When times get tough, look to these for the encouragement you need to power through.
You FINALLY found that special someone who was always there when you were in serious need. When you were sick, couldn't find your car keys, or when you gained weight during grad school, the love of your life was right by your side, still saying "I love you."
It's one thing to hold a hand when things get tough, but you could really see things were solid late at night when you whispered to each other about your deepest fears, hopes, and failures. This love was strong. It's still there.
No one knows you better. No one else has seen you at your worst moments. Your hearts felt that unity and destiny made it clear ... you both found THE ONE in each other.
But marriage is a lot more work down the line. After the honeymoon is over, LIFE happens.
There's not a lot of romance in discussing finances. There are no seductive tones to figuring out which in-laws you'll be forced to spend the holidays with this year. How were you supposed to know that the dog you got would refuse to sleep unless he's in your bed?
And kids? A whole other beast.
So how do people stay married and IN LOVE forever, you wonder?
As hard as it is to believe when you're exhausted and confused and angry, it IS possible to be happy together again. You CAN find a way to work through the growing pains of deep, committed love.
Use these marriage quotes to get you through ANYTHING life throws at you — because there's little more important than spending the rest of your life with the person you love most.
