Marriage quotes, love quotes - The marriage box. Most people get married believing in a myth; that marriage is a beautiful box, full of all the things they long for, acceptance, companionship, adventure, romance, love, intimacy etc. The truth is in the beginning marriage is an empty box. Before you can take anything out, both of you must work together to put the things you need into the box. There is no love in the marriage, it's people who put love in your marriage. You do this by listening to understand, selfless giving, loving unconditionally, serving, and praising each other. Only then will the box be full. If you take out more then you put in, the box will soon be empty.
