"The only thing I would change about you is your last mine."

“Let us not live a life … that would bring regret. … It is not going to matter very much how much money you made, what kind of a house you lived in, what kind of a car you drove, the size of your bank account—any of those things. What is going to matter is that dear woman who has walked with you side by side as your companion through all of the years of life and those children and grandchildren and great-grandchildren and their faithfulness and their looking to you … with respect and love and deference and kindness.” Gordon B. Hinckley

Proverbs 3:5-6 ¶ aTrust in the Lord with all thine bheart; and lean not unto thine cown dunderstanding. 6 In all thy ways aacknowledge him, and he shall bdirect thy cpaths.

"It is far more difficult to be of one heart and mind than to be physically one. This unity of heart and mind is manifest in sincere expressions of 'I appreciate you' and 'I am proud of you.' Such domestic harmony results from forgiving and forgetting, essential elements of a maturing marriage relationship. Someone has said that we 'should keep [our] eyes wide open before marriage, and half shut afterward.' True charity ought to begin in marriage, for it is a relationship that must be rebuilt every day." President James E. Faust

It’s easy to fall in love. The hard part is finding someone to catch you. ~Bertrand Russell

"I know that you are not perfect and nor can I claim to be either, but please believe me, when I say that I want to be by your side, to hold your hand, to treasure you in the morning and in the noon-tide, to be next to you, to be held close to your heart now and for the rest of my living years, to comfort you, dry your tears and calm your most frightening fears, to fight your battles and show no shame to scream my love for you out loud all over the land."

"The easiest part of marriage is falling in love and walking down the aisle. The most difficult part of marriage is 10 years later when the problems have ensued and issues have come about and you still find love. Marriage is not about the beginning, marriage is about the process and still being able to love through all things."

"Love is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion. That is just being "in love" which any of us can convince ourselves we are. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. Your mother and I had it, we had roots that grew towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossom had fallen from our branches we found that we were one tree and not two."~St. Augustine

Don’t marry the person you think you can live with. Marry the person you can’t live without. ~ James Dobson

Marriage is like a golden ring in a chain, whose beginning is a glance and whose ending is in eternity."

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

What counts in making a marriage happy isn’t in how compatible you are, but how you deal with incompatibility. ~Leo Tolstoy

We have waited many years to have the opportunity to be sealed together as a our dreams came true

It had been years since Jonathan and I have gone to the temple together. Sadly, we couldn't even remember the last time we had been there with the other. We made a commitment to never go that long again.

My eternal companion

I am so grateful for the relationship we now share....

we support one another, love one another, confide in one another, accept one another, and enjoy one another...just as it should be.

“I promise you that all who faithfully attend to temple work will be blessed beyond measure. Your families will draw closer to the Lord, unseen Angels will watch over your loved ones when Satanic forces tempt them, the veil will be thin and great spiritual experiences will distill upon this people.” ~Vaughn J. Featherstone

The temple is a very important part of their relationship...they will go again and again

"Love me without fear.Trust me without wondering.Love me without restrictions.Want me without demand.Accept me how I am.A love like that, will be eternal!"

'The most important single thing that any Latter-day Saint ever does in this world is to marry the right person, in the right place, by the right authority' Bruce R. McConkie

"One good yardstick as to whether a person might be the right one for you is this: in her presence, do you think your noblest thoughts, do you aspire to your finest deeds, do you wish you were better than you are?" Ezra Taft Benson
