To have someone who will stand by your side as you weather life’s storms is a blessing. And to experience true love is a reason to feel joyful (and eat chocolate). This month, as we celebrate love, why not pay tribute to a union that, when entered into, is often done so with so much of it. As an ode to February 14th here are 14 quotes about marriage. Happy Valentine’s Day to those who still say “I do” every single day.
