A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person. – Mignon McLaughlin
It is not a lack of love, but a lack of friendship that makes unhappy marriages.- Friedrich Nietzsche
When people get married because they think it’s a long-time love affair, they’ll be divorced very soon, because all love affairs end in disappointment. But marriage is a recognition of a spiritual identity. – Joseph Campbell
The real act of marriage takes place in the heart, not in the ballroom or church or synagogue. It’s a choice you make – not just on your wedding day, but over and over again – and that choice is reflected in the way you treat your husband or wife. Chains do not hold a marriage together.
If you wait until you’re 23 to commit, you’re less likely to get divorced.
