When I play it I look out and see people hold on to each other and dance or just couples leaning into each other and kiss.

If the court strikes down the Defense of Marriage Act, is that a 'liberal' result enabling gay couples married in states where gay marriage is legal to enjoy the same economic advantages that federal laws now grant to straight couples? Or is it a 'conservative' ruling, limiting the federal government's ability to override state power? -Jeff Greenfield

The issue of equal rights for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals has vexed politicians for decades. I have my own cloudy history with the issue, having supported a law in Mississippi that made it illegal for LGBT couples to adopt children. I believed at the time this was a principled position based on my faith. -Ronnie Musgrove

Marriage helps young couples to raise themselves towards God. The bond of marriage unites two souls so firmly that though they are physically two separate entities, their souls are merged into one harmonious whole. -Dada Vaswani

I think straight couples have a schedule: You're together for two years and then there's the 'where is this going?' question, which wouldn't necessarily be good for everyone, but I think it's pretty healthy for relationships, for there to be a presumption that there is a decision to be made. -Nick Denton

All couples have been told to schedule regular one-on-one time. 'Date night' is the default answer to most problems in modern marriages. And research backs this up. -Bruce Feiler

The virtue of the civil partnerships scheme lay in the attempt to treat the needs of gay and lesbian couples as what they are, not to bundle them into some other category. -John Sentamu

In American fertility clinics, 75 percent of couples are requesting girls and not boys. -Hanna Rosin

Research shows that couples who have a lot of similarities, including intellectual compatibility, end up staying together. -Helen Fisher

I saw 'Brokeback Mountain' in a packed house in Chelsea, New York, when I was filming a Bollywood film there. Chelsea, being a predominately gay neighbourhood, had the most euphoric reaction.

Not everything has to be a couples' event. -Olivia Wilde

What I tell young couples that are getting married is: you're going to have quarrels, and on some things, you're just going to have to agree to disagree.

The decision to write full-time meant I couldn't afford to buy a house.

I'm convinced there are a lot of couples who have got together while listening to my music. My songs are not exactly unsexy. -Kylie Minogue

There will be gay couples; it will exist. It is not very nice that people who are married – who divorce in three seconds – don't want protection for the others. The legal system should protect everyone, not just the few people who think they are above everybody else because they are married. -Karl Lagerfeld

Living with anyone for many years takes skill. To keep peace in the household, couples learn to adapt to one another, hopefully in positive ways. -Diane Ackerman

So many times I've heard people say that the right to marry for gay and lesbian couples won't really change anything other than some legal and financial stuff. It's a dumb argument: those legal and financial effects matter. -Alice Dreger

Modern elites live in bubbles of liberal affluence like Ann Arbor, Brookline, the Upper West Side, Palo Alto, or Chevy Chase.

Valentine's Day: Rubbing singles' noses in their lack of a mate and the noses of couples in their lack of time. -Emma McLaughlin

Working on 'Downton Abbey' is amazing, but there's an ensemble cast of between 18 and 21 actors. With 'Love Life,' there are two couples and a few other key characters. As a smaller unit, you've got to take more responsibility – at the same time, you can have more ownership of the direction it's going in. -Rob James-Collier

The more brutal it gets in the working world, the more appealing the prospect of having someone at home creating a sanctuary becomes. Increasingly couples, particularly with children, are making that tough choice, with one or other partner electing to embrace domestic duties while the other brings home the cash. -Mariella Frostrup

My kids are coming up in a different time then me. Interracial couples are of the norm. With me, it's about making sure my kids understand the importance of education and having opportunities that I didn't. My goal as a parent is to make sure they don't take what they have for granted. -Kevin Hart

I've been close to two or three couples, gay and straight, who have been together for 45 years. -Ira Sachs

To see two couples that are battling to make it work just shows that love is in a marriage, but there are also trials and things that you have to make it through and showing women and men how to keep it spicy. -Kyla Pratt

You get those couples who are very fearful of bringing children into the mix because they feel like somehow that link between them as a couple is going to somehow dissolve or become less powerful or whatever. And that somehow the child is going to disrupt their happy stage. -Rosamund Pike

From 1983 to 2000, William Goren stole more than $30 million from investors on Long Island and in Queens. His favorite targets were widows and retired couples, like Helga and Simon Novack, Holocaust survivors who gave Mr. Goren their life savings. -Alex Berenson

Even though many couples are choosing to marry later in life, our laws haven't been updated to address dating partner abuse. -Gabrielle Giffords

Most couples manage to cooperate on child raising – for us, our brain project is our third child, so nothing different, really. -Edvard Moser

Often, we noticed that – during a lot of his evangelistic-type services – that some of the Amish and Old Order Mennonite couples would come and stand across the street from the church and look in the door. -Beverly Lewis

It's important for couples to be friends first and to respect each other as individuals. -Anupam Kher

Older couples bring obligations such as support payments and debt as well as decades of financial experience to a marriage. -Jean Chatzky

Joining finances can be tricky. Money has long topped the list of topics couples fight about. -Jean Chatzky

I cannot, will never, understand these couples who hate each other, who conduct open warfare in front of their children – the kind of people who have to drop the kids off at the end of the driveway in case they lay eyes on one another. At the very least, civility must reign. -John Niven

We live in a crazily youth-orientated world nowadays. It's a trickle-down thing. We see pictures of lithe, attractive celebrity couples such as Brad and Angelina or the Beckhams cavorting around, covered in tattoos, stomachs as flat as the singing in early 'X Factor' rounds. -John Niven

I started making music that I loved and was passionate and excited about, but it was really cool when I started touring to realize it's an extremely diverse group of people who come out. In the front row, I'll have everyone from a little girl in a frilly tutu, to rockers and gamers and older couples. I love it that it's just everybody. -Lindsey Stirling

For two people to satisfy everything each needs for their entire lives is a tall order. Some couples may be equipped to do this. Some are not. -Mary Gaitskill

In California, of course, they never break up couples at dinner for fear of what might happen if someone's husband were seated next to someone else's very young girlfriend. But dinners with couples seated next to one another are always deadly dull, which is why there are almost no good dinner parties in the entire state of California. -Nora Ephron

I know a lot of very stable gay couples. -Condoleezza Rice

Certainly the attrition rate of Hollywood couples looms large. -Brad Pitt

A lot of shows have couples with issues inside the relationship. -Michael Trucco

One of the things that the court held in Brown v. Board of Education is that government can't impose a badge of inferiority on some of its citizens. Yet that is exactly what Proposition 8 does with respect to gay and lesbian couples in California. -David Boies

We can't have investors buying four apartments while young couples struggle to raise another 5,000 shekels for a home. I appeal to investors: Think about these young couples, and invest your money elsewhere. -Moshe Kahlon

Our government and its social policies, its tax breaks, the way school days work, so much of the country we live in is built for married couples with a male breadwinner and a female domestic laborer. Government needs to be massively altered in order to serve this population. -Rebecca Traister

We tell infertile couples all the time that are having trouble conceiving because of the woman not ovulating, 'Just relax. Drink a glass of wine. And don't be so tense and uptight because all that adrenaline can cause you not to ovulate.' -Phil Gingrey

We have so much discrimination in this world – colour, race, creed, all of these things – and there is an issue here that the right of marriage in the civil law is not extended to same-sex couples. -Enda Kenny

It's a bummer interracial love is still such a big deal. To me, it's quite normal. I grew up seeing couples that were interracial. Who cares if it's a black guy and white girl, or an Asian guy and white girl, etc.? Odds are, every combo exists out there somewhere so why not put it on the screen? Shouldn't art imitate life? -Vincent Rodriguez III

'Jack & Diane' was originally about race. I was playing nightclubs, and I was seeing new American couples, mixed-race couples. I thought it was cool. The song was my effort to make a song about that, but of course the record-company guy didn't like it. -John Mellencamp

Sure, men like a challenge – but so do women. And nobody likes to be challenged all the time. I know plenty of long-standing happy couples who slept together right away, spent hours yakking on the phone, split checks down the middle, and lived together for years before the wedding. -Katha Pollitt

A Sunday morning spent reading the paper together, maybe drinking some mimosas, alone, and talking until noon. That would be pretty amazing. Married couples with kids will understand. -Dierks Bentley

Like everybody, I too believed that couples lived happily ever after. But it only happens in books. -Amrita Singh

The rapid growth of prenatal testing has had some undeniably positive effects: A woman who knows she will bear a child with a handicap can plan to deliver in a hospital equipped for risky births. And many couples prefer the opportunity to prepare psychologically for the work of raising a disabled child. -Tucker Carlson

In some ways, Trump's large, national coalition defies easy characterization. He draws from a broad base of good people: kind folks who open their homes and hearts to people of all colors and creeds, married couples with happy homes and families who live nearby, public servants who put their lives on the line to fight fires in their communities. -J. D. Vance

Contempt is the only asymmetrical facial expression, so it's easy to spot once you're aware of its signs. One researcher has successfully tracked it in couples as a predictor of divorce. When someone is angry at you, you've still got traction with them, but when they display contempt, you've been dismissed. -Pamela Meyer

Rob Thomas loves nothing more than for couples to go on dates, and he loves chocolates. Boxes of 20 chocolates. -Nikki Glaser

I always hear some couples can't work together, and I don't get that. We have the most fun when we're working together. -Megan Mullally

I don't know other couples that work together a fraction as much as Nick and I do. We met in a play, and we've done TV and movies, and we just did 'Annapurna,' our off-Broadway show, and we've done theater together several times, so it's just a little bit of everything. -Megan Mullally

I live in Brooklyn, and there's so many interracial couples in Brooklyn. In Brooklyn, you don't talk about race like that. -Jessica Williams

You have to look at what 'Rumours' was, what drove the subject matter. You had two couples who were broken up or breaking up. And probably, you could say, success we had achieved was the catalyst for those breakups. -Lindsey Buckingham

That really was a lot of the appeal of 'Rumours.' The music was wonderful, but the music was also authentic because it was two couples breaking up and writing dialogue to each other. It was also appealing because we were rising to the occasion to follow our destiny. -Lindsey Buckingham

The so-called Defense of Marriage Act is a valueless tradition that, like laws against interracial marriage that were finally overturned by the Supreme Court in 1967, undermines the spirit of love and commitment that couples share and sends the wrong message to society. -Jared Polis

I really believe if you give people a product that couples entertainment with a little bit of education, a soft glove and sense of humor – especially about a subject people have begun to feel very frustrated about, which is the legal system – then you have a formula for success. -Judy Sheindlin

When I think of baths, I generally think of children, the elderly, couples, and the English. Who takes baths? I mean, seriously – none of my friends take baths. -Emily Weiss

One of the things that is so striking to me about the South, especially living here now as an adult, is that I see a lot more mixed-race couples than I saw when I was growing up in the 1980s and the 1990s. I feel like living across the color lines has become something that's more expected. -Jesmyn Ward

Gay marriage is a divisive issue in France, where Fillon has vowed to block adoption by same-sex couples. The battle against Islamism also remains a rallying cry; Fillon's campaign manifesto is called 'Conquering Islamic Totalitarianism'. -Franklin Foer

In 2011, when the General Assembly passed the law allowing civil unions, Illinois took an important step forward to recognize that gay and lesbian couples have the right to build lives together and create strong, loving families. -Lisa Madigan

In every community in Illinois, same-sex couples have chosen to join together and, in many instances, to raise families of their own. These couples are our relatives and friends, our neighbors, co-workers and parents of our children's classmates. They deserve the same rights and responsibilities that civil marriage offers straight couples. -Lisa Madigan

Look around you in any restaurant, and you will see couples, families, and friends glued to their phones. -Shervin Pishevar

Gay couples cannot have children. All they can do is recruit your child. -Franklin Graham

Gorsuch showed his true colors to the LGBTQ community when, in one of his first dissenting opinions on the high court, he advocated limiting the reach of the landmark 2015 marriage equality ruling by denying certain parenting rights to same-sex couples. -Sarah McBride

'Robin's Test' is more contemporary than what I normally do. It's about couples going on a camping holiday for a 50th birthday. Two couples go, and then this other couple were going to come, but they've broken up, and so the man from that couple turns up, but with a new girlfriend that nobody likes – and I'm playing that character. -Julia Davis

After the abrupt death of my mother, Jane, on Sept. 5, 1991, of a disease called amyloidosis, my dad took up golf at 57. He and my mother had always played tennis – a couples' game of mixed doubles and tennis bracelets and Love-Love. But in mourning, Dad turned Job-like to golf, a game of frustration and golf widows and solitary hours on the range. -Steve Rushin

Giving married women an independent legal existence did not destroy heterosexual marriage.

Deciding together to have a child and sharing in child-rearing do not immunize a marriage. Indeed, collaborative couples can face other problems. They often embark on such an intense style of parenting that they end up paying less attention to each other. -Stephanie Coontz

The notion that marriage is an impediment to commitments to the larger community is a long-standing one – and one reason early Christians did not place the institution at the top of their moral hierarchy, complaining that married couples cared more about pleasing each other than doing the Lord's work. -Stephanie Coontz

Most of my favorite fictional couples are distinctly different. Light and dark, good and evil, boring and wild… whatever! They're more fun to experience and definitely more fun to write. You have all these levels, and you know they're not going to react to situations the same way. -Kate Leth

When I was growing up, I never saw couples fight on the family sitcoms I loved to watch. Subsequently, when tough times arose in my own relationship, I wasn't prepared and felt so isolated and alone.

Committed and loving gay and lesbian couples deserve to have their love, their relationships, and their families recognized like everyone else. -Kevin McHale

I knew marriage was not the answer to changing the conditions for poor, black, queer folks. So I never felt compelled to get married – it just didn't seem important. But even if marriage wasn't right for me at the time, or a quick fix toward black empowerment, I found it repulsive that loving same-sex couples were refused the right. -Patrisse Cullors

I think it's really cool that someone could have ovaries and the presidency. Growing up, I thought I could never be president because I was black and female. Now I know that's wrong. Within my own lifetime – that's different. Within my lifetime, interracial couples are more common. Within my own lifetime, biracial folks are able to claim that. -Courtney A. Kemp

I think people do like extremes in cinema. There are very few films told about everyday middle-class couples, which is odd to me, as there are a lot of everyday middle-class couples. -Andrew Haigh

If you look for things your partner does wrong, you can always find something. If you look for what he or she does right, you can always find something, too. It all depends on what you want to look for. Happy couples accentuate the positive. -Mark Goulston

A break-up between couples is traumatic for everyone. -Farhan Akhtar

For a long time, I have been wanting to write a book for singles that would help them in the dating process and in getting ready for marriage. Most of my writing, I've written to couples who are already married, because I've been doing marriage counseling for 35 years. -Gary Chapman
