Bruce about marriage: "I think it [marriage] certainly has its place if you’re going to have kids. There was a time when I said, 'I’m not going to marry.' At least now, I allow for the possibility. I don’t know if it’s going to happen or not, but I haven’t slammed that door shut and bolted it. Romance dies hard. It’s what we’re about as human beings. It’s a big part of it. What I have come to understand a lot better is the mythology of love, the mythology of romance, which is taught to us from the time we’re kids, from books we read, from films we see, from songs on the radio. One of the myths is: love at first sight. It continues to change for me, and I allow for the possibility of romance."

Bruce: "I just don’t think that’s true, that when you meet the love of your life, all the hard work is over. The hard work has just begun. You’ve got to keep working on it all the time. “Love and marriage” is like a little garden that needs to be tended every day."
