      - Helen Rowland

The honeymoon is not actually over until we cease to stifle our yawns.
      - Helen Rowland

A light wife doth make a heavy husband.
      - William Shakespeare

As a walled town is more worthier than a village, so is the forehead of a married man more honorable than the bare brow of a bachelor.

Those who talk most about the blessings of marriage and the constancy of its vows are the very people who declare that if the chain were broken and the prisoners were left free to choose, the whole social fabric would fly asunder. You can't have the argument both ways. If the prisoner is happy, why lock him in? If he is not, why pretend that he is?
      - George Bernard Shaw, Man and Superman

Marriage is popular because it combines the maximum of temptation with the maximum of opportunity.

My advice to you is get married: if you find a good wife you'll be happy; if not, you'll become a philosopher.
      - Socrates

A man may be cheerful and contented in celibacy, but I do not think he can ever be happy; it is an unnatural state, and the best feelings of his nature are never called into action.
      - Robert Southey

I would say that the surest measure of a man's or a woman's maturity is the harmony, style, joy, and dignity he creates in his marriage, and the pleasure and inspiration he provides for his spouse.
      - Benjamin Spock

The most unhappy circumstance of all is, when each party is always laying up fuel for dissension, and gathering together a magazine of provocations to exasperate each other with when they are out of humor.
      - Sir Richard Steele

I can't mate in captivity.
      - Gloria Steinem

Women's total instinct for gambling is satisfied by marriage.
      - Gloria Steinem

I've given my memoirs far more thought than any of my marriages. You can't divorce a book.
      - Gloria Swanson,
        quoted in the New York "Times"

A good wife is heaven's last best gift to man; his angel and minister of graces innumerable; his gem of many virtues; his casket of jewels; her voice his sweet music; her smiles his brightest day; her kiss the guardian of his innocence; her arms the pale of his safety, the balm of his health, the balsam of his life; her industry, his surest wealth; her economy, his safest steward; her lips, his faithful counselors; her bosom, the softest pillow of his cares; and her prayers, the ablest advocates of heaven's blessings on his head.
      - Jeremy Taylor
