“Marriage is a journey across an unknown land with nothing to protect you from the elements except one another ”
“God lives in the unadorned heart of the human situation, in the covenantal love between husband and wife on which the republic of faith is built. ”
“Marriage, sanctified by the bond of fidelity, is the nearest life gets to a work of art. ”
“Marriage is the most personal and intimate of all forms of human association, and the deepest matrix of faith. We can face any future without fear if we know we will not face it alone. There is no redemption of solitude deeper than to share a life with someone we love and trust, who we know will never desert us, who lifts us when we fall and believes in us even when we fail. ”
