Marriage is a thousand little things.It’s giving up your right to be right in the heat of an argument. It’s forgiving another when they let you down. It’s loving someone enough to step down so they can shine. It’s friendship. It’s being a cheerleader and trusted confidant. It’s a place of forgiveness that welcomes one home, and arms they can run to in the midst of a storm. It’s grace.It’s giving of yourself tirelessly down paths you’d never imagine to travel. Through sickness and pain, poverty and loss, it’s carrying the weight of another. It’s being the smile they see in the morning, and the body they hold close at night. It’s pure love. It’s standing together in the face of adversity. It’s riding alongside each other in a battle that threatens to tear down your marriage and seeks to grab hold of your faith. It’s strength under pressure. It’s endless compassion. It’s love.
A marriage doesn't need to be perfect; it just needs to be United.
An extraordinary marriage is not one without conflict. It is one where honesty, respect, and forgiveness set the tone for resolution.
Don't marry a man who doesn't love his mother and a woman who hasn't been a good daughter.
Marriage is a wonderful institution that allows two human beings to go through difficulties together that they would never have had if they hadn't married.
The greatest marriages are built on teamwork. A mutual respect, a healthy dose of admiration, and a never-ending portion of love and grace.
