~“A married couple is like a permanent marker… Once you are with them you can never give them up OR let them fade away…”

~“I want you, I want all of you, in my arms, twenty four seven. It’s not going to be easy, it’s going to be really hard. But I’m willing to try it, because I’m willing to spend the rest of my life with you…
- The Notebook”

In marriage, each partner is to be an encourager rather than a critic, a forgiver rather than a collector of hurts, an enabler rather than a reformer


Marriage is three parts love and seven parts forgiveness of sin- Langdon Mitchell

A good marriage is one, which allows for change and growth in the individuals and in the way they express their love- Pearl Buck

Happy marriages begin when we marry the ones we love, and they blossom when we love the ones we marry- Tom Mullen
