“I don’t care if you’re 13 or 14 or 37 it doesn’t matter when you find that person that takes your heart, you’re committed, and I think we found it early.” -Vinnie 



“Whether it was the pick-up line for your kid or a walk around the neighborhood at night or on the boat… whether you’re pulling a trap up, lobster or a crab trap. Doing what you had to do but making sure you had that time to connect. -Matthew 



“Why step on a landmine if you know its a landmine, that’s insanity, I know I’m going to get hurt and I’m going to do it anyways” -Matthew 


“The greatest predictors of divorce or a relationship falling apart is when spouses can not accept influence from each other or are not willing to” -Matthew
