A lady of 47 who has been married 27 years and has 6 children knows what love really is and once described it for me like this: "Love is what you've been through with somebody."
      - James Thurber

Thrice happy is that humble pair,
  Beneath the level of all care!
    Over whose heads those arrows fly
      Of sad distrust and jealousy.
      - Edmund Waller,
        Of the Marriage of the Dwarfs (l. 7)

The happy married man dies in good stile at home, surrounded by his weeping wife and children. The old bachelor don't die at all--he sort of rots away, like a pollywog's tail.
      - Artemus Ward (pseudonym of Charles Farrar Browne),
        Draft in Baldinsville

'Tis just like a summer bird cage in a garden; the birds that are without despair to get in, and the birds that are within despair, and are in a consumption, for fear they shall never get out.
      - John Webster, White Devil (act I, sc. 2)

I never married. Nobody ever asked me.
      - Mattie White, on her 100th birthday

Wedlock's a saucy, sad, familiar state,
  Where folks are very apt to scold and hate.
      - Dr. John Wolcot (Wolcott or Woolcott) (used pseudonym Peter Pindar)

Why do not words, and kiss, and solemn pledge,
  And nature that is kind in woman's breast,
    And reason that in man is wise and good,
      And fear of Him who is a righteous Judge,--
        Why do not these prevail for human life,
          To keep two hearts together, that began
            Their spring-time with one love.
      - William Wordsworth, Excursion (bk. VI)

You are of the society of the wits and railleurs . . . the surest sign is, since you are an enemy to marriage,--for that, I hear, you hate as much as business or bad wine.
      - William Wycherley, Country Wife

'Tis my maxim, he's a fool that marries; but he's a greater that does not marry a fool.
      - William Wycherley, Country Wife
         (act I, sc. 1, l. 502)

Body and soul, like peevish man and wife,
  United jar, and yet are loth to part.
      - Edward Young, Night Thoughts
         (night II, l. 175)
