“It takes a long time to really be married. One marries many times at many levels within that marriage. If you have more marriages than you have divorces within the marriage, you’re lucky and you stick it out.”
– Ruby Dee, American actress, poet, playwright, screenwriter, journalist, and civil rights activist
