People get married not out of nobleness but out of love

If a man gave up all that he had in order to be with the person he loved and you went up to that man and said, “You are so noble” and patted him on the back, he would utterly despise your applause. It insults love to measure it by costs or sacrifices. Only those who have not truly loved would ever compare things like possessions, money, fame or even comfort, with love. Love is so much greater than them all that to give them in exchange for love is like tossing a thimble of water into the ocean and calling it a sacrifice when the ocean is now yours. Love… Love divine, knows no cost. It isn’t always a bed of roses but loving Him with all of our hearts is better than everything this life can offer. (Song of Solomon. 8:6)
