A Quote by Richard L. Evans on compromise, direction, feeling, forgiveness, giving, humility, humor, marriage, needs, principles, repentance, respect, sense of humor, sharing, and understanding

Marriage requires the giving and keeping of confidences, the sharing of thoughts and feelings, respect and understanding always, marriage requires humility - the humility to repent, the humility to forgive. Marriage requires flexibility (to give and take) and firmness: not to compromise principles. And a wise and moderate sense of humor. Both need to be pulling together in the same direction.

A Quote by Richard David Bach on adventure, beginning, discovery, husbands, marriage, unhappiness, and wives

If we must lose wife or husband when we live to our highest right, we lose an unhappy marriage as well, and we gain ourselves. But if a marriage is born between two already self-discovered, what a lovely adventure begins, hurricanes and all!

A Quote by Richard David Bach on decisions, joy, value, intimacy, marriage, and list

Two things I do value a lot, intimacy and the capacity for joy, didn't seem to be on anyone else's list. I felt like the stranger in a strange land, and decided I'd better not marry the natives.

A Quote by Phyllis Roundy on feeling, life, marriage, women, and worth

The feeling has been expressed in some circles that marriage is the only measure of worth for women. This is not true. Whether a women is married or single, the true worth of her life is measured by the ways she has blessed the lives of others.

A Quote by Peter Ustinov on affection, friendship, learning, love, marriage, needs, and respect

Marriage is like a three-speed gearbox - affection, friendship, love. It is not advisable to crash your gears and go right through to love straightaway. You need to ease your way through. The basis of love is respect, and that needs to be learned from affection and friendship.
