Quote of the Day
It is not a lack of love, but a lack of friendship that makes unhappy marriages.
Many marriages would be better if the husband and the wife clearly understood that they are on the same side.
More marriages might survive if the partners realized that sometimes the better comes after the worse.
They say marriages are made in Heaven. But so is thunder and lightning.
Remember that children, marriages, and flower gardens reflect the kind of care they get.
H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
There is more of good nature than of good sense at the bottom of most marriages.
Henry David Thoreau
For some of us, watching a miniseries that lasts longer than most marriages is not easy.
There may be good, but there are no pleasant marriages.
Rainer Maria Rilke
All marriages are happy. It's the living together afterward that causes all the trouble.
Marriages don't last. When I meet a guy, the first question I ask myself is: is this the man I want my children to spend their weekends with?
Nations fight against nations, in marriages people fight against each other, children fight against each other. We are in warfare, in a national warfare, and in warfare with each other and with ourselves.
Another argument, vaguer and even less persuasive, is that gay marriage somehow does harm to heterosexual marriage. I have yet to meet anyone who can explain to me what this means. In what way would allowing same-sex partners to marry diminish the marriages of heterosexual couples?
Those Marriages generally abound most with Love and Constancy, that are preceded by a long Courtship.
All careers go up and down like friendships, like marriages, like anything else, and you can't bat a thousand all the time.
I hate to be a failure. I hate and regret the failure of my marriages. I would gladly give all my millions for just one lasting marital success.
J. Paul Getty
The tabloids, instead of being about alien babies and stuff, it's my triplets, quadruplets, marriages, feuds.
But marriage goes in waves. You've got to be patient. People bail and give up on their marriages way too early. They just don't put the work and the effort into it. You've got to suck up your ego a lot of times, because that can be a big downfall.
France may claim the happiest marriages in the world, but the happiest divorces in the world are 'made in America.'
Let us be honest with each other. The threat to marriage is not the gays. It is a lack of loving commitment - whether it is found in the form of neglect, indifference, cruelty or adultery, to name just a few manifestations of the loveless desert in which too many marriages come to grief.
Y'know, every relationship is different. There are good marriages, bad marriages, connected partners, unconnected partners.
Not every religion has to have St. Augustine's attitude to sex. Why even in our culture marriages are celebrated in a church, everyone present knows what is going to happen that night, but that doesn't prevent it being a religious ceremony.
The facts are plain: Religious leaders who preside over marriage ceremonies must and will be guided by what they believe. If they do not wish to celebrate marriages for same-sex couples, that is their right. The Supreme Court says so. And the Charter says so.
Marriages, like careers, need constant nurturing... the secret of having it all is loving it all.
I am not against hasty marriages, where a mutual flame is fanned by an adequate income.
I know all about cheating. I've had six very successful marriages.
I am skittish about relationships, as most of the marriages I've seen up close have been ruinous for one or both parties.
We live in grief for having left the womb, for having left the teat, then school, then home. In my case, it was leaving marriages, and the death of my wife.
I understand why marriages break up over golf. I can't even talk about my own handicap because it's too upsetting.
Most marriages are a mess, and the children get caught between two bitter, antagonistic parents. My parents stayed married for 27 unhappy years, till their kids were grown, and this was a catastrophe for us.
After a while in marriage, it doesn't work anymore. There is something missing, there is something wrong. There are few marriages that stay alive forever. We like something, and after a while, we hate what we used to love.
