Take this as an opportunity to weave in quotes which reference the commitment that one must have when entering a marriage.

“Marriage: If you want something to last forever, you treat it differently. You shield it and protect it. You never abuse it. You don’t expose it to the elements.

It becomes special because you have made it so, and it grows more beautiful and precious as time goes by.” — F. Burton Howard
