Episode 46: Considering Marriage in Our Lives

A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person.
— Mignon McLaughlin
When marrying, ask yourself this question: Do you believe that you will be able to converse well with this person into your old age? Everything else in marriage is transitory.
— Friedrich Nietzsche
Don’t marry the person you think you can live with; marry only the individual you think you can’t live without.
— James Dobson
