"You can make a marriage work if you try. I don’t see why people leave after they have a falling out. Almost everybody you meet is a human. *laughs* We all make mistakes. The next person you’re with will have faults too. When we make a mistake, we just need to correct it.
"People can learn to care about each other whether they start out that way or not. When I was growing up, I was the oldest of four children. Our mother was in poor health, so her spinster sister moved in to help take care of us. She was a stenographer and looked about like what you’d expect: plain and sensible. Well, my mother passed away not long before I finished high school. After things settled down a little, my father and aunt decided it didn’t look right for her to still be living in the house and them not married. They didn't love each other---it was a marriage of convenience---but they got married anyway; it was the right thing to do. She did kind things for him, he did kind things for her, and in time the two of them fell in love. It was a beautiful thing to see. If you make up your mind to do the right thing by each other and not to be selfish, you’ll end up caring for each other."
