“Like everything which is not the involuntary result of fleeting emotion but the creation of time and will, any marriage, happy or unhappy, is infinitely more interesting than any romance, however passionate.” – W.H. Auden
“The first purpose in marriage — beyond happiness, sexual expression, the bearing of children, companionship, mutual care and provision, or anything else — is to please God. The challenge, of course, is that it is utterly selfless living; rather than asking, ‘What will make me happy?’ we are told that we must ask, ‘What will make God happy'” – Gary Thomas
“[Marriage] is the merciless revealer, the great white searchlight turned on the darkest places of human nature.” – Katherine Anne Porter
“Allow your marriage relationship to stretch your love and to enlarge your capacity for love – to teach you to be a Christian.” – Gary Thomas
Nothing in creation has deepened my walk with Christ more or made me more complete as a man than my marriage and being a father. Thank you God for my wife and our children. I am most blessed.
