    Marriage quotes by:    

Marriage is an adventure, like going to war.

    Author: G.K. Chesterton

Marriage is not a union, merely between two creatures - it is a union between two spirits; and the intention of that bond is to perfect the nature of both, by supplementing their deficiencies with the force of contrast, giving to each sex those excellencies in which it is naturally deficient.

    Author: Frederick W. Robertson

One of the good things that come of a true marriage is, that there is one face on which changes come without your seeing them; or rather there is one face which you can still see the same, through all the shadows which years have gathered upon it.

    Author: George Macdonald

Wholly abstain or wed.

    Author: George Herbert

It is not marriage that fails; it is people that fail. All that marriage does is to show them up.

    Author: Harry Emerson Fosdick

If you treat your wife like a thoroughbred, you'll never end up with a nag.

    Author: Zig Ziglar

Many marriages would be better if the husband and the wife clearly understood that they are on the same side.

    Author: Zig Ziglar

The thing needed to women (and to men too) is these friendships without love between men and women. And if between married men and married women, all the better.

    Author: Florence Nightingale

The Puritan ethic of marriage was first to look not for a partner whom you do love passionately at this moment but rather for one whom you can love steadily as your best friend for life, then to proceed with God's help to do just that.

    Author: J.I. Packer

Marriage is the mother of the world. It preserves kingdoms, and fills cities and churches, and heaven itself.

    Author: Jeremy Taylor

She that hath a wise husband must entice him to an eternal dearness by the veil of modesty and the grave robes of chastity, the ornament of meekness, and the jewels of faith and charity. She must have no painting but blushings; her brightness must be purity, and she must shine round about with sweetness and friendship; and she shall be pleasant while she lives, and desired when she dies.

    Author: Jeremy Taylor

Celibacy, like the fly in the heart of an apple, dwells in perpetual sweetness, but sits alone, and is confined and dies in singularity; but marriage, like the useful bee, builds a house, and gathers sweetness from every flower, and labors and unites into societies and republics, and sends out colonies, and feeds the world with delicacies, and keeps order, and exercises many virtues, and promotes the interest of mankind, and is that state of good to which God hath designed the present constitution of the world.
