We are free to interpret and reinterpret the meaning of our lives. You can consider your first marriage, which ended in divorce, to be a "failure," or you can view it as a circumstance that caused you to grow in ways that were crucial to your future happiness.
It`s the life-long companionship that matters. It`s the living together from day to day, not the sleeping together once or twice.
In marriage being right is less important than being supportive. Remember: happy wife equals happy life.
Why should we marry? Love is the only bond my lover and I need.
I have come to the conclusion never again to think of marrying, and for this reason, I can never be satisfied with anyone who would be blockhead enough to have me.
There are a few rules I know to be true about love and marriage: If you don`t respect the other person, you`re gonna have a lot of trouble. If you don`t know how to compromise, you`re gonna have a lot of trouble. If you can`t talk openly about what goes on between you, you`re gonna have a lot of trouble. And if you don`t have a common set of values in life, you`re gonna have a lot of trouble. Your values must be alike.
Marriage is the chance to put away the trappings of a single life and concentrate on making one good thing work really well.
It is better not to be married than to be married unhappily. Women do not need to be married to have rich, fulfilled lives.
I never knew what happiness was until I married your mother. And by then it was too late.
Men marry because they are tired; women, because they are curious: both are disappointed.
A marriage is the most private thing in the world. Only the people in it know if it works for them or doesn`t.
You can measure the happiness of a marriage by the number of scars that each partner carries on their tongues, earned from years of biting back angry words.
