“There is no more lovely, friendly and charming relationship, communion or company than a good marriage.” ― Martin Luther

“The best thing to hold onto in life is each other.” ― Audrey Hepburn

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

“To be loved but not known is comforting but superficial. To be known and not loved is our greatest fear. But to be fully known and truly loved is, well, a lot like being loved by God. It is what we need more than anything. It liberates us from pretense, humbles us out of our self-righteousness, and fortifies us for any difficulty life can throw at us.” ― Timothy Keller, The Meaning of Marriage: Facing the Complexities of Commitment with the Wisdom of God

“A happy marriage is about three things: memories of togetherness, forgiveness of mistakes, and a promise to never give up on each other.” —Surabhi Surendra

“The remedy for most marital stress is not in divorce. It is in repentance and forgiveness, in sincere expressions of charity and service. It is not in separation. It is in simple integrity that leads a man and a woman to square up their shoulders and meet their obligations. It is found in the Golden Rule, a time-honored principle that should first and foremost find expression in marriage.” ― Gordon B. Hinckley

“Don’t ever stop dating your wife and don’t ever stop flirting with your husband.” – Unknown

I want to be someone’s forever.”― Rachel Gibson, The Trouble With Valentine’s Day

“A good marriage is a contest of generosity.” – Diane Sawyer
