More marriages might survive if the partners realized that sometimes the better comes after the worse.
There is no more lovely, friendly and charming relationship, communion or company than a good marriage.
There is nothing nobler or more admirable than when two people who see eye to eye keep house as man and wife, confounding their enemies and delighting their friends.
A great marriage is not when the perfect couple comes together. It is when an imperfect couple learns to enjoy their differences.
I didn't marry you because you were perfect. I didn't even marry you because I loved you. I married you because you gave me a promise. That promise made up for your faults. And the promise I gave you made up for mine. Two imperfect people got married
Sexiness wears thin after a while and beauty fades, but to be married to a man who makes you laugh every day, ah, now that's a real treat.
Chains do not hold a marriage together. It is threads, hundreds of tiny threads which sew people together through the years.
