Marriage resembles a pair of shears, so joined that they cannot be separated; often moving in opposite directions, yet always punishing any one who comes between them.
Sydney Smith

Marrying for love may be a bit risky, but it is so honest that God can't help but smile on it.
Josh Billings

A man in love is incomplete until he has married. Then he's finished.

When I meet a man I ask myself, 'Is this the man I want my children to spend their weekends with?'
Rita Rudner

Marriage: A word which should be pronounced "mirage";.
Herbert Spencer

The difficulty with marriage is that we fall in love with a personality, but must live with a character.
Peter De Vries

Marriage is a bribe to make the housekeeper think she's a householder.
Thornton Wilder

Happiness just wasn't part of the job description back then. You tried to find a helpmate to keep the cold wind and dogs at bay. Happiness just wasn't part of the equation. Survival was.
