I found this from the author Mark Twain

A marriage makes of two fractional lives a whole
It gives to two purposeless lives a work
And doubles the strength of each to perform it. 
It gives to two questioning natures
A reason for living, and something to live for.
It will give new gladness to the sunshine
A new fragrance to the flowers
A new beauty to the earth
And a new mystery to life.
