The Greatest Inspirational
Grow old along with me.
The best is yet to be.
It is a lovely thing
to have a husband and wife developing together
and having the feeling of falling in love again.
That is what marriage really means:
helping one another to reach the full status of being persons,
responsible and autonomous beings who do not run away from life.
After all these years,
I see that I was mistaken about Eve in the beginning;
it is better to live outside the Garden with her
than inside it without her.
Marrying for love may be a bit risky,
but it is so honest that God can't help but smile on it.
It is not a lack of love,
but a lack of friendship that makes unhappy marriages.
Two souls with but a single thought,
Two hearts that beat as one.
More marriages might survive
if the partners realized that
sometimes the better comes after the worse.
Sometimes it was worth all the disadvantages of marriage
just to have that one friend in an indifferent world.
The best friend will probably acquire the best wife,
because a good marriage is founded on the talent for friendship.
A great marriage is not when the 'perfect couple' come together.
It is when an imperfect couple learns to enjoy their differences.
The kind of marriage you make depends upon the kind of person you are.
If you are a happy, well-adjusted person,
the chances are your marriage will be a happy one.
If you have made adjustments so far
with more satisfaction than distress,
you are likely to make your marriage and family adjustments satisfactorily.
If you are discontented and bitter about your lot in life,
you will have to change before you can expect to live happily ever after.
-Evelyn Duvall and Reuben Hill
Union gives strength.
The people we are in relationship with
are always a mirror, reflecting our own beliefs,
and simultaneously we are mirrors, reflecting their beliefs.
So... relationship is one of the most powerful tools for growth....
If we look honestly at our relationships,
we can see so much about how we have created them.
