Another thought on Marriage

Total unselfishness is sure to accomplish another factor in successful marriage. If one is forever seeking the interests, comforts, and happiness of the other, the love found in courtship and cemented in marriage will grow into mighty proportions. Many couples permit their marriages to become stale and their love to grow cold like old bread or worn-out jokes or cold gravy. Certainly the foods most vital for love are consideration, kindness, thoughtfulness, concern, expressions of affection, embraces of appreciation, admiration, pride, companionship, confidence, faith, partnership, equality, and interdependence.”

Spencer W. Kimball

It reminded me of one of my favorite J.D. Salinger quotes:

Marriage Partners are to serve each other, love, honor but above all serve.

Raise High the Roof Beam, Carpenter.
