Dan (danguyf) wrote,

I inscribe this in the card with every wedding gift...

...and pray that they never get it backwards.

"Your love is your own private possession, but marriage is more than something personal -- it is a status, an office. Just as it is the crown, and not merely the will to rule, that makes the king, so it is marriage, and not merely your love for each other, that joins you together in the sight of God and man.

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

-- Dietrich Bonhoeffer
