The real act of marriage takes place in the heart, not in the ballroom or church or synagogue. It’s a choice you make – not just on your wedding day, but over and over again – and that choice is reflected in the way you treat your husband or wife.

— Barbara De Angelis

I believe marriage is between a man and a woman. I am not in favor of gay marriage.

Usually, our constitutions expand liberties, they don’t contract them.

— Barack Obama

— Bruce Forsyth

Many people spend more time in planning the wedding than they do in planning the marriage.

— Zig Ziglar

The argument that gay marriage doesn’t affect straight marriages is a ridiculous red herring: Gay marriage affects society and law in dramatic ways. Religious groups will come under direct assault as federal and state governments move to strip them of their non-profit statuses if they refuse to perform gay marriages.

— Ben Shapiro

If you want to know how your girl will treat you after marriage, just listen to her talking to her little brother.
