Sample Quotes on Marriage:

Marry your best friend. I do not say that lightly. Really, truly find the strongest, happiest friendship in the person you fall in love with. Someone who speaks highly of you. Someone you can laugh with. The kind of laughs that make your belly ache, and your nose snort. The embarrassing, earnest, healing kind of laughs. Wit is

important. Life is too short not to love someone who lets you be a fool with them. Make sure they are somebody who lets you cry, too. Despair will come. Find

someone that you want to be there with you through those times. Most importantly, marry the one that makes passion, love, and madness combine and course through you. A love that will never dilute—even when the waters get deep, and dark.

—N’tima Preusser

The young man who wants to marry happily should pick out a good mother and marry one of her daughters—any one will do.

--J. Ogden Armour

When I had told my mother that I was going to get married, she went to see my

fiancée, and when the latter opened the door to her, my mother looked at her for

a moment, although she had known her for quite a long time, as though she had

an unfamiliar person in front of her....It was a silent communication....At that

moment my mother gave up her place, and gave me up, too, to my wife. This was what my mother’s expression said: he is no longer mine, he is yours. What silent

injunctions, what sadness and what happiness, what fear and hope, what

renunciation there was in this expression!

--Eugene Ionesco

You marry the person who is available when you are most vulnerable.

--K. Berwick

When one thinks how many people there are that one does not in the least want to marry, and how many there are that do not in the least want to marry one, and how small one’s social circle really is, any marriage at all seems a miracle.

--Barry Pain

All husbands are alike, but they have different faces so you can tell them apart.

--Ogden Nash

Remember, it is as easy to marry a rich woman as a poor woman.

--William Makepeace Thackeray

Since marriage, which is a human institution invented for purely practical purposes, is so frail and so full of stumbling-blocks, how is it that so many marriages hold together? They do so because both partners have one interest in common, the thing for which nature has always intended marriage, namely children.

--August Strindberg

Husbands are like fires. They go out if unattended.

--Zsa Zsa Gabor

If they only married when they fell in love, most people would die unwed.

--Robert Louis Stevenson

We sleep in separate rooms, we have dinner apart, we take separate vacations—we’re doing everything we can to keep our marriage together.

--Rodney Dangerfield

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

--Barnett Brickner

Don’t smother each other. No one can grow in the shade.

—Leo Buscaglia

Trouble is part of your life, and if you don’t share it, you don’t give the person who loves you a chance to love you enough.

—Dinah Shore

The most important career decision you’re going to make is whether or not you have a life partner and who that partner is.

--Sheryl Sandberg


Most people get married believing a myth that marriage is a beautiful box full of all the things they have longed for: companionship, intimacy, friendship etc. The truth is that marriage at the start is an empty box. You must put something in before you can take anything out. There is no love in marriage. Love is in people. And people put love in marriage. There is no romance in marriage. You have to infuse it into your marriage. A couple must learn the art and form the habit of giving, loving, serving, praising, of keeping the box full. If you take out more than you put in, the box will be empty.


As Anne-Marie puts it in her new book, Unfinished Business, ‘This is the dirty

little secret that women leaders who come together in places like Fortune

magazine’s annual Most Powerful Women Summit don’t talk about: the necessity

of a primary caregiver spouse.’ A female business executive willing to do what it takes to get to the top—go on every trip, meet every client, accept every promotion, even pick up and move to a new location when asked—needs what male CEOs have always had: a spouse who bears most of the burden at home.

—Andrew Moravcsik
