[ Also see Marriage Matrimony ]

Husband and wife,--so much in common, how different in type! Such a contrast, and yet such harmony, strength and weakness blended together!
      - Giovanni Ruffini

Conjugal love is the metempsychosis of woman.
      - Constance Pipelet de Salm

The happiness of married life depends upon the power of making small sacrifices with readiness and cheerfulness.
      - John Selden

A world - without - end bargain.
      - William Shakespeare

If she be not honest, chaste, and true, there's no man happy.
      - William Shakespeare

Thou art an elm, my husband, I a vine.
      - William Shakespeare, Comedy of Errors

A happy marriage is a new beginning of life, a new starting-point for happiness and usefulness.
      - Dean Arthur Penrhyn Stanley

Socrates, who is by all accounts the undoubted head of the sect of the hen-pecked, owed, and acknowledged that he owed, a great part of his virtue to the exercise his useful wife constantly gave him.
      - Sir Richard Steele

It was in his own home that Fielding knew and loved her (Amelia); from his own wife that he drew the most charming character in English fiction.
      - William Makepeace Thackeray

There are few husbands whom the wife cannot win in the long run, by patience and love.
      - Marguerite de Valois

The bitterest satires and noblest eulogies on married life have come from poets.
      - Edwin Percy Whipple

If the man be really the weaker vessel, and the rule is necessarily in the wife's hands, how is it then to be? To tell the truth, I believe that the really loving, good wife never finds it out. She keeps the glamor of love and loyalty between herself and her husband, and so infuses herself into him that the weakness never becomes apparent either to her or to him or to most lookers-on.
      - Charlotte Mary Yonge
