When a wife has a good husband it is easily seen in her face.Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
It is easier to be a lover than a husband for the simple reason that it is more difficult to be witty every day than to say pretty things from time to time.Honoré de Balzac
The curse which lies upon marriage is that too often the individuals are joined in their weakness rather than in their strength --each asking from the other instead of finding pleasure in giving. It is even more deceptive to dream of gaining through the child a plenitude, a warmth, a value, which one is unable to create for oneself; the child brings joy only to the woman who is capable of disinterestedly desiring the happiness of another, to one who without being wrapped up in self seeks to transcend her own existence.Simone de Beauvoir
The real act of marriage takes place in the heart, not in the ballroom or church or synagogue. It's a choice you make -- not just on your wedding day, but over and over again -- and that choice is reflected in the way you treat your husband or wife.Barbara De Angelis
Well married a person has wings, poorly married shackles.Henry Ward Beecher
It is always incomprehensible to a man that a woman should ever refuse an offer of marriage.Jane Austen
When a match has equal partners then I fear not.Aeschylus
Therefore shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh. -- Genesis 2:24
All tragedies are finished by a death, all comedies by a marriage.George Gordon Noel Byron, 6th Baron Byron
Marriage is not a noun; it's a verb. It isn't something you get. It's something you do. It's the way you love your partner every day.Barbara De Angelis
Incompatibility. In matrimony a similarity of tastes, particularly the taste for domination.Ambrose Bierce
I think like any marriage, especially when you've had divorced parents like myself, you'd want to try even harder to make it work.Diana, Princess of Wales
When you're a married man, Samivel, you'll understand a good many things as you don't understand now; but whether it's worth while, going through so much, to learn so little, as the charity-boy said when he got to the end of the alphabet, is a matter o taste.Charles Dickens
The betrothed and accepted lover has lost the wildest charms of his maiden by her acceptance. She was heaven while he pursued her, but she cannot be heaven if she stoops to one such as he!Ralph Waldo Emerson
Wives are young men's mistresses; companions for middle age, and old men's nurses.Francis Bacon
Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave himself up for her. -- Ephesians 5:25
Who finds a wife finds a good thing, and obtains favor with the Lord.
As a general thing, when the woman wears the pants in the family, she has a good right to them.Josh Billings
Rituals are important. Nowadays it's hip not to be married. I'm not interested in being hip.John Lennon
Like everything which is not the involuntary result of fleeting emotion but the creation of time and will, any marriage, happy or unhappy, is infinitely more interesting than any romance, however passionate.W. H. Auden
Marriage is not just spiritual communion, it is also remembering to take out the trash.Joyce Brothers
To marry unequally is to suffer equally.Henri-Frédéric Amiel
The dread of loneliness is greater than the fear of bondage, so we get married.Cyril Connolly
A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person.Mignon McLaughlin
In marriage there are no manners to keep up, and beneath the wildest accusations no real criticism. Each is familiar with that ancient child in the other who may erupt again. We are not ridiculous to ourselves. We are ageless. That is the luxury of the wedding ring.Enid Bagnold
