Famous quotes containing the words family and/or marriage:

    With all the attention paid to your new baby, it’s easy for your own feelings and needs to get lost in the shuffle. Although all parents engage in some self-sacrifice for their children, keep in mind that your goal isn’t just to raise a happy, healthy child. You want that child to be part of a happy, healthy family as well.
    Lawrence Kutner (20th century)

    I have yet to hear a man ask for advice on how to combine marriage and a career.
    Gloria Steinem (b. 1934)
