Love and Marriage Quotes
Love is moral even without legal marriage, but marriage is immoral without love.
- Quote by Ellen Key
Where there's marriage without love, there will be love without marriage.
- Quote by Benjamin Franklin Quotes
Marriage is the perfection of what love aimed at, ignorant of what it sought.
- Quote by by Emerson
The kind of marriage you make depends upon the kind of person you are. If you are a happy, well-adjusted person, the chances are your marriage will be a happy one. If you have made adjustments so far with more satisfaction than distress, you are likely to make your marriage and family adjustments satisfactorily. If you are discontented and bitter about your lot in life, you will have to change before you can expect to live happily ever after.
- Quote by Evelyn Duvall and Reuben Hill Quotes
Opposites attract, but after marriage, opposites attack. Most of the time, we are attracted to people who don't have the things that we have. Incompatibility is why we get married, but it's also used as a reason to divorce.
Incompatibility is just a lack of communication. If we just try to love [our spouse] the way we want to be loved, we are in trouble. Unless you communicate, it's difficult to know how to love another person.
- Quote by Dr. Charles Lowery
One should believe in marriage as in the immortality of the soul.
- Quote by Honore deBalzac
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.
- Quotes by Barbara De Angelis
Love is life. And if you miss love, you miss life.
- Quote by Leo Buscaglia
The friendship between a man and a woman which does not lead to marriage or desire for marriage may be a life long experience of the greatest value to themselves and to all their circle of acquaintance and of activity; but for this type of friendship both a rare man and a rare woman are needed. Perhaps it should be added that either the man or the woman thus deeply bound in lifelong friendship who seeks marriage must find a still rarer man or woman to wed, to make such a three cornered comradeship a permanent success.
- Quotes by Anna Garlin Spencer
Love is blind, but marriage restores its sight.
- Quote by Georg C. Lichtenberg
Marriage has in it less of beauty, but more of safety, than the single life; it hath not more ease, but less danger; it is more merry and more sad; it is fuller of sorrows and fuller of joys; it lies under more burdens, but is supported by all the strengths of love and charity; and those burdens are delightful. Marriage is the mother of the world, and preserves kingdoms, and fills cities and churches, and heaven itself.
- Quote by Jeremy Taylor
There is no more lovely, friendly, charming relationship, communion or company than a good marriage.
- Quote by Martin Luther
What counts in making a happy marriage is not so much how compatible you are, but how you deal with incompatibility.
- Quote by Leo Nikolaevich Tolstoy
For two people in a marriage to live together day after day is unquestionably the one miracle the Vatican has overlooked.
- Quote by Bill Cosby
It is not a lack of love, but a lack of friendship that makes unhappy marriages.
- Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
The love we have in our youth is superficial compared to the love that an old man has for his old wife.
- Quote by Will Durant
A good marriage is one which allows for change and growth in the individuals and in the way they express their love.
- Quotes by Pearl S. Buck
A happy marriage has in it all the pleasures of friendships, all the enjoyment of sense and reason - and indeed all the sweets of life.
- Quotes by Joseph Addison
A happy man marries the girl he loves; a happier man loves the girl he marries.
Love: a temporary insanity, curable by marriage.
- Quote by Ambrose Bierce
Every marriage tends to consist of an aristocrat and a peasant.
- Quote by John Updike Quotes
Chains do not hold a marriage together. It is threads, hundreds of tiny threads which sew people together through the years. That is what makes a marriage last... more than passion or even sex!
- Quote by Quote by Simone Signoret
Love is an ideal thing, marriage a real thing.
- Quote by sGoethe
All married couples should learn the art of battle as they should learn the art of making love. Good battle is objective and honest - never vicious or cruel. Good battle is healthy and constructive, and brings to a marriage the principle of equal partnership.
- Quotes by Ann Landers
A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, and always with the same person.
- Quote by Mignon McLaughlin
The more you invest in a marriage, the more valuable it becomes.
- Quote by Amy Grant
We only regard those unions as real examples of love and real marriages in which a fixed and unalterable decision has been taken. If men or women contemplate an escape, they do not collect all their powers for the task. In none of the serious and important tasks of life do we arrange such a "getaway." We cannot love and be limited.
- Quote by Alfred Adler
To keep your marriage brimming,
With love in the loving cup,
Whenever you're wrong admit it;
Whenever you're right shut up.
- Quotes by Ogden Nash Quotes
