Marriage Reminder

"Marriage is more than your love for each other. . .In your love you see only the heaven of your own happiness, but in marriage you are placed a a post of responsibility towards the world and mankind. your love is your own private possession, but marriage is more than something personal-it is a status, and 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."
--Dietrich Bonhoeffer (written from a prison cell in Nazi Germany in 1943)
