marriage...if you want something to last forever, you treat it differently. you shield it and protect it. you never abuse it. you don't expose it to the elements. you don't make it common or rodinary. if it ever becomes tarnised, you lovingly polish it until it gleams like new. it becomes special becuase you have made it so and it grows more beautiful and precious as time goes on.

“A successful marriage is never a casual achievement or stroke of luck. It is always a triumph of spiritual principles, a product of selfless, sustained effort on behalf of both partners, a victory arising out of the will to love: the will to extend oneself to encourage one another's growth. This victory comes often with the sacrifice of one's own convenience or desires.” –M. Catherine Thomas (from her book ‘Spiritual Lightening’)
