Marriage is more than finding the right person, it is being the right person.

Happy marriages begin when we marry the ones we love, and they blossom when we love the ones we marry.

Poetry for True Romantics
Love does not consist of gazing at each other,
but looking together in the same direction.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
One day you will meet someone
who will see the universe
that was knitted in your bones,
and the embers of galaxies glow to life in your eyes.
And you will finally know
what love is supposed to feel like.
Marriage is not
a house, or even a tent
It is before that, and colder:
the edge of the forest, the edge
of the desert
the unpainted stairs
at the back, where we squat
outdoors, eating popcorn
where painfully and with wonder
at having survived this far
we are learning to make fire.
