My brother has asked for some assistance with translating a phrase for a wedding band. I've viewed the archives regarding the use of the word love in phrases for wedding bands. Specifically he and his fiance want to use "our love forever." I think this would translate to "Ár Ngrá Go Deo." I would appreciate if someone could correct or confirm this.

Go raibh míle maith agaibh!

The only correction I would offer would be

Ár nGrá Go Deo

If you are going to begin each word with Caps, that is. The "n" is an eclipsis (Urú) and is not typically capitalized. The root word would be capitalized, instead.

Other than that small point I think you're right on track.

Le meas,

James

I second that.

Ár nGrá go Deo.
