Marriage Quotes

The Declaration of Independence states that all men are created equal, and in 1776, that's exactly what they meant. Women could not vote, women could not own property, and blacks were considered property. After 200 years of enlightenment, we have realized that gender and race are inappropriate distinctions for determining who has individual rights. Anytime Gov gives you permission they let you know that you have permission by giving you a permit or a license. If you have a marriage license, what permission do you have to do now that you did not have permission to do before, who gave you that permission, and who gave them the authority to give you that permission in the first place?

Michael J. Badnarik

In 5,000 years of recorded human history... neither in the east or in the west... has any society ever defined marriage as anything other than between men and women. Not one in 5000 years of recorded human history. That's an astounding fact and it isn't until the last 12 years or so that we have seen for the first time in recorded human history marriage defined as anything other than between men and between women.

Michele Bachmann

Marriage is good enough for the lower classes: they have facilities for desertion that are denied to us.

George Bernard Shaw

Happiness in marriage is entirely a matter of chance.

Jane Austen

As you become older, you become less judgmental and take offense less. But marriage is hard work; the illusion that you get married and live happily ever after is absolute rubbish.

Before marriage, a girl has to make love to a man to hold on to him. After marriage, she has to hold on to him to make love to him.

Marilyn Monroe

After marriage, husband and wife become two sides of a coin; they just can't face each other, but still they stay together.

Hemant Joshi

A happy marriage is a new beginning of life, a new starting point for happiness and usefulness.

Dean Stanley

Marriage: that I call the will of two to create the one who is more than those who created it.

Friedrich Nietzsche

Marriage is ever made by destiny.

George Chapman

Marriage is the perfection of what love aimed at, ignorant of what it sought.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Chains do not hold a marriage together. It is threads, hundreds of tiny threads which sew people together through the years.

Simone Signoret

Marriage, like death, is a debt we owe to nature.

Julia Ward Howe

Family life is full of major and minor crises -- the ups and downs of health, success and failure in career, marriage, and divorce -- and all kinds of characters. It is tied to places and events and histories. With all of these felt details, life etches itself into memory and personality. It's difficult to imagine anything more nourishing to the soul.
