21 Years Ago

Chris & Wendy Jeub's Marriage

We married 21 years ago today. Here are some quotes I found that remind me of my marriage to Chris…

Happy marriages begin when we marry the ones we love, and they blossom when we love the ones we marry.

— Tom Mullen

I have no way of knowing whether or not you married the wrong person, but I do know that many people have a lot of wrong ideas about marriage and what it takes to make that marriage happy and successful. I’ll be the first to admit that it’s possible that you did marry the wrong person. However, if you treat the wrong person like the right person, you could well end up having married the right person after all. On the other hand, if you marry the right person, and treat that person wrong, you certainly will have ended up marrying the wrong person. I also know that it is far more important to be the right kind of person than it is to marry the right person. In short, whether you married the right or wrong person is primarily up to you.

— Zig Ziglar

One of the great illusions of our time is that love is self-sustaining. It is not. Love must be fed and nurtured, constantly renewed. That demands ingenuity and consideration, but first and foremost, it demands time.

— David Mace

Our wedding was many years ago. The celebration continues to this day. 

— Gene Perret

People think they have to find their soulmate to have a good marriage. You’re not going to “find” your soulmate. Anyone you meet already has soulmates. Their mother. Their father. Their lifelong friends. You get married, and after 20 years of loving,bearing and raising children, meeting challenges – then you’ll have “created” your soulmate.

— Diane Sollee
