Samantha: "Dating from well before the turn of the twentieth century, if there has ever been a successful, happy marriage in my family lineage, I have yet to hear about it. When I rack my brain, I can't think of a single adult, other than myself, in my immediate or extended family who has not been painfully divorced at least once, usually twice -- even the gay ones. This inspires tremendous confidence in my husband."

Jason and Samantha: "If you can compromise on the red hot–button subject of cleanliness, your marriage is unlikely to be thrown off course by comparatively less volatile topics, like politics, religion, and money."

Samantha on working with Jason: "It's very helpful. It's really nice that they hired Jason because that makes it a lot easier on me because we have adult time together. Being at work is kind of like being on a date minus the S-E-X."

Samantha: "Jason had consistently wowed me at every possible holiday and birthday. He's the kind of person who remembers every single thing you've ever said about anything you've ever liked or wanted to do, and files it away in a steel trap in his brain in order to make you cry six months later."

Samantha: "I have no idea how couples do it when they don't work together. We would never see each other except for cleaning up diapers or sweeping the floor. I don't think we would like each other if we didn't work together."

Samantha: "Be happy with simple things. Jason and I are pretty happy when we can have an hour to ourselves, eating a piece of chocolate and watching Top Chef. Those moments are so golden. We keep our expectations for private time low and happiness ensues."
