"The world may see marriage differently now as old traditions are being replaced by new ones. But one thing is for sure: no other relationship of any kind can bring as much joy, generate as much good, or produce as much personal refinement as a marriage.

More Marriage Quotes…and a Few Personal Thoughts, Part 2

Here's another interesting piece of advice you'll find on our marriage quotes page:

"Ultimately the bond of companionship, whether in marriage or in friendship, is conversation."

This quote is from Oscar Wilde who was an Irish writer from the late 1800s. One of his accomplishments was the novel "The Picture of Dorian Gray."

I really like this quote.

When you find conversation is high in a marriage, or any relationship, you'll usually find a high level of affinity as well. Of course we're talking about civil conversation here, not two people yelling and screaming at each other. Although some people will tell you that yelling at each other is better than not talking at all.

If you find your level of conversation falling off, take steps to remedy. One very easy remedy is to talk about something your spouse is very interested in.

One example would be:

The wife can't wait to see the wedding between Prince Charles and Kate Middleton. The husband couldn't care less. But the communication between them hasn't been all that great lately, so the husband asks, "How are things lining up for the royal wedding?"

If asked sincerely, this could have a very positive effect. Of course it might take a few instances of doing this, but I've seen it work quite often.

Another example:

The husband loves professional football. That might include a few husbands, right? And there just may be a few wives who have zero to minus zero interest in football. But again the communication between the two needs a helping hand, so the wife says the night before the big game, "Honey I'm heading to the store. What can I get you for the game tomorrow?" or:

"Honey, the guys in Vegas have the Colts as a lock for tomorrow's game. Is that how you see it?"

Okay, I'm kidding on that last one, but you get the idea.

The bond between the two of you is easily improved with good communication.

Marriage Quotes…and a Few Personal Thoughts, Part 1

In the next few posts, let's look at some of the marriage quotes that have been collected together on this blog.

The first one is:

"Many marriages would be better if the husband and the wife clearly understood that they are on the same side." – Zig Ziglar


It took me longer than it should have to REALLY get that my wife and I were on the same side. I recall some of the strange notions I was operating with:

"I need to win this argument no-matter-what."

"If I persist long enough or sulk loudly enough, she'll give in."

"She just doesn't understand how important this is to ME."

There were other strange notions, but let's just say I finally got the idea my wife was not a member of the opposing team. She and I were (and are) on the same team. Sometimes this idea gets lost or diminished. I'm sure there are a variety of reasons this happens, but one simple solution is to just step back and look at our spouse and say: "Hey, we're on the same side. Let's work this out together."
