To Warm Things Up

I have been trying to write something but I found out that it would be better if I warmed things up first with some quotes I liked

• [A] husband who can cook is not at all the same thing as a husband who can shop, prepare, and assemble ingredients, and clean up the mess after the great burst of creativity." Mary-Jo Fitzgerald, Marriage and the male animal

• Now non-Indian people think they know all about arranged marriages. 'So I hear that when you're born, the first thing your parents do is chose a nice girl for you to marry when you're old enough.' 'No, No! It doesn't work like that. Arranged marriages are more like going to a car show. Your dad lets you look at, and compare all the cars. 'Oh that one is nice. You would like that one, you like it? Ya, you are going to get that one.' - 'Don't I get to test drive it?' - 'No, not now, wait until you are married, then you can test drive it all you want. Russell Peters

• There's nothing a woman hates more than her fiancé’s best friend. He knows all the secrets she's going to spend the rest of her life trying to find out. Jeff Douglas line in the musical Brigadoon

• He's a wonderful first husband. ~ James Goldsmith, on his daughter Jemima's marriage to Imran Khan

• I first learned the concepts of non-violence in my marriage. ~ Mohandas Gandhi

• Marriage is really tough because you have to deal with feelings...and lawyers. ~ Richard Pryor

• Nearly all marriages, even happy ones, are mistakes: in the sense that almost certainly (in a more perfect world, or even with a little more care in this very imperfect one) both partners might be found more suitable mates. But the real soul-mate is the one you are actually married to. ~ J. R. R. Tolkien, Letter to Michael Tolkien, March, 1941

• On rare occasions one does hear of a miraculous case of a married couple falling in love after marriage, but on close examination it will be found that it is a mere adjustment to the inevitable. ~ Emma Goldman

• The concept of marriage must have been thought up by an unimaginative pig. ~ Albert Einstein
• There's only one way to have a happy marriage and as soon as I learn what it is I'll get married again. ~ Clint Eastwood

• Thus Dante's motto over Inferno applies with equal force to marriage: Ye who enter here leave all hope behind. ~ Emma Goldman

• You only know what happiness is once you're married. But then it's too late. ~ Peter Sellers

• Marriage is the triumph of imagination over intelligence. - Oscar Wilde

• The one charm about marriage is that it makes a life of deception absolutely necessary for both parties. - Oscar Wilde

• No one can consider themselves truly married until they understand every word their spouse is not saying. - Lord Mancroft

• A man is incomplete until he marries - then he is finished. - Unknown

• You don't marry someone you can live with, you marry the person who you cannot live without. – Unknown

• Never marry someone whom you wouldn't want to be divorced from. – Unknown

• Marriage is like falling into a black hole, you only want to do it with someone that you can take a long ride with. - Unknown

Allow me to humbly place an auto-quote:

"He shall live restless who marries another woman, yet has been blessed by a woman of your calibre in his life"

Author: A man who's about to marry another woman after being blessed by your sweet presence in his life.

You know who I am.

i wasnt gonna comment ... but actually, and honestly speaking, i have been triggered by the You-Know-Who comment!!!

for god sake does anyone in this life know what marriage is? how sacred, how wise, how it is supposed to be, and what it should be based upon!!! or i am the only one here

let me add

"He who marries a woman, while he tells another that he is blessed by her presence in his life... is JUST play with words ... with NO good intentions at all
u know what ... i am so so so so so angry

sorry for my reaction, but dont blame me

Hello My Dear
I understand your anger :) Actually most of my friends had similar reactions.
I told him about my friend Sameh comment. Sameh warned me. He said that Brad is probably saying these things out of guilt. And that I should take care because I might get attached as these words goes straight into the heart.
Brad said that he only says things that he feels.
Honestly, I have seen this in a different way. You know when you have a dream, a really nice dream that would have been bliss to come true. His words belong to that dream. I don’t like to think much about how good it was going to be if it wasn’t just a dream.
Anyway, I am still betting on his good side. I am still betting he will not hurt me again. I have put my intelligence to rest as it has failed me before. May be this time my goodwill will save me.
