    Marriage Quotes

    Quotations about Marriage

    • I know nothing about sex because I was always married.
    • Happiness just wasn't part of the job description back then. You tried to find a helpmate to keep the cold wind and dogs at bay. Happiness just wasn't part of the equation. Survival was.
      Northern Exposure, Burning Down the House, 1992, by Robin Green
    • The conception of two people living together for twenty-five years without having a cross word suggests a lack of spirit only to be admired in sheep.
    • There is no observation more frequently made by such as employ themselves in surveying the conduct of mankind, than that marriage, though the dictate of nature, and the institution of Providence, is yet very often the cause of misery, and that those who enter into that state can seldom forbear to express their repentance, and their envy of those whom either chance or caution hath withheld from it.
      Rambler #18, by Samuel Johnson
    • Such is the common process of marriage. A youth and maiden exchange meeting by chance, or brought together by artifice, exchange glances, reciprocate civilities, go home, and dream of one another. Having little to divert attention, or diversify thought, they find themselves uneasy when they are apart, and therefore conclude that they shall be happy together. They marry, and discover what nothing but voluntary blindness had before concealed; they wear out life in altercations, and charge nature with cruelty.
      Rasselas, by Samuel Johnson
    • All married couples should learn the art of battle as they should learn the art of making love. Good battle is objective and honest - never vicious or cruel. Good battle is healthy and constructive, and brings to a marriage the principle of equal partnership.
    • A simple enough pleasure, surely, to have breakfast alone with one's husband, but how seldom married people in the midst of life achieve it.
    • American women expect to find in their husbands a perfection that English women only hope to find in their butlers.
      The Razor's Edge, 1943, by William Somerset Maugham
    • A successful marriage is an edifice that must be rebuilt every day.
    • A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person.
