- Assorted Authors

96
Sex appeal alone is the poorest basis in the world for a happy marriage.
- John R. Rice




95
Deceive not thyself by overexpecting happiness in the married estate. Remember the nightingales which sing only some months in the spring, but commonly are silent when they have hatched their eggs.
- Thomas Fuller

94
If you treat your wife like a thoroughbred, you'll never end up with a nag.
- Zig Ziglar

93
In Ephesians 5, Paul shows us that even on earth Jesus did not use his power to oppress us but sacrificed everything to bring us into union with him. And this takes us beyond the philosophical to the personal and the practical. If God had the Gospel of Jesus' salvation in mind when he established marriage, then marriage only 'works' to the degree that approximates the pattern of God's self-giving love in Christ.
- Tim Keller




92
What keeps the marriage going is your commitment to your spouse's holiness.
- Tim Keller

91
When Eve was brought unto Adam, he became filled with the Holy Spirit, and gave her the most sanctified, the most glorious of appellations. He called her Eva, that is to say, the Mother of All. He did not style her wife, but simply mother, mother of all living creatures. In this consists the glory and the most precious ornament of woman.
- Martin Luther

90
The reason that marriage is so painful and yet wonderful is because it is a reflection of the Gospel, which is painful and wonderful at once. The Gospel is this: We are more sinful and flawed in ourselves than we ever dared believe, yet at the very same time we are more loved and accepted in Jesus Christ than we ever dared hope.
- Tim Keller

89
Though bachelors be the strongest stakes, married men are the best binders, in the hedge of the commonwealth.
- Thomas Fuller

88
There is no more lovely, friendly or charming relationship, communion or company, than a good marriage.
- Martin Luther

87
It seems almost oxymoronic to believe that this new idealism has led to a new pessimism about marriage, but that is exactly what has happened. In generations past there was far less talk about compatibility and finding the ideal soul mate. Today we are looking for someone who accepts us as we are and fulfills our desires, and this creates an unrealistic set of expectations that frustrates both the searchers and the searched for.
- Tim Keller

86
If your wife doesn't treat you as she should, be thankful, you might not like what you deserve.
- Jerry Falwell

85
This principle - that your spouse should be capable of becoming your best friend - is a game changer when you address the question of compatibility in a prospective spouse. If you think of marriage largely in terms of erotic love, then compatibility means sexual chemistry and appeal. If you think of marriage largely as a way to move into the kind of social status in life you desire, then compatibility means being part of the desired social class, and perhaps common tastes and aspirations for lifestyle. The problem with these factors is that they are not durable. Physical attractiveness will wane, no matter how hard you work to delay its departure. And socio-economic status unfortunately can change almost overnight. When people think they have found compatibility based on these things, they often make the painful discovery that they have built their relationship on unstable ground. A woman 'lets herself go' or a man loses his job, and the compatibility foundation falls apart.
- Tim Keller

84
For a wife take the daughter of a good mother.
- Thomas Fuller

83
A man doesn't own his marriage; he is only the steward of his wife's love.
- Ed Cole

82
Keep your eyes wide open before marriage, half shut afterwards.
- Assorted Authors

Every man rejoices twice when he has a partner of his joy; a friend shares my sorrow and makes it but a moiety, but he swells my joy and makes it double.
- Jeremy Taylor

80
A man finds himself seven years older the day after his marriage.
- Francis Bacon

79
As God by creation made two of one, so again by marriage He made one of two.
- Thomas Adams




78
According to the Bible, the marriage act is more than a physical act. It is an act of sharing. It is an act of communion. It is an act of total self-giving wherein the husband gives himself completely to the wife, and the wife gives herself to the husband in such a way that the two actually become one flesh.
- Wayne Mack

77
She commandeth her husband, in any equal matter, by constant obeying him.
- Thomas Fuller

76
Fifty-fifty marriages are an impossibility. They do not work. They cannot work. In marriage someone has to be the final decision maker. Someone has to delegate responsibility, and God has ordained that this should be the husband.
- Wayne Mack

75
While your character flaws may have created mild problems for other people, they will create major problems for your spouse and your marriage.
- Tim Keller

74
Many marriages would be better if the husband and the wife clearly understood that they are on the same side.
- Zig Ziglar

73
Marriage has in it less of beauty, but more of safety, than the single life; it hath not more ease, but less danger; it is more merry and more sad; it is fuller of sorrows and fuller of joys; it lies under more burdens, but is supported by all the strengths of love and charity; and those burdens are delightful.
- Jeremy Taylor
