So, just in case you’re looking for some insightful quotes on marriage, these ones below may be of help:

“The difference between a house and a home, it’s a big difference. You can buy a house, but that doesn’t make it a home—and not to say a man can’t make a home a home, but my wife has made our house a home, and raised these beautiful kids, and protected them and sacrificed for them. She did the heavy lifting.” – Denzel Washington
“I think what we’ve learned most about each other is that as busy as you are and as much as we have going on career wise, it doesn’t happen without the support of each other.

She’s on Broadway right now doing ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’, I’m out in the world doing movies. We understand the bond we have, the commonality of experiences, the commonality of joy of the theater and of our lives and of our daughter’s life, so it’s easy for us to stay connected.” – Samuel L. Jackson

[There are] no dealbreakers. There’s nothing she could do — ever — nothing that would break our relationship. She has my support till death and it feels so good to get to that space.” – Will Smith
“It’s a partnership and we complement each other. I wait until the last minute to do everything, while my wife is six months ahead with the planning, which makes everything better. ‘Oh, it’s my dad’s birthday today? Damn.’ But she’s like ‘we already sent him a gift two weeks ago!’” – Swizz Beatz
