Good relationships don’t just happen. They take time, patience, and two people who truly want to be together.

Marriage does not guarantee you will be together forever, it’s only paper. It takes love, respect, trust, understanding, friendship and faith in your relationship to make it last.

Alberto P. Casing
Husbands and wives, you've promised before man and God, "'Til death do us part!" Continue to love and live every moment of your marriage according to that promise.

Matthew Henry
Eve was not taken out of Adam’s head to top him, neither out of his feet to be trampled on by him, but out of his side to be equal with him, under his arm to be protected by him, and near his heart to be loved by him. 

Wayne Mack
It often happens that when couples get their relationship to God straightened out, their relationships with one another begin to straighten out as well.

Noah Calhoun
The best love is the kind that awakens the soul and makes us reach for more, that plants a fire in our heats and brings peace to our minds.

Mark Twain
Loves seems the swiftest, but it is the slowest of all growths. No man or woman really knows what perfect love is until they have been married a quarter of a century. 

Ogden Nash
To keep your marriage brimming, With love in the loving cup, Whenever you're wrong admit it; Whenever you're right shut up.

Sam Keen
You come to love not by finding the perfect person, but by seeing an imperfect person perfectly.

Ruth Bell Graham
A happy marriage is the union of two good forgivers.  

Judith Viorst
One advantage of marriage is that, when you fall out of love with him or he falls out of love with you, it keeps you together until you fall in again.

H. L. Mencken
No matter how happily a woman may be married, it always pleases her to discover that there is a nice man who wishes she were not.

Friedrich Nietzsche
It is not a lack of love, but a lack of friendship that makes unhappy marriages.

Fawn Weaver
Marriage: Love is the reason. Lifelong friendship is the gift. Kindness is the cause. Til’ death do us part is the length.

Michel de Montaigne
A good marriage would be between a blind wife and a deaf husband. 

Franz Schubert
Happy is the man who finds a true friend, and far happier is he who finds that true friend in his wife.

Finnish Proverb
Love is a flower which turns into fruit at marriage. 

Honore de Balzac
A good husband is never the first to go to sleep at night or the last to awake in the morning.

Mignon McLaughlin
Love requires a willingness to die; marriage, a willingness to live.

Josh McDowell
The greatest thing a father can do for his children is to love their mother. And the greatest thing a mother can do for her children is to love their father.   

John Lennon
There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create.

Sydney Smith
Marriage resembles a pair of shears, so joined that they cannot be separated; often moving in opposite directions, yet always punishing anyone who comes between them. 

James E. Faust
In the enriching of marriage, the big things are the little things. There must be constant appreciation for each other and thoughtful demonstration of gratitude. A couple must encourage and help each other grow. Marriage is a joint quest for the good, the beautiful, and the divine.

Paul Sweeney
A wedding anniversary is the celebration of love, trust, partnership, tolerance and tenacity.  The order varies for any given year.

John Piper
Husbands and wives, recognize that in marriage you have become one flesh. If you live for your private pleasure at the expense of your spouse, you are living against yourself and destroying your joy. But if you devote yourself with all your heart to the holy joy of your spouse, you will also be living for your joy and making a marriage after the image of Christ and His church.

Katherine Walden
The proof that you love someone is not that you have warm affectionate feelings toward them. The proof is in your actions, your words and your sacrifice, your willingness to give the best of yourself and your willingness to get nothing in return. 

Harry Buis
Unfaithfulness in the key relationships of life is a common failure for many people in contemporary society. This lack leads to so much misery. We who trust Christ must not allow the world to squeeze us into its mould. What wonderful blessings flow from faithfulness in keeping our vows. Examine your life. Is it characterized by faithfulness? God is faithful. He keeps his promises to us. Keep your promises to God and to those with whom you have entered into covenant.
