By    |   Wednesday, 29 Apr 2015 04:44 PM

Evangelist T.D. Jakes is no stranger to the trials and tribulations of love as he and his wife have been married for more than three decades and are parents to five children.

Here are some of the most memorable statements from the Christian leader on love:

1. "No woman wants to be in submission to a man who isn't in submission to God!" - Jakes has repeated this phrase in his sermons on relationships as well as in his best-selling books.

2. "A whole woman will always attract a whole man. When they touch, they will fuse to create a whole marriage. Ultimately, when the time is right, they will produce whole children." - Jakes made the comment in respect to the search for finding a soul mate.

3. "You need to learn how to love imperfect people," he says. "Because if you succeed at loving imperfect people, then it becomes plausible that somebody could love imperfect you." - Jakes made the statement during an appearance on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" where they discussed accepting that no one is perfect and love doesn't have to be flawless, according to The Huffington Post.

4. "It takes courage to really love someone. Deciding to love gets harder as you get older. It's more and more difficult to fall in love because your 'faller' gets broken. We've all had relationships that didn't work out for one reason or another. The loss of a relationship can be a traumatic experience and can affect us in our lives for months and sometimes for years. You need to understand what role you played in the relationship's demise, and work to come to peace with your partner's behavior as well as your own. No matter what has happened to you, the only hope of a healthy future relationship is to let go of the past." - The excerpt was taken from Jakes column in The Huffington Post on "Biblical Lessons on Relationships."

5. Jakes brought talk show host Oprah Winfrey to tears with the statement about what he calls the "10-gallon capacity for love."

"Some parents are not capable of giving an outpouring of love to their children because they have a 'pint-sized capacity' and cannot fill those who have a '10-gallon capacity to love.'"

Winfrey said the statement made her think about her own relationship with her mother, reports The Christian Post.
