What greater thing is there for two human souls than to feel that they are

joined for life -  to strengthen each other in all labor, to rest on each

other in all sorrow, to minister to each other in all pain, to be one with

each other in silent, unspeakable memories at the moment of the last parting.

George Elliott (aka Mary Anne Evans), Adam Bede

 

I think a man and a woman should choose each other for life, for the

simple reason that a long life with all its accidents is barely enough time for

a man and a woman to understand each other and. . . To understand -  is to love."

William Butler Yeats

 

I knew couples who’d been married almost forever ? forty, fifty, sixty years.

Seventy-two, in one case. They’d be tending each other’s illnesses, filling

in each other’s faulty memories, dealing with the money troubles or the

daughter’s suicide, or the grandson’s drug addiction. And I was beginning

to suspect that it made no difference whether they’d married the right person.

Finally, you’re just with who you’re with. You’ve signed on with her, put in a half

century with her, grown to know her as well as you know yourself or even better,

and she’s become the right person. Or the only person, might be more to the point.

I wish someone had told me that earlier. I’d have hung on then; I swear I would.”

Anne Tyler, "A Patchwork Planet"

 

Grow old along with me.  The best is yet to be - the last of life for

It is not your love that sustains the marriage, but from now on, the

Marriage is one long conversation, checkered with disputes.
