‎”While we as a culture are obsessed with the idea of love, we are terrible lovers when we make it an idol, thinking that the ones we love will save us. When they inevitably fail to meet that expectation, we assume the “right one” is still out there somewhere. But real love is not self-seeking: it is self-giving, laying down its life for the other. A wedding vow is not a promise of emotion, but of action.”
