Wife Quotations

A successful man is one who makes more money than his wife can spend. A successful woman is one who can find such a man.
Lana Turner

The real act of marriage takes place in the heart, not in the ballroom or church or synagogue. It's a choice you make - not just on your wedding day, but over and over again - and that choice is reflected in the way you treat your husband or wife.
Barbara de Angelis

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 home with a loving and loyal husband and wife is the supreme setting in which children can be reared in love and righteousness and in which the spiritual and physical needs of children can be met.
