    I am trying to fill out an RSVP card for my buddies wedding. They are asking all the guests to fill in the blanks of two sentences of advice for the the couple.

    In marriage, always ensure that you __________ (noun) and never__________ (verb). Remember to tell each other _______________________________ (Phrase) and never go to bed without _____________(verb).

    I am having trouble with the first line. It has been 11 or 12 years since I studied any English, but I'm not sure how a noun would work at the end of that first sentence. I've read a bunch of examples of nouns used in sentences and the definition. What am I missing here?

    A noun doesn't make sense there. You need a verb.

    I love it, though! Think what fun the best man can have at the speech if given access to those cards. It could by hysterically funny.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Thank you for the help everyone. I didn't think it made sense.

    I think it's meant to be fun, so it doesn't matter how well you understand the grammar. Go for it, and write whatever you like.
