The greatest marriages are built on teamwork. A mutual respect, a healthy dose of admiration, and a never-ending portion of love and grace.
Marriage is a mosaic you build with your spouse. Millions of tiny moments that create your love story.
People stay married because they want to, not because the doors are locked.
A fool in love makes no sense to me. I only think you are a fool if you do not love.
Where there is love, there is life.
Once we figured out that we could not change each other, we became free to celebrate ourselves as we are.
-H. Dean Rutherford (in a letter to his wife on their 59th wedding anniversary)
A long-lasting marriage is built by two people who believe in -and live by- the solemn promise they made.
Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success.
And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make.
-John Lennon and Paul McCartney
A great marriage is not when the ‘perfect couple’ comes together. It is when an imperfect couple learns to enjoy their differences.
A great marriage isn’t something that just happens; it’s something that must be created.
Show me a man who is smiling from ear-to-ear and living a beautiful life, and I’ll show you a man who is grateful for what he has and utterly in love with his wife.
In the arithmetic of love, one plus one equals everything and two minus one equals nothing.
Love is a partnership of two unique people who bring out the very best in each other, and who know that even though they are wonderful as individuals, they are even better together.
Marriage is like watching the color of leaves in the fall; ever changing and more stunningly beautiful with each passing day.
The doors of happiness remain locked. When they are unlocked, they swing open quickly and widely but close right behind them. They must be reopened throughout each day and there is but one key that fits that lock: Gratitude.
The first to apologize is the bravest. The first to forgive is the strongest. The first to forget is the happiest.
Marriage, ultimately, is the practice of becoming passionate friends.
You meet thousands of people and none of them really touch you, and then you meet one person and your life is changed forever.
– Jamie Randall (from the movie, Love and Other Drugs)
Love is the greatest gift when given. It is the highest honor when received.
There are few things more frightening to a man than giving away his heart. And there are few things more comforting to a man than to know the woman he gave his heart to, will protect it with her life.
Love is an act of endless forgiveness, a tender look which becomes a habit.
Passionate sex is great. A passionate marriage filled with passionate sex…SO much better.
Marriage is a commitment- a decision to do, all through life, that which will express your love for one’s spouse.
-Herman H. Kieval
Enjoy the little things in life… For one day you’ll look back and realize they were the big things.
You don’t marry one person; you marry three: the person you think they are, the person they are, and the person they are going to become as a result of being married to you.
When you compromise your beliefs for the sake of gain, that is a lack of integrity. When you compromise your beliefs for the sake of greater understanding with your spouse, that’s called wisdom.
Keep the fire lit in your marriage and your life will be filled with warmth.
One day, in your search for happiness, you discover a partner by your side, and you realize that your happiness has come to help you search.
To keep your marriage brimming, with love in the wedding cup, whenever you’re wrong, admit it; whenever you’re right, shut up.
Love is always bestowed as a gift -freely, willingly, and without expectation. We don’t love to be loved, we love to love.
If you’re not happy with where you are and what you’ve got, you won’t be happy with where you go or what you get. Happiness is a choice for today.
Two persons cannot long be friends if they cannot forgive each other’s little failings. — Jean …
