from you favorite


“You’ve had a perfect wedding
and now you have a glimpse
of what can come next if
only you will commit to
building a love that lasts
with these seven surprising
secrets of successful marriage.”

"No marriage was ever saved
or made successful
because the couple had
a great sex life!"

"Falling in love is
so very human.
When you feel it in your
heart and in your soul,
take the chance, take the risk.
Sure, your heart can be broken,
but can you imagine going
through life without loving
another human being in
the deepest and
most intimate way?"

"Don’t be fooled
and don’t be foolish.
Relationships that are
the victim of betrayal,
infidelity, and disloyalty
almost always
end in failure."

“Touching becomes
kind of a Morse Code--
a substitute for language
and the expression of feeling.
Successfully married couples
have mastered the
Morse Code of marriage--
it’s called touching.”

"Frankly, marriage should
never be boring!
The successful marriages
we have studied
are characterized by variety, adventyure, laughter,
excitement, surprises and
doing the unexpected."

"The fact is most successful marriages experience
difficult challenges, yet they
survive and thrive.
Our research tells us why."

“Happily married couples
cannot imagine life without
each other. It is so inconceivable
to successfully married couples
that when you ask them
if they could,
their eyes fill with tears while they contemplate the question.”
