Marriage Quotations

Happy is the man who finds a true friend, and far happier is he who finds that true friend in his wife.
Franz Schubert

A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person.
Mignon McLaughlin

By all means, marry. If you get a good wife, you'll become happy; if you get a bad one, you'll become a philosopher.

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