Marriage; Heaven or Hell?

“God, the best maker of all marriages, Combine your hearts in one.” – William Shakespeare, Henry V (c. 1599)

“Oh! how many torments lie in the small circle of a wedding ring.”- Colley Cibber.

The godly union of souls in mutual forebearance with each other’s infirmities, and mutual stimulating each other’s graces–this surely is a fragment of true happiness that has survived the Fall.” – Charles Bridges, An Exposition of Ecclesiastes

“Marriage in the contemplation of every Christian community is the union of one man and one woman to the exclusion of all others.” – Lush, L.J., Harvey v. Farnie (1880)

Love and marriage, love and marriage. They go together like a horse and carriage
Dad was told by mother. You can’t have one without the other.  
Frank Sinatra

“Ay, marriage is the life-long miracle, The self-begetting wonder, daily fresh.” – Charles Kingsley, Saint’s Tragedy

“Marriage is memory, marriage is time.” – Joan Didion, The Year of Magical Thinking

 

“The tragedy of marriage is that while all women marry thinking that their man will change, all men marry believing their wife will never change.” – Len Deighton, London Match

“No woman marries for money: they are all clever enough, before marrying a millionaire, to fall in love with him.” – Cesare Pavese, This Business of Living, 1941

“A bad marriage is like an electrical thrilling machine: it makes you dance, but you can’t let go.” – Ambrose Bierce, A Cynic Looks at Life.

“The best way to remember your wife’s birthday is to forget it once.”– Joseph Cossman, Wit On Target.

 

That’s no one else’s Business. So why would you be signing up a contract with the world
So long as you don’t marry
You will always have the freedom and choice to be in love – John Mayall
