Marriage isn't about romance. Don't get me wrong, all marriages should be full of romance, but no lasting marriage can have romance as its cornerstone. Think about it - are you going to feel romantic waking up together after your first night as husband and wife and seeing your spouse's sloppy hair and smelling their stinky morning breath? If love is all about romance, your marriage pretty much ends right there. But love is far more than just romance, because the foundations of love are commitment and devotion, even when you wake up and the person laying next to you looks more like a zombie than your spouse and a whiff of their breath makes your run for the Listerine.
