Reflections on wives and marriage on Wife Appreciation Day: “ The real act of marriage takes place in the heart, not in the ballroom or church or synagogue. It's a choice you make - not just on your wedding day, but over and over again - and that choice is reflected in the way you treat your husband or wife.” Barbara de Angelis, noted author and motivational speaker in the field of personal and spiritual development.
