Another version says it's hard to say 'I'm sorry' or 'Please forgive me' so placing a rose in a designated spot in your home is a sign to your loved one that you want to reolve the issue because your love matters most of all.

Tree Planting

Ideal if including children from a previous marriage.  Each person puts in their scoop of soil representing the fact that like the tree, you're setting down roots as a family, and just like the tree, a marriage must be nurtured in order to grow.
