Marriage is an Athenic weaving together of families, of two souls with their individual fates and destinies, of time and eternity–everyday life married to the timeless mysteries of the soul.
When you make a sacrifice in marriage, you’re sacrificing not to each other but to unity in a relationship.
Marriage–a book of which the first chapter is written in poetry and the remaining chapters written in prose.
Married couples who love each other tell each other a thousand things without talking.
There is no more lovely, friendly and charming relationship, communion or company that a good marriage.
A good marriage is that in which each appoints the other guardian of his solitude.
Rainer Maria Rilke
Marriage is not a simple love affair, it’s an ordeal, and the ordeal is the sacrifice of ego to a relationship in which two have become one.
Love seems the swiftest, but it is the slowest of all growths. No man or woman really knows what perfect love is until they have been married a quarter of a century.
