Marriage quotes page 2

If the wife has to prove her loyalty and undivided devotion to her husband, so has the
husband to prove his allegiance and devotion to his wife. You cannot have one set of weights
and measures for the one and a different one for the other.
Mahatma Gandhi

A man is incomplete until he is married. After that, he is finished.
Zsa Zsa Gabor

I do not want a husband who honours me as a queen, if he does not love me as a woman.
Elizabeth I

marriage contract is one of the most sacred in the world.
Harry Truman

Keep your eyes wide open before marriage, half shut afterwards.
Benjamin Franklin

Making assumptions in our relationships is really asking for problems. Often we make the
assumption that our partners know what we think and that we don't have to say what we
want, because they know us so well. If they don't do what we assume they should do, we
feel hurt and say, "You should have known."
Don Miguel Ruiz

The clever wife makes her husband an apron.
French proverb

A good marriage is one which allows for change and growth in the individuals and in the way
they express their love.
Pearl S. Buck

Age and marriage tame man and beast.
American proverb

You may marry the man of your dreams, but fourteen years later, you're married to a couch
that burps.
Roseanne Barr

Let us now set forth one of the fundamental truths about marriage: the wife is in charge.

A man who marries a woman to educate her falls a victim to the same fallacy as the woman
who marries a man to reform him.
Elbert Hubbard

The triumph of hope over experience.
Samuel Johnson, on second marriages

Healthy relationships are based on one thing - healthy communication, otherwise known as
assertive, or to get right to the point - adult communication.
Connie Podesta

It is a splendid thing to think that the woman you really love will never grow old to you.
Through the wrinkles of time, through the mask of years, if you really love her, you will
always see the face you love and won. And a woman who really loves a man does not see
that he grows old; he is not decrepit to her; she always sees the same gallant gentleman
who won her hand and heart.
Robert G. Ingersoll

In disagreements with loved ones, deal only with the current situation. Don't bring up the
past.
Dalai Lama

Another ingredient in a happy marriage: Budget the luxuries first!
Robert A. Heinlein

Never try to make your wife or husband over. These attempts are always foolish and tend to
destroy the pride and self esteem of the other. Moreover, it arouses a spirit of resentment
that proves fatal to the marriage bond. Cease trying to make the other a second edition of
yourself.
Joseph Murphy

It is not a lack of love, but a lack of friendship that makes unhappy marriages.
Friedrich Nietzsche

First of all you've got to have talent. And then you've got to marry her like I did.
George Burns

It's better to have a good divorce than a bad marriage.
Larry Winget

What counts in making a happy marriage is not so much how compatible you are but how you
deal with incompatibility.
Leo Tolstoy

The only cure for love is marriage.
Irish proverb

It's hard to communicate anything exactly and that's why perfect relationships between
people are difficult to find.
Gustave Flaubert

An archaeologist is the best husband a woman can have;
the older she gets, the more interested he is in her.
Agatha Christie

A man not honorable in his marital relations is not usually honorable in any other.
Harry Truman

The sum which two married people owe to one another defies calculation. It is an infinite
debt, which can only be discharged through all eternity.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Marry above your match and you get a master.
Scottish proverb

Marriage is popular because it combines the maximum of temptation with the maximum of
opportunity.
George Bernard Shaw

Seeking women's approval gives women the power to set the tone of the relationship. Nice
Guys constantly report that their own moods are often tied to the moods of their partner. If
she is happy and doing OK, so is he. If she is angry, depressed, or stressed, he will feel
anxious until she feels better. This connection runs so deep that many Nice Guys have told
me that they feel guilty if they are in a good mood when their partner is not.
Robert A. Glover

I married beneath me, all women do.
Nancy Astor

Some people claim that marriage interferes with romance. There's no doubt about it. Anytime
you have a romance, your wife is bound to interfere.
Groucho Marx

Whatever your woman is into, you better be into. Whatever your man is into, you better be
into. Your partner into church, you better be into church. Your man or woman a crackhead,
you better be a crackhead. Otherwise it just won't work.
Chris Rock
