The light of a whole life dies
When love is gone.
Those have most power to hurt us that we love.
Before marriage, a man will go home and lie awake all night thinking about something you said; after marriage, he’ll go to sleep before you finish saying it.
In the true marriage relation, the independence of the husband and wife is equal, the dependence mutual and their obligations reciprocal.
The legal theory is, that marriage makes the husband and wife one person, and that person is the husband.
There is no regular path for getting out of love as there is for getting in. Some people look upon marriage as a short cut that way, but it has been known to fail.
Keep your eyes wide open before marriage, half shut afterwards.
Love and marriage, love and marriage,
Go together like a horse and carriage.
Wives are young men’s mistresses, companions for middle age, and old men’s nurses.
All married couples should learn the art of battle as they should learn the art of making love.
