    First Came Love Then Came Marriage: BGP's Love & Marriage Thread

    Okay, with all that's going on around us, I thought it would be nice to have a topic that would be a fun place to go to and share favorite anecdotes, quotations, or real-life stories above love, marriage, romance, and intimacy. I certainly don't claim to be an expert on the subject but I do enjoy reading and thinking about it.

    My contribution will be mostly in the form of posting some of my favorite quotes about love, marriage, and romance. I will try to post at least one or two quotes and/or thoughts every day or two.

    I hope you will come here often to enjoy a little levity or share a thought or two about men & women and relationships. Feel free to contribute. Share some laughs and some knowledge. We all need to laugh more and goodness knows we can never learn enough about this topic.

    Ill begin the thread with one of my favorite quotes from satirist Lewis Grizzard. He used to be a regular on the Tonight Show with Carson. On the topic of marriage, Grizzard said,

    " I don't think I'll get married again. I'll just find a woman I don't like and give her a house."

    One of my favorite ladies ever, Ms. Bette Davis, was NEVER one to mince words when it came to love, marriage and men.

    "I'd marry again if I found a man who had $15 million and would sign over half of it to me before the marriage, and guarantee he'd be dead within a year."

    Why did you marry him? I am on a mission from God.

    I really think that what makes men/women relationships so hard is that we are indeed wired differently- we speak different languages, of sorts. A man speaks one thing and a woman interprets it according to the way her brain is wired. And vice versa...

    Dan Fogelberg song from 1984:

    "The Language Of Love"

    She says no
    When she means yes
    And what she wants
    You know that I can't guess
    When we want more
    You know we ask for less
    Such is the language of love

    I say leave
    When I mean stay
    But she don't see
    And so she moves away
    What we really want
    You know we rarely say
    Such is the language of love

    It's tooth for tooth
    And eye for eye
    We hide our hearts
    And then we won't say why
    It's truth for truth
    And lie for lie
    Such is the language of love

    One cries foul
    And will not speak
    The other claims a little victory
    And all the time
    You know we fail to see
    This is the language of love

    When a loves begins to wander
    No one ever knows
    But we feel it deep inside us
    Long before it shows
    Long before it shows

    We hem and haw
    We balk and bluff
    Our words don't ever
    Seem to say enough
    But a simple smile
    A tender touch
    Speaks the true language of love
