Husband and wife must delight in the love and company, and lives of each other. When husband and wife take pleasure in each other, it unites them in duty, it helps them with ease to do their work, and bear their burdens; and is a major part of the comfort of marriage. ~Richard Baxter
Marriage is choosing again and again to love and to cherish one another with each new day.
Marriage is the most intimate, humbling, loving, and self-sacrificial relationship between a man and a woman.
Love is an antiphon. ~Brent Sadler
It is a mercy to have a faithful friend that loveth you entirely to whom you may open your mind and communicate your affairs. And it is a mercy to have so near a friend to be a helper to your soul and to stir up in you the grace of God. ~Richard Baxter
There is no society more near, more entire, more needful, more kindly, more delightful, more comfortable, more constant, more continual, than the society of man and wife, the main root, source, and origin of all other societies. ~Thomas Gataker
