Nothing anybody tells you about marriage helps.

While prepping for wedding ceremonies I always find myself fond and amused by the institution of marriage.  Here are few thoughts/wedding quotes from my latest...

I love being married.  It's so great to find that one special person you want to annoy for the rest of your life.  ~Rita Rudner

What a happy and holy fashion it is that those who love one another should rest on the same pillow.  ~Nathaniel Hawthorne

Love is about expression.  For even the greatest of love without expression would die.

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.  ~Judith Viorst

A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person.  ~Mignon McLaughlin

Ephesians 4:26 says, "Do not let the sun go down while you are angry."  In other words, don't go to bed pissed off, stay up and fight.

Love is a resilient, renewable source.  Use it.  Often.

What counts in making a happy marriage is not so much how compatible you are, but how you deal with incompatibility.  ~George Levinger

You can never be happily married to another until you get a divorce from yourself.  Successful marriage demands a certain death to self.  ~Jerry McCant

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

Love is not something that you just wind up once and let it go, it’s a process of becoming.
