“Qué error fatal poner el amor en el centro del matrimonio, amor y matrimonio no tienen nada que ver, amor y familia no tienen nada que ver, los sentimientos entre un hombre y una mujer, dentro de ese dispositivo, solo pueden esfumarse.”
Yasmina Reza

“La coppia è la prova più terribile che Dio possa affliggerci.”
Yasmina Reza, The God of Carnage
