Most people get married believing a myth that marriage is a beautiful box full of all the things they have longed for: companionship, intimacy, friendship, etc. The truth is that marriage at the start is an empty box. You must put something in before you can take anything out. There is no love in marriage. Love is in people. And people put love in marriage. There is no romance in marriage. You have to infuse it into  your marriage. A couple must learn that the art and form the habit of giving, loving, serving, praising keeping the box full. If you take out more than you put in, the box will be empty. - Unknown

One was never married, and that's his hell; another is, and that's his plague. - Robert Burton

There is no such thing as a solid marriage. Marriage is more like an airplane than a rock.

Only you and your partner know how hard it has been, or how worthwhile. - Unknown

Those who enter into marriage, must be fully prepared to establish their marriage, as the first priority in their lives. - James E. Faust
