One should believe in marriage as in the immortality of the soul.
William Blake 1770-1850
She who dwells with me whom I have loved with such communion, that no place on earth can ever be solitude to me.
Amy Bloom 1953
Marriage is not the ritual or an end, it is a long, intricate, intimate dance together and nothing matters more than your own sense of balance and choice of partner.
Benjamin Disraeli 1804-1881
I have lived long enough to know that the evening glow of love has its own riches and splendour.
George Eliot 1819-1880
What greater thing is there for two human souls than to feel that they are joined...
to beat one with each other in silent, unspeakable memories.
Jane Fonda 1937
Well, what is a relationship?
It's about two people having tremendous weaknesses and vulnerabilities, like we all do, and one person being able to strengthen the other in their areas of vulnerability, and vice versa. You need each other. You complete each other, passion and romance aside.

Same old slippers - Same old rice - Same old glimpse of paradise
George Macdonald 1824-1905
One of the good things that come of a true marriage is, that there is one face which changes come without you seeing them; or rather, there is one face which you can see the same, through all the shadows which years have gathered upon it.
Andre Maurois 1885-1967

always with the same person.
John Milton 1608-1674
Hail wedded love, mysterious law,
true source of human happiness.
Love is often a fruit of marriage.
Marriage is an ethnic weaving together of families, of two souls with their individual fates and destinies, of time and eternity. Everyday life married to the timeless mysteries of the soul.
Our wedding was many years ago...
The celebration continues to this day.
Rainer Rilke 1875-1926 Marriage Sayings
A good marriage is that in which each appoints the other, guardian of his soul.
Once the realization is accepted that even between the closest human beings, infinite distances continue, a wonderful living, side by side, can grow.
Simone Signoret 1921-1985
Chains do not hold a marriage together. It is threads, hundreds of tiny threads, which sew people together through the years.
Mark Twain 1835-1910 Marriage Sayings
A marriage makes of two fractional lives a whole; it gives to two purposeless lives a work and doubles the strength of each to perform it. It gives to two questioning natures a reason for living and something to live for.
Love seems the swiftest, but it is the slowest of all growths. No man or woman really knows what perfect love is until they have been married a quarter or a century.
The most wonderful of all things in life, I believe, is the discovery of another human being with whom one's relationship has a growing depth, beauty and joy as the years increase.
This inner progressiveness of love between two human beings is a most marvelous thing, it cannot be found by looking for it, or by passionatly wishing for it. It is a sort of divine accident and the most wonderful of all things in life.
Katherine Whitehorn 1928
A good marriage is like Dr Who's Tardis:
small and banal from the outside
but spacious and interesting from within.
Marriages are made in heaven.
Married couples who love each other,
tell each other a thousand things, without talking.
Two things doth prolong thy life...
a quiet heart and a loving wife.
