Some people ask the secret of our long marriage. We take time to go to a restaurant two times a week. A little candlelight, dinner, soft music and dancing. She goes Tuesdays, I go Fridays.

Henny Youngman

The secret of a happy marriage remains a secret.

It is not long in historical terms since Christian priests were burning people at the stake if they did not believe that wine turns to blood when a priest prays over it, and that the earth sits immovably at the universe`s centre, or [...] since they were whipping people and slitting their noses and ears for having sex outside marriage [...]. To this day adulterers are stoned to death in certain Muslim countries; if the priests were still on top in the once-Christian world, who can say it would be different?

A. C. Grayling

There are a few rules I know to be true about love and marriage: If you don`t respect the other person, you`re gonna have a lot of trouble. If you don`t know how to compromise, you`re gonna have a lot of trouble. If you can`t talk openly about what goes on between you, you`re gonna have a lot of trouble. And if you don`t have a common set of values in life, you`re gonna have a lot of trouble. Your values must be alike.

Morrie Schwartz

All relationships fail until you find the right one. It’s inevitable. The failure of a relationship to lead to marriage does not mean you are unworthy or unattractive.

Charlaine Harris

Even the least perfect marriage has moments that are wonderful.

Charlaine Harris

The less competent a person is in a given domain, the more he will tend to overestimate his abilities. This often produces an ugly marriage of confidence and ignorance that is very difficult to correct for.

The world isn`t run by the laws written on paper. It`s run by people. Some according to laws, others not. It depends on each individual how his world will be, how he makes it. And you also need a whole lot of luck, so that somebody else doesn`t make your life hell. And it ain`t as simple as they tell you in grade school. But it is good to have strong values and to maintain them. In marriage, in crime, in war, always and everywhere.

Mafia

A marriage is the most private thing in the world. Only the people in it know if it works for them or doesn`t.
