In a true marriage, man and woman think more of the partnership than they do of themselves. It is an interweaving of interests and a facing of sacrifice together for the sake of both. Feelings of security and contentment come from mutual efforts. In marriage, as in dancing, the happiness does not stem from the way the individual moves, but in the togetherness of the behavior. ~F. Alexander Magoun
In a constructive marriage, partners must regularly, routinely and predictably attend to each other and their relationship no matter how they feel. Couples sooner or later always fall out of love, and it is at the moment when the mating instinct has run its course that the opportunity for genuine love begins. It is when the spouses no longer feel like being in each other’s company always, when they would rather be elsewhere some of the time, that their love begins to be tested and will be found to be present or absent. ~M. Scott Peck, M.D. The Road Less Traveled
Healthy Marriages are not made up of people who live under the illusion of having a perfect marriage, nor do they need to be married to the perfect partner. Instead, healthy marriages consist of people who are committed to the process of growing and living together. They are dedicated to understanding and adjusting to each other. They accept the complex task of mutual adjustment. ~David Field
When a couple marries, two distinct cultures and languages come together. In fact, you are actually marrying a foreigner. Surprised? You may be! But each of you speaks a different language with different meanings to the same words. If each of you does not define your words, then assumptions and misunderstandings will occur ~ H. Norman Wright
Chains do not hold a marriage together. It is threads, hundreds of tiny threads which sew people together through the years.
That is what makes a marriage last- more than passion or even sex! ~Simone Signoret
Remember that if you marry for beauty, you bind yourself all your life for that which perchance will neither last nor please you one year; and when you have it, it will be to you of no price at all; for the desire dieth when it is attained, and the affection perisheth when it is satisfied. ~Sir Walter Raleigh
Romance is about the little things. It’s much more about the small gestures-the little ways of making daily life with your lover a bit more special- than it is about extravagant, expensive gestures. ~Gregory J.P. Godek
Each marriage is unique, and each faces its own peculiar problems. Recognize them and try to avoid them. But if they do occur-forgive. To have a successful marriage you need two forgivers. A happy marital partnership has to be dominated by love-two people seeking out ways to do what is best for the other. ~Billy Graham
