Pope Paul VI's Beautiful Words Concerning the Union of Husband and Wife

It is a love which is total—that very special form of personal friendship in which husband and wife generously share everything, allowing no unreasonable exceptions and not thinking solely of their own convenience. Whoever really loves his partner loves not only for what he receives, but loves that partner for the partner's own sake, content to be able to enrich the other with the gift of himself.
 — Pope Paul VI, from his encyclical Humanae Vitae [9]
