on marriage.

' I was thinking about my wife June and I, how we share everything. When we're cut we both bleed. When one of us is hit we both hurt. When you're married, you're one. Ane whether its a soulmate marriage, or a holy matrimony marriage in a church, its all the same you know. If you're bonded to someone you love then you pull together as one.'
Johny Cash, on his marriage to June Carter Cash.
