Favorite Marriage Contract Quotes

1. "I believe marriage is between a man and a woman. I am not in favor of gay marriage. But when you start playing around with constitutions, just to prohibit somebody who cares about another person, it just seems to me that's not what America's about. Usually, our constitutions expand liberties, they don't contract them."
Author: Barack Obama
2. "Although "traditional marriage" was a form of slavery, I do support people's decision to make a modern contractual agreement of commitment toward each other, especially because there are so many social and tax incentives. When I say people I mean all people regardless of race, gender, sexuality, or number of consenting adults who want to enter this union."
Author: Christy Leigh Stewart
3. "A good businessman never makes a contract unless he's sure he can carry it through, yet every fool on earth is perfectly willing to sign a marriage contract without considering whether he can live up to it or not."
Author: Dalton Trumbo
4. "The marriage bond is more than a civil contract. It is a reward for loving well."
Author: David Paul Kirkpatrick
5. "We see a promise as a personal law, and we see the people who break them as private-life criminals. We think it automatically, one of those truths that just is to us: breaking a promise is a bad, bad thing. A promise can be as buoyant as whispered words or solemn as a marriage vow, but we view it as something pure and untouchable when it should never be either of those things. If a promise is a personal law, a contract, then it ought to be layered with fine print, rules and conditions, promises within those promises, and whether we like it or not, it ought to be something we can snatch back, that we should snatch back, if those rules are violated."
Author: Deb Caletti
6. "Unfenced by law, the unmarried lover can quit a bad relationship at any time. But you - the legally married person who wants to escape doomed love - may soon discover that a significant portion of your marriage contract belongs to the State, and that it sometimes takes a very long while for the State to grant you your leave."
Author: Elizabeth Gilbert
7. "While marriage in the first instance is for the benefit of the contracting parties, both physical, mental, and spiritual, each must take the longer view and realize that the same success or failure in this venture will carry over into the lives of posterity. When people marry, they not only choose companions for life, but they also select the parents for their children and the "stock" for their posterity.[Roy West, Vital Quotations, 223]"
Author: Hugh B. Brown
8. "To try and stand outside the marriage, I'd say we have complementary capabilities. I do the hustling and the business. I do more script reading. I handle contracts."
Author: Hume Cronyn
9. "Marriage Asian-style is practical, contractual and, to the western mind, deeply unromantic."
Author: Jemima Khan
10. "Marriage is a contract. Love is non-negotiable."
Author: Jessica Zafra
11. "I know every line of his face. The one that was carved the first year of our marriage, by laughing so often. The one that was born of worries the year he left the contracting companies to go into business for himself. The one developed from focusing hard on Nathaniel as he took his first steps, said his first words."
Author: Jodi Picoult
12. "[The book, Anna Karenina, is] a mirror held up to the real, grimy, quotidian interactions of married life, of which romance is little more than a passing mood: marriage, that slippery social contract that, if it works at all, depends more on indulgent disconnection than on some kind of sacred accord."
Author: Kate Moses
13. "Marriage is a financial contract; I have enough contracts already."
Author: Linda Fiorentino
14. "Oh,Dane and I won't ever get married."Jack gave me an alert glance. "Why not?""Neither of us believes in it. It's just apiece of paper."He appeared to consider that. "I've neverunderstood why people say something is just155/852a piece of paper. Some pieces of paper areworth a hell of a lot. Diplomas. Contracts.Constitutions.""In those cases, I agree the paper is worthsomething. But a marriage contract and allthat goes with it, the ring, the big meringuepuffwedding dress, doesn't mean anything. Icould make Dane a legal promise that Iwould love him forever, but how can I be certainI will? You can't legislate emotions. Youcan't own someone else. So the union is basicallya property-sharing agreement. And ofcourse if there are children, you have to workout the terms for co-parenting . . . but all ofthat can be handled without marriage. Theinstitution has outlived its usefulness."
Author: Lisa Kleypas
15. "Love is giving, marriage is buying and selling. You can't put love into a contract."
Author: Margaret Atwood
16. "A marriage contract to me is as binding as any in business, and I have always believed in sticking to an agreement."
Author: Paul Getty
17. "Marriage is a legal contract -- it's not a sacred thing. ~Celaena Sardothien"
Author: Sarah J. Maas
18. "...it is foreign to a man's nature to go on loving a person when he is told that he must and shall be that person's lover. There would be a much likelier chance of his doing it if he were told not to love. If the marriage ceremony consisted in an oath and signed contract between the parties to cease loving from that day forward, in consideration of personal possession being given, and to avoid each other's society as much as possible in public, there would be more loving couples than there are now. Fancy the secret meetings between the perjuring husband and wife, the denials of having seen each other, the clambering in at bedroom windows, and the hiding in closets! There'd be little cooling then."
Author: Thomas Hardy

Today's Quote

I cannot tell you what it is that guides us in this life; but for me, I fell toward the Chairman just as a stone must fall toward the earth. When I cut my lip and met Mr. Tanaka, when my mother died and I was cruelly sold, it was all like a stream that falls over rocky cliffs before it can reach the ocean. Even now that he is gone I have him still, in the richness of my memories."
