Marriage Quotes

More belongs to marriage than four legs in a bed.

Thomas Fuller

I have yet to hear a man ask for advice on how to combine marriage and a career.

Gloria Steinem

Chains do not hold a marriage together. It is threads, hundreds of tiny threads which sew people together through the years. That is what makes a marriage last --more than passion or even sex!

Simone Signoret

Marriage is the triumph of hope over experience.

Samuel Johnson

Marriage is a matter of give and take, but so far I haven't been able to find anybody who'll take what I have to give.

Cass Daley

All tragedies are finished by a death, all comedies by a marriage.

Lord Byron

A good marriage is like a casserole, only those responsible for it really know what goes in it.

Anonymous

Marriage is more than four bare legs in a bed.

Hoshang N. Akhtar

The friendship between a man and a woman which does not lead to marriage or desire for marriage may be a life long experience of the greatest value to themselves and to all their circle of acquaintance and of activity; but for this type of friendship both a rare man and a rare woman are needed. Perhaps it should be added that either the man or the woman thus deeply bound in lifelong friendship who seeks marriage must find a still rarer man or woman to wed, to make such a three cornered comradeship a permanent success.

Anna Garlin Spencer

Grief and greed are as inextricably entwined as love and marriage should be.

Ann Kent

Love is an ideal thing, marriage a real thing; a confusion of the real with the ideal never goes unpunished

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Sex outside marriage is sin; sex within marriage is not sin.

Bertrand Russell

A happy marriage has in it all the pleasures of a friendship, all the enjoyments of sense and reason, and indeed, all the sweets of life.

The goal in marriage is not to think alike, but to think together.

Robert C. Dodds

A good marriage is one which allows for change and growth in the individuals and in the way they express their love.

Pearl S. Buck

Marriage has no guarantees. If that's what you're looking for, go live with a car battery.

Marriage is not a ritual or an end. It is a long, intricate, intimate dance together and nothing matters more than your own sense of balance and your choice of partner.

Amy Bloom

Marriage is give and take. You'd better give it to her or she'll take it anyway.

Joey Adams

Joseph Addison 1672

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.
