The real act of marriage takes place in the heart, not in the ballroom or church or synagogue. It's a choice you make - not just on your wedding day, but over and over again - and that choice is reflected in the way you treat your husband or wife. Barbara de Angelis

My family, frankly, they weren't folks who went to church every week.

Barack Obama
