[ Also see Marriage Matrimony ]

Marriage with peace is the world's paradise.
      - Saint Aurelius Augustine (Augustine of Hippo)

If you will learn the seriousness of life, and its beauty also, live for your husband; make him happy.
      - Fredrika Bremer

Husband and wife have so many interests in common that when they have jogged through the ups and downs of life a sufficient time, the leash which at first galled often grows easy and familiar.
      - Edward George Earle Lytton Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

Rarest of all things on earth is the union in which both, by their contrasts, make harmonious their blending; each supplying the defects of the helpmate, and completing, by fusion, one strong human soul.
      - Edward George Earle Lytton Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

The band of conjugal love is adamantine.
      - Robert Burton

He said--and his observation was just--that a man on whom heaven hath bestowed a beautiful wife should be as cautious of the men he brings home to his house as careful of observing the female friends with whom his spouse converses abroad.
      - Cervantes (Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra)

The character of a woman rapidly develops after marriage, and sometimes seems to change, when in fact it is only complete.
      - Benjamin Disraeli, 1st Earl of Beaconsfield

No unity can last, in married life, unless the fellowship of hearts is accompanied by the fellowship of minds. As a woman loses the charms of her youth, her husband must perceive that her mind is developing, and love must be perpetuated by esteem.
      - Bishop Felix Antoine Philliert Dupanloup

The early months of marriage often are times of critical tumult,--whether that of a shrimp pool or of deeper water,--which afterwards subside into cheerful peace.
      - George Eliot (pseudonym of Mary Ann Evans Cross)

There is a French saying: "Love is the dawn of marriage, and marriage is the sunset of love."
      - J. de Finod

Marriage is not, like the hill of Olympus, wholly clear, without clouds.
      - Thomas Fuller (1)

She is not a brilliant woman; she is not even an intellectual one; but there is such a thing as a genius for affection, and she has it. It has been good for her husband that he married her.
      - Helen Hunt (Helen Hunt Jackson)

The very difference of character in marriage produces a harmonious combination.
      - Washington Irving

If a superior woman marry a vulgar or inferior man, he makes her miserable, but seldom governs her mind or vulgarizes her nature; and if there be love on his side, the chances are that in the end she will elevate and refine him.
      - Mrs. Anna Brownell Jameson

We must be careful that the bond of wedlock does not become bondage.
      - Mrs. Anna Brownell Jameson

I believe it will be found that those who marry late are best pleased with their children; and those who marry early, with their partners.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature")

Mutual complacency is the atmosphere of conjugal love.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature")

Wedlock joins nothing, if it joins not hearts.
      - James Sheridan Knowles

Since all the maids are good and lovable, from whence come the evil wives?
      - Charles Lamb (used pseudonym Elia)

For any man to match above his rank is but to sell his liberty.
      - Philip Massinger

The treasures of the deep are not so precious as are the concealed comforts of a man locked up in woman's love.
      - Thomas Middleton

As soon as a woman becomes ours, we are no longer theirs.
      - Michel Eyquem de Montaigne

The land of marriage has this peculiarity: that strangers are desirous of inhabiting it, while its natural inhabitants would willingly be banished from thence.
      - Michel Eyquem de Montaigne

To protect ourselves against the storms of passion, marriage with a woman is a harbor in the tempest; but with a bad woman it is a tempest in the harbor.
      - Jean-Antoine Petit-Senn

Men who marry wives very much superior to themselves are not so truly husbands to their wives as they are unawares made slaves to their position.
      - Plutarch
