“Chains do not hold a marriage together. It is threads, hundreds of tiny threads which sew people together through the years.” – Simone Signoret

Anyone who has been married for any length of time can attest to the veracity of this statement. I know this may seem a little bit like a no-brainer, but this was a huge “a-ha!” for me.

A great marriage is not truly about a ton of huge, monumental accomplishments. Great marriage is in the details, the small, seemingly inconsequential moments. All the little things that stitch two people into one. This miracle, this treasure, this mystery that confounds those who have been at it for half a century almost as much as it confounds those of us who’ve been at it for a year and a half.

 

 

Inspiration

A real man is a woman’s best friend. He will never let her down. He will comfort her after a bad day. He will inspire her to do things she never thought she could do. He will enable her to express her deepest emotions. He will enable her to be confident and feel invincible…

No … wait… Sorry. I’m thinking of vodka. It’s vodka that does all that crap. Never mind…
