Quotes About the Marriage of Diane Lane and Josh Brolin:

Diane: “I remember hearing someone say, ‘To do it once is easy’ [getting married]. There’s something you give that you don’t really ever give again. What you do is, you give something else. You know, to knowingly go forward and do it again is very different from the blindness of love and all that. There’s an element of faith involved.”

Josh: "I pretend to run the show and my wife allows me to think that I run everything. But she’s really in charge. We all get along with each other — all the kids and our exes. It is a modern marriage."

Diane: "My work life has grown, my relationship with Josh has grown, my responsibilities as a parent grew and changed. One day about a year and a half ago, I realized I can't put these responsibilities in a jar and tend to them later, especially when it comes to time with my family. Life isn't "when the kids get a little older" or "when Josh and I have the perfect quiet moment alone." Right now is all we've got."

Diane about marriage: "You don't know how many flaws you have until you've lived with someone. It's humbling just to stick it out. Love is saying you're sorry. It's the opposite of those cherub posters that say, "Love is never having to say you're sorry." Wrong! Love is three sorrys a day. If you haven't met that quota, something's wrong."
