A Few Marriage Quotes of Interest

So I was looking online at some quotes to put on our blog as a motto or something and some of them sounded really inspiring/helpful/true surprisingly! Let me know what you think, or if you know of any other clever ones!

“Coming together is the beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success.”
-Henry Ford

“Marriage is not a simple love affair, it's an ordeal, and the ordeal is the sacrifice of ego to a relationship in which two have become one.”
-Joseph Campbell

“Often the difference between a successful marriage and a mediocre one consists of leaving about three or four things a day unsaid.”
-Harlan Miller

“What a happy and holy fashion it is that those who love one another should rest on the same pillow.”
-Nathaniel Hawthorne

“To keep your marriage brimming,
With love in the wedding cup,
Whenever you're wrong, admit it;
Whenever you're right, shut up.”
-Ogden Nash

“The goal in marriage is not to think alike, but to think together.” -Robert C. Dodds

“Many marriages would be better if the husband and the wife clearly understood that they are on the same side.”
-Zig Ziglar

I have no way of knowing whether or not you married the wrong person, but I do know that many people have a lot of wrong ideas about marriage and what it takes to make that marriage happy and successful. I'll be the first to admit that it's possible that you did marry the wrong person. However, if you treat the wrong person like the right person, you could well end up having married the right person after all. On the other hand, if you marry the right person, and treat that person wrong, you certainly will have ended up marrying the wrong person. I also know that it is far more important to be the right kind of person than it is to marry the right person. In short, whether you married the right or wrong person is primarily up to you.
-- Zig Ziglar

Our wedding was many years ago. The celebration continues to this day.
-- Gene Perret

You don't marry one person; you marry three:
the person you think they are,
the person they are, and
the person they are going to become
as a result of being married to you.
-- Richard Needham
