    Welcome to the forum.

    Firstly, check the spelling of "correct" and "grammar" in your title.
    Secondly, look at your sentences. We do not capitalise common nouns, pronouns or verbs in English (love, happiness, etc). We sometimes capitalise every word of a title or a caption, but we don't randomly capitalise some and not others.
    Thirdly, start every sentence with a capital letter.

    Have another look at what you have written and see what amendments you can make based on my three points above.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    And while there are grammatical issues with the others, #2 is just really off. Unless they have some ritual in their wedding ceremony that involves string, do not use this.
    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.

    Maybe, in some cases, it should be "rope"

    We do say that they "tied the knot," but you really can't expand on the metaphor like this.
