"I distilled in The Proper Care and Feeding of Marriage three essential points, after my first admonition of ‘choose wisely and treat kindly’:
1. Treat your spouse as if you loved him or her with your last breath—no matter how contrary to that you might feel at any one moment.
2. Think hard every day about how you can make your spouse’s life worth living.
3. Be the kind of person you would want to love, hug, come home to, and sacrifice for."
