How much we can do for each other. " - Alex Noble A Wedding is a Day, A Marriage is a Lifetime
  • 9. Intimacy in Marriage "My whole working philosophy is that the only stable happiness for mankind is that it shall live married in blessed union to woman-kind - intimacy, physical and psychical between a man and his wife." - David Herbert Lawrence A Wedding is a Day, A Marriage is a Lifetime
