Short Link to this Quote:
The quote is making a humorous comparison between love and debt in marriage. It suggests that many married couples focus more energy on accumulating debt than on maintaining the love in their relationship.
Being “deeply in debt” often requires work, sacrifice and commitment to pay off debts – the quote implies marriage would be improved if couples dedicated similar effort to staying in love through actively nurturing their emotional and romantic bond.
So it’s using debt as a metaphor to highlight how prioritizing finances over intimacy could undermine what should be the core of a marriage.
