Are You Ready For Love?
Are you psychologically healthy enough to get married? Can you pass the mental hygiene test?

We conclude our tribute to Dr. Murray Banks by sharing with you our favorite quote from him:

"I hope you'll never forget, never, that happiness is just like chasing a butterfly. The more you chase it and chase it and chase it directly, it will always just allude you. But if you sit down quietly, turn your thoughts to other things, the butterfly comes and softly sits on your shoulders." Always embrace the "butterfly of life." You won't regret it.

Saving the legacy of Dr. Murray Banks is important now and in the future. Don't forget the lessons he has taught us. 

Dr. Banks is currently in his 90's and living in New York City. May he continue to live long and prosper. Dr. Murray Banks changed our lives forever in a very good way so many years ago. We hope you will take the time to "save Dr. Banks" legacy by reviewing his biography and by listening to his many historic speeches available on the Worldwide Web.

Once you have passed Dr. Banks' psychological exam, you are ready to take the Quiz in How to Marry the Right Guy to find out if the guy you think you are in love with has the essential characteristics necessary to be a good husband.
