Movie Quotes – Day 317

Mawage. Mawage is wot bwings us togeder tooday. Mawage, that bwessed awangment, that dweam wifin a dweam… And wuv, tru wuv, will fowow you foweva… So tweasure your wuv. — The Princess Bride

Marriage is more than the reception and the honeymoon.  It’s mortgage payments, lawn care, late night feedings, litter boxes, housebreaking puppies, anniversaries, birthdays, and holidays.  It’s waking up next to her when she doesn’t feel well and putting up with him when he’s in a bad mood.  It’s putting off what you want to make sure the other has what she needs.  It’s learning to cook the way he likes it, and learning to eat things the way he makes them.

In other words, marriage is hard work, and it’s worth every erg of effort.
