The web of marriage is made by propinquity in the day to day living, side by side, looking outward and working in the same direction. It is woven in space and in time of the substance of life itself.

When the heart is flooded with love there is no room in it for fear, for doubt, for hesitation. And it is this lack of fear that makes for the dance.

Anne Morrow Lindbergh 1906 – 2001

Let the wife make the husband glad to come home, and let him make her sorry to see him leave.

Mark Twain 1835 – 1910

Love seems the swiftest, but it is the slowest of all growths. No man or woman really knows what perfect love is until they have been married a quarter of a century.
Mark Twain 1835 – 1910

V Marriage Quotes

When two people fall in love they seek to possess the object of their desire and to be united with it and to hold on to it forever. In the confident illusion that this will happen, a bride and groom may promise on their wedding day ‘to love and cherish till death do us part.’ but from the first day of the honeymoon they will discover that husbands and wives can not possess each other. Then over the years they may learn, as they clash and quarrel and forgive, to respect each other as unique persons and to set each other free.
Stephen Verney 1919 – 2009

The value of marriage is not that adults produce children, but that children produce adults.
Peter De Vries 1910

W Marriage Quotes

The most wonderful of all things in life, I believe, is the discovery of another human being with whom one’s relationship has a growing depth, beauty and joy as the years increase.
This inner progressiveness of love between two human beings is a most marvellous thing, it cannot be found by looking for it, or by passionately wishing for it. It is a sort of Divine accident and the most wonderful of all things in life.

Hugh Walpole

A good marriage is like Dr Who’s Tardis.. Small and banal from the outside, but spacious and interesting from within.
Katherine Whitehorn 1928

A relationship is not meant to be the joining at the hip of two emotional invalids. The purpose of a relationship is not for two incomplete people to become one, but rather, for two complete people to join together for the greater glory of God.
Marianne Williamson 1952

Relationships are part of a vast plan for our enlightenment, the Holy Spirit’s blueprint by which each individual Soul is led to greater awareness and expanded love. Relationships are the Holy Spirit’s laboratories in which He brings together people who have the maximal opportunity for mutual growth.
Marianne Williamson 1952

A strong marriage rarely has two strong people at the same time. It is a husband and wife who take turns being strong for each other in the moments when the other feels weak.
Asley Willis

A healthy relationship will never require you to sacrifice your happiness, your family and friends, your dreams or your dignity.

Marriage are made in Heaven.

No matter how old you both get, never stop holding hands, never stop dancing and never stop saying ‘I love you.’

No relationship is all sunshine. But two people can share one umbrella and survive the storm together.

The Marriage Box
Most people get married believing a myth that marriage is a beautiful box full of all the things they have longed for; companionship, intimacy, friendship etc.. The truth is, that marriage at the start is an empty box, you must put something in before you can take anything out. There is no love in marriage, love is in people, and people put love in marriage. There is no romance in marriage, you have to infuse it into your marriage. A couple must learn the art, and form the habit of giving, loving, serving, praising, of keeping the box full. If you take out more than you put in, the box will be empty.

Two things doth prolong thy life..
A quiet heart and a loving wife.
