Opposites attract, but after marriage, opposites attack. Most of the time, we are attracted to people who don't have the things that we have. Incompatibility is why we get married, but it's also used as a reason to divorce. Incompatibility is just a lack of communication. If we just try to love [our spouse] the way we want to be loved, we are in trouble. Unless you communicate, it's difficult to know how to love another person. -Dr. Charles Lowery
Marriage is when a man and woman become as one; the trouble starts when they try to decide which one. -Unknown

How many loved your moments of glad grace.

But one man loved the pilgrim soul in you,
And loved the sorrows of your changing face. -William Butler Yeats
