What it means to be a husband, a wife

A good husband makes a good wife.
~ John Florio

The real act of marriage takes place in the heart, not in the ballroom or church or synagogue. It's a choice you make - not just on your wedding day, but over and over again - and that choice of reflected in the way you treat your husband or wife.
~ Barbara de Angelis

Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord...Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her...In the same way husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself.
~ Ephesians 5:22, 25, 28

At the end of your life, you will never regret not having passed one more test, not winning one more verdict or not closing one more deal. You will regret time not spent with a husband, a friend, a child, or a parent.
~ Barbara Bush



  1. Nice quotes Pearlie. I sometimes think that it is possible for a couple to be married before a judge or preacher proclaims them to be.

  2. You think so? In what way?

  3. Marriage is a joining of hearts before God. In that respect only the members of the marriage covenant (God, husband & wife) need be involved. But I am not saying that religious and civil authorities should not be involved.

  4. Ah...I see what you mean, and I agree.
