When one finds a worthy wife, her value is far beyond pearls. Her husband entrusting his heart to her, has an unfailing prize.
So they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, no human being must separate.
Mark 10 2-16
I may be able to speak the languages of human beings and even of angels, but if I have no love, my speech is no more than a noisy gong or a clanging bell. I may have the gift of inspired preaching; I may have all knowledge and understand all secrets; I may have the faith needed to move mountains-but if I have no love, I am nothing. I may give away everything I have, and even give up my body to be burned but if I have no love, this does me no good.
1 Corinthians, 13:1-13
Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work: If one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up! Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone? The one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves.
A happy marriage is a long conversation which always seems too short.
When marrying, ask yourself this question: Do you believe that you will be able to converse well with this person into your old age? Everything else in marriage is transitory.
The married are those who have taken the terrible risk of intimacy and, having taken it, know life without intimacy to be impossible.
A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, and always with the same person.
Marriage is the school of love.
When men and women are able to respect and accept their differences then love has a chance to blossom.
