Most married people must, to some extent, renounce certain parts of their personalities; they must sacrifice at the altar of marriage.
The central issue in marriage is not well-being or happiness; it is salvation. Marriage involves not only a man and a woman who happily love each other and raise offspring together, but rather two people who are trying to individuate, to find their souls salvation
The web of marriage is made by propinquity in the day to day living, side by side, looking outward and working in the same direction. It is woven in space and in time of the substance of life itself
Anne Morrow Lindbergh
If we did not look to marriage as the principal source of happiness, fewer marriages would end in tears.
Seldom or never does a marriage develop into an individual relationship smoothly and without crises. There is no birth of consciousness without pain.
C. G. Jung
A marriage is like a long trip in a tiny row boat: if one passenger starts to rock the boat, the other has to steady it; otherwise, they will go to the bottom together.
Love is an ideal thing, marriage is a real thing; a confusion of the real thing with the ideal thing never goes unpunished
Husbands and wife are like the two equal parts of a soy bean.
If the two parts are put under the earth separately, they will not grow.
The soy bean will grow only when the parts are covered by the skin.
Marriage is the skin which covers each of them and makes them one.
Marriage is sought and kept alive by a deep yearning to know another and be known by another.
With passion you want to possess.
The conversion of passion into compassion is the whole problem of marriage.
