Wonderful quotes on marriage

I am not married myself, but I love the whole philosophy behind it from a yogic point of view. I find it very inspiring. The following quotes are taken from Yogi Bhajan Lecture Archive

"The one act to perform is for a man and a woman to merge as one. If from this minute they merge as one, they amalgamate now, they shall succeed.

To make an alloy, you take two elements and put them together. The alloy cannot be separated. You can boil it, you can form the alloy into a liquid, you can totally burn it, but once it becomes an alloy, it will totally keep its own quality, own quantity, own weight, own molecules, own electrons, protons and neutrons, and own combination. Whatever made brass doesn’t matter. Brass has its own faculty, own quality, own weight and own property.

Marriage brings happiness. It’s an amalgamation of two psyches. And when these two psyches are amalgamated, neither one is an individual. There is no question of he and she. That’s it. There is no loss, there is no gain and there is no bank account.

And that is what love is, that is what marriage is, that is what life is, that is what good luck is. There are no two opinions about it; when a male and a female merge together. That’s why we do it before God. "
