A Beautiful Quote on Marriage

If you want something to last forever, you treat it differently. You shield it and protect it. You never abuse it. You don’t expose it to the elements. You don’t make it common or ordinary. If it ever becomes tarnished, you lovingly polish it until it gleams like new. It becomes special because you have made it so, and it grows more beautiful and precious as time goes by.” F. Burton Howard

I stumbled upon this beautiful quote a few days go and I thought I had to share it with you! Isn’t it a wonderful and inspirational description of marriage? I simply love it and couldn’t agree with it more!

Yes, I want my marriage to last forever and I will treat it with more care, attention, and love than anything else.

I will shield it and protect it and I will never abuse it for my selfish gain, or that of someone else.

I will not expose it to anything that could harm or damage my marriage.

I wll not make it common or ordinary, but instead special, exciting, and different.

I hope it never becomes tarnished, but if it does happen, I will exhort myself to polishing it until it gleams like new.

It is special and precious because I made it so, and it will become ever more so with each passing day.

I’m sure you want the same for your marriage ❤ I hope this inspires you!

  1. I love that qoute! Me and my hubby are married for 10 years now. We try to make every day special. I see you and your husband are working very hard to mantain good relationship. This makes me very happy, because there are so many people who give up on their marriage too quickly. I hope you two will have a wonderful life together with lots of happines, joy, health and of course lots and lots of LOVE.

    • It’s nice to hear from people who have been married for longer and still going strong! I’m happy that you and your husband are doing such a fine job, I wish there would be more people willing to do the work, it is so worth it. Thank you so much for your encourageing words, I wish you a lot of love too, and special moments 😉

  2. I also think this is a beautiful quote, and its so true, it does require effort but the benefits of having a happy marriage far outweigh all possible efforts ;-). Marriage really needs to be protected in today’s world from all the wrong elements which influence it negatively.
