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

I was given such a great gift. It's a miracle that never stops amazing me and reminding me to give thanks, every day. Having a wife and daughter gives me a lot more purpose. I was much more selfish before, but now I think about what kind of role model I'll be. I just want to be a better man.
Jake Owen

A good wife is one who serves her husband in the morning like a mother does, loves him in the day like a sister does and pleases him like a prostitute in the night.

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 real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.
Frank Abagnale
