Story behind the song

Marx wrote "Now and Forever" about his wife, actress Cynthia Rhodes.[2] He has been quoted as saying: "I was working on the fourth album and realized I had not written a song addressing our relationship since we had gotten married and had three kids. I think this is one of those songs which was unique in that the verses are so specific to our relationship."[2]
