“When I have learned to love God better than my earthly dearest, I shall love my earthly dearest better than I do now. When first things are put first, second things are not suppressed but increased.”

 ~ C.S. Lewis, Letters of C. S. Lewis
“I, the Lord, am your God. You shall have no other gods before me.”
 ~ Catechism of the Catholic Church, The First Commandment 
"Marriage, as a union of faithful and indissoluble love, is based upon the grace that comes from the triune God, who in Christ loved us with a faithful love, even to the Cross." .... “Matrimony is a Gospel in itself, a good news for the world of today, especially the de-Christianized world.” 
“There is one thing, Emma, which a man can always do if he chooses, and that is his duty; not by manoeuvring and finessing, but by vigour and resolution. – Mr. Knightley”

―  Emma by Jane Austen
Husbands - If your love is motivated by God, your wife will know it, and it will be reflected in the climate of your relationship.

"A Woman's heart should be so hidden in God that a man has to see Him just to find Her."
 ~ Unknown
"Either man governs his passions and finds peace, or he lets himself be dominated by them and becomes unhappy."
(CCC 2349)
“When you foster a Man in holiness, the adjustments that Man makes can be felt for at least three generations.”
 ~ Frank J. Casella
"Can marriage work?  Can a man and woman share their lives, be faithful to one another and build a stable home for their children?  It is hard to say.  Millions have tried it.  Many have failed at it, but more have succeeded.  The evidence suggests that marriage can indeed work.  But you are not wondering about marriage in general.  You are wondering about a particular marriage, your marriage, or the marriage of one of your children or that of a friend.  Can this marriage work?  You would be wise to give it your best energy.  Avail yourself of the finest counsel.  Be as devoted and intentional with it as you can, else you will never know.  “Come and see!”   Jesus says."
~ Bishop Joseph N Perry, John 1: 35-42
