Marry Quotations

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.

Don't marry the person you think you can live with; marry only the individual you think you can't live without.
James Dobson

My most brilliant achievement was my ability to be able to persuade my wife to marry me.
Winston Churchill

People should be allowed to marry, and gay marriage should be out there. If a man or a woman has a good partner and they love each other with their heart and soul, let them marry. I am very much for gay marriage.
Pierce Brosnan

Another argument, vaguer and even less persuasive, is that gay marriage somehow does harm to heterosexual marriage. I have yet to meet anyone who can explain to me what this means. In what way would allowing same-sex partners to marry diminish the marriages of heterosexual couples?
Ted Olson
