Quotes About Love And Marriage

In honor of Valentine's Day, here are some of my favorite quotes about love and marriage. I know several of them are actually song lyrics, but there's just something about a good love song that stays with you. Music is one of the few things that can inspire and depress you at the same time.

I know this isn't very Valentine's-y, but breakups are a part of love that we have (or will) to face. Breaking up can actually be positive because we often learn something about ourselves and what we want in life as time goes on. That, and getting rid of the wrong person frees up space in your heart for the right person.
