Famous quotes containing the words marriages and/or issue:

    Some marriages depend on domestic arguments the way the courts depend on litigation.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)

    Parents are led to believe that they must be consistent, that is, always respond to the same issue the same way. Consistency is good up to a point but your child also needs to understand context and subtlety . . . much of adult life is governed by context: what is appropriate in one setting is not appropriate in another; the way something is said may be more important than what is said. . . .
    Stanley I. Greenspan (20th century)
