“I have always been fascinated with romance and the fact that it is so effortless when we first fall in love,
but how it then becomes a conscious effort to stay creative and connected.
That’s why I always say, ‘Get wise: keep your romance alive.’”
~ Yolanda Hadid

“Husbands and wives, first be faithful to each other.
Second, keep the romance going all of your life by courting each other every day.”

“It is a foolish woman who expects her husband to be to her that which only Jesus Christ Himself can be:
always ready to forgive, totally understanding, unendingly patient, invariably tender and loving,
unfailing in every area, anticipating every need, and making more than adequate provision.
Such expectations put a man under an impossible strain.”
~ Ruth McCue Bell Graham,
Philanthropist, Poet, Author & Painter
“Experts on romance say for a happy marriage there has to be more than a passionate love.
For a lasting union, they insist, there must be a genuine liking for each other
which, in my book, is a good definition for friendship.”
~ Marilyn Monroe

“Financial independence is paramount. My mom always says that when a woman is financially independent,
she has the ability to live life on her own terms. I think that was the soundest advice
that I ever got. No matter where you go in life or who you get married to,
you have to be financially independent – whether you use it or not.
~ Priyanka Chopra,
Actress, Singer, Film Producer, Philanthropist, Founder – Purple Pebble Pictures & Miss World 2000
“God says, ‘One woman, one man,’ and everyone says, ‘Oh, that’s old hat, that’s that old Bible stuff,'” ….
“But I’m thinking, well let’s see now. A clean guy – a disease-free guy and a disease-free woman –
they marry and they keep their sex between the two of them.
They’re not going to get chlamydia, and gonorrhea, and syphilis, and AIDS. It’s safe.”
~ Phil Robertson,
Professional Hunter, Businessman, & Reality Television Star
