Marriage quotes

A marriage is no amusement but a solemn act, and generally a sad one.

- Victoria, Queen

There are three rings involved with marriage. The engagement ring, the wedding ring, and the suffering.

- Woody Allen

Character is another thing that is formed in youth and reformed in marriage.


Marriage is a romance in which the hero dies in the first chapter.


Love, the strongest and deepest element in all life, the harbinger of hope, of joy, of ecstasy; love, the defier of all laws, of all conventions; love, the freest, the most powerful molder of human destiny; how can such an all-compelling force be synonymous with that poor little State and Church-begotten weed, marriage?

- Goldman, Emma

O curse of marriage that we can call these delicate creatures ours and not their appetites!

- Shakespeare, William

The sum and substance of female education in America, as in England, is training women to consider marriage as the sole object in life, and to pretend that they do not think so.

- Martineau, Harriet

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.

- Beauvoir, Simone De

Marriage brings one into fatal connection with custom and tradition, and traditions and customs are like the wind and weather, altogether incalculable.

- Kierkegaard, S°ren

Successful marriage is always a triangle: a man, a woman, and God.

- Myers, Cecil

The deep, deep peace of the double-bed after the hurly-burly of the chaise-lounge.

- Campbell, Mrs Patrick

That a marriage ends is less than ideal; but all things end under heaven, and if temporality is held to be invalidating, then nothing real succeeds.

- Updike, John

In mid-life the man wants to see how irresistible he still is to younger women. How they turn their hearts to stone and more or less commit a murder of their marriage I just don't know, but they do.

- Neal, Patricia

For it is mutual trust, even more than mutual interest that holds human associations together. Our friends seldom profit us but they make us feel safe... Marriage is a scheme to accomplish exactly that same end.

- H. L. Mencken

There is nothing nobler or more admirable than when two people who see eye to eye keep house as man and wife, confounding their enemies and delighting their friends.

- Homer

Accident counts for as much in companionship as in marriage.

- Adams, Henry Brooks

Love in marriage should be the accomplishment of a beautiful dream, and not, as it too often is, the end.

- Alphonse Karr

I have wedded her, not bedded her; and sworn to make the'not'eternal.

- William Shakespeare

Love, n - A temporary insanity curable by marriage.

- Ambrose Bierce

The ancient saying is no heresy, hanging and wiving goes by destiny.

- William Shakespeare
