Welcome to the marriage quotes and poems page.
This is the place that celebrates the beauty and challenges of marriage. How do we define marriage anyway? Officially, marriage is a social union or legal contract between two people. Hopefully, the union is based on love with the committment to make it succeed - creating a solid, satisfying relationship.

MARRIAGE, n.  the dawn of romance and the commencement of history;  a pro-cess much like a cafeteria -- you carefully look over the choices, select what looks the best -- and pay later;  a word which always means commitment -- but so does insanity; a rite where two people, under the influence of the most violent, most insane, most delusive, and most transient of passions, promise to maintain this excited, abnormal and exhausting condition until death do them part;  a bargain, and a sensible person understands that someone must get the better of any bargain;  a delightful form of combat where you get to sleep with the enemy;

As you enter into the little world,
that you promised to make brighter for each other,
may He who harnesses the waves
and hanges the sun out in the sky
and puts the song in the birds
especially bless you
and make your marriage a good and happy one!
Love is indeed "a many splendored thing!"
When it is given and returned,
it enriches both the Lover an the Beloved.
And as long as two people love each other,
nothing in this world is too difficult or too impossible
for wanting to do something for the one you love
takes all the burden out of it
and roughest way becomes smooth
when you can travel it hand in hand
~ Helen Steiner Rice
