Marrige: Bond That Matures Very Slowly - - Expression of Love is Important for a Successful Married Life

“What a happy and holy fashion it is that those who love one another should rest on the same pillow.”  
                                                      (Nathaniel Hawthorne)

“Strike an average between what a woman thinks of her husband a month before she marries him and what she thinks of him a year afterward, and you will have the truth about him.”       (H.L. Mencken)

“The bonds of matrimony are like any other bonds - they mature slowly.”      
                                                 (Peter De Vries)

“I love being married.  It's so great to find that one special person you want to annoy for the rest of your life.”                                                (Rita Rudner)

“Marriage, n.  A community consisting of a master, a mistress, and two slaves, making in all two. ”                                                (Ambrose Bierce)

“Marriage is an alliance entered into by a man who can't sleep with the window shut, and a woman who can't sleep with the window open.”          (George Bernard Shaw)

“Newlyweds become old weds, and old weds are the reasons that families work.”  (Author Unknown)

“How you end something as profound and important as a marriage is a reflection of how you live your life--financially, emotionally, and spiritually”.                 (Suze Orman)

“When most people enter marriage, they have only had an "up close and personal" view of a small number of marriages, perhaps only one (i.e., their parents' marriage). Although you likely have known many married people throughout your lifetime, your vision of most marriages is limited to the images that the couples project to the world. You can never really know what another person's marriage is like behind closed doors. Therefore, most people enter into marriage with gaps in their understanding of what marriage entails.”                (Christine. Murray)

“Marriages are always moving from one season to another. Sometimes we find ourselves in winter--discouraged, detached, and dissatisfied; other times we experience springtime, with its openness, hope, and anticipation. On still other occasions we bask in the warmth of summer--comfortable, relaxed, enjoying life. And then comes fall with its uncertainty, negligence, and apprehension. The cycle repeats itself many times throughout the life of a marriage, just as the seasons repeat themselves in nature.”                                        (Gary D. Chapman)

“A good marriage is good for you. That isn't just a platitude. Mounting research shows that it is the literal truth. When your marriage is healthy, your body and mind are healthier.”             
                                                              (Cliff Isaacson)

Today I married my best friend,
Our bond complete, it hath no end,
We share one soul, we share one heart,
A perfect time - a perfect start.
With these rings we share together,
Love so close to last forever,
This special day - two special hearts,
Let nothing keep this love apart.
(Rachel Elizabeth Cooper)
