Happy 16th Anniversary!

Sixteen years ago today I was 16 and making a commitment that I didn't fully understand. Looking back on those early years, I am not sure how we made it through. It's been a long, hard journey and we have had to work at it every day. I am proud of what we've done and where we are today. He is my best friend and I would rather spend my time with him than enyone else on this earth.

Here are some marriage quotes I came across that I enjoyed.....

Success in marriage does not come merely through finding the right mate, but through being the right mate. ~Barnett R. Brickner

More marriages might survive if the partners realized that sometimes the better comes after the worse. ~Doug Larson

One advantage of marriage is that, when you fall out of love with him or he falls out of love with you, it keeps you together until you fall in again. ~Judith Viorst

In every marriage more than a week old, there are grounds for divorce. The trick is to find, and continue to find, grounds for marriage. ~Robert Anderson, Solitaire & Double Solitaire

In the opinion of the world, marriage ends all, as it does in a comedy. The truth is precisely the opposite: it begins all. ~Anne Sophie Swetchine

A wedding anniversary is the celebration of love, trust, partnership, tolerance and tenacity. The order varies for any given year. ~Paul Sweeney

One of the good things that come of a true marriage is, that there is one face on which changes come without your seeing them; or rather there is one face which you can still see the same, through all the shadows which years have gathered upon it. ~George MacDonald

Most marriages can survive "better or worse." The tester is all the years of "exactly the same."
~Robert Brault
