Women have become so highly educated... that nothing should surprise us nowadays, except happy marriages.
Quarrels often arise in marriages when the bridal gifts are excessive.
Marriages struggle because we've set our marriages up to fail by thinking that this person is going to complete me when they were never created to do that.
God, the best maker of all marriages, Combine your hearts into one.
Without my women friends, I wouldn't know anything. They've been my teachers and my mothers. My mother was a wonderful person, but she didn't give me a lot of the stuff I needed to advance myself as an adult woman. I have a really strong group of girlfriends, and we share a lot with one another - the complications of raising children, marriages, personal and physical struggles.

As a 29-year-old, the only thing that I can possibly think is that if I'm still performing at 50, it's because I'll have had disastrous marriages and I have to pay for them.
It's not that my wife doesn't allow me certain indulgences, such as threesomes on set and an occasional gratuitous blow job on a night out, but my marriage is pretty normal.
Marriages that made out of love (so-called "love-matches") have error as their father and misery (necessity) as their mother.
- What is a Socialist? - That's when all are equal and all have property in common, there are no marriages, and everyone has any religion and laws he likes best. You are not old enough to understand that yet.
The reason why so few marriages are happy is because young ladies spend their time in making nets, not in making cages.
Just as is happening in many other places in the world now, as there has been a rash of decisions in other countries, either legislative or judicial, validating same-gender marriages, I think that the time will come in Hawaii.
If more husbands and fathers would put as much energy into their marriages and families as they do their jobs, the world would change.
Adultery breathes new life into marriages which have been left for dead.
This case is not about whether marriages between same-sex couples are consistent or inconsistent with the teachings of a particular religion, whether such marriages are moral or immoral or whether they are something that should be encouraged or discouraged.... Quite simply, this case is about liberty and equality, the two cornerstones of the rights protected by the United States Constitution.

I don't think I'm an idealist. I'm a realist. And I see the progress. The progress has been remarkable. Look at the emancipation of woman in my lifetime. You're sitting here as a female. Look what's happened to the same-sex marriages. To tell somebody a man can become a woman, a woman can become a man, and a man can marry a man, they would have said, "You're crazy." But it's a reality today. So the world is changing. And you shouldn't - you know - be despairing because it's never happened before. Nothing new ever happened before.

I loved Vincent and he loved me in the abiding way most couples in good marriages love each other, that way in which every once in a while there is a longing for someone you haven't yet met. A longing that comes upon you while you are loading the dishwasher or weeding the garden or sitting in front of the television or turning out the light to go to sleep, and you don't even know what it is, this longing, and you think maybe you're in need of a vacation or maybe you are dying because the ache of it hurts so fucking much…That ache, it went away when I met Henry; it went away as if it had been a headache instead of located nowhere precisely. Its not that I wanted to fall in love with Henry, but I did just the same because you can't keep from falling in love any more than you can keep snow from falling from the sky in winter. Gravity is gravity.
