Marriage Quotes

What counts in making a happy marriage is not so much how compatible you are, but how you deal with incompatibility.

Leo Nikolaevich Tolstoy

The heart of marriage is memories; and if the two of you happen to have the same ones and can savor your reruns, then your marriage is a gift from the gods.

Bill Cosby

If you want to read about love and marriage, you've got to buy two separate books.

Marriage is not a simple love affair, it's an ordeal, and the ordeal is the sacrifice of ego to a relationship in which two have become one

Joseph Campbell

Often the difference between a successful marriage and a mediocre one consists of leaving about three or four things a day unsaid.

Harlan Miller

God's great cosmic joke on the human race was requiring that men and women live together in marriage

Mark Twain

Marriage is that relation between man and woman in which the independence is equal, the dependence mutual, and the obligation reciprocal.

Louis K. Anspacher

Success in marriage does not come merely through finding the right mate, but through being the right mate.

Tom Mullen

Marriage is like pi - natural, irrational, and very important.

Lisa Hoffman

Marriage must incessantly contend with a monster that devours everything: familiarity.

Honore de Balzac

On rare occasions one does hear of a miraculous case of a married couple falling in love after marriage, but on close examination it will be found that it is a mere adjustment to the inevitable.

Emma Goldman

Marriage," "mating," and "love" are socially constructed phenomena that have little or no transferable meaning outside any given culture. The examples we've noted of rampant ritualized group sex, mate-swapping, unrestrained casual affairs, and socially sanctioned sequential sex were all reported in cultures that anthropologists insist are monogamous simply because they've determined that something they call "marriage" takes place there. No wonder so many insist that marriage, monogamy, and the nuclear family are human universals. With such all-encompassing interpretations of the concepts, even the prairie vole, who "sleeps with anyone," would qualify.

Christopher Ryan

We hear of the conversion of water into wine at the marriage in Cana as of a miracle. But this conversion is, through the goodness of God, made every day before our eyes. Behold the rain which descends from heaven upon our vineyards, and which incorporates itself with the grapes, to be changed into wine; a constant proof that God loves us, and loves to see us happy.

Benjamin Franklin

To keep your marriage brimming, with love in the wedding cup, whenever you're wrong, admit it; whenever you're right, shut up.

Ogden Nash

There is no more lovely, friendly and charming relationship, communion or company than a good marriage.

Martin Luther

A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person.

Germaine Greer

A marriage...makes of two fractional lives a whole; it gives to two purposeless lives a work, and doubles the strength of each to perform it; it gives to two questioning natures a reason for living, and something to live for; it will give a new gladness to the sunshine, a new fragrance to the flowers, a new beauty to the earth, and a new mystery to life.

Mark Twain

Love: a temporary insanity, curable by marriage.

Ambrose Bierce

The only cure for love is marriage

Irish Sayings

The secret of a happy marriage remains a secret.

Henry Youngman

Marriage is one long conversation, checkered by disputes.

Robert Louis Stevenson

A good marriage is that in which each appoints the other guardian of his solitude
