Then there was the fury with herself—for she had known what Henry's love was, and still she had gone back to suffer a little more at his hands."

"I shall expect my husband to have no pleasures but what he shares with me; and if his greatest pleasure of all is not the enjoyment of my company - why - it will be the worse for him - that's all.''If such are your expectations of matrimony, Esther, you must, indeed, be careful whom you marry - or rather, you must avoid it altogether."

4. "But no, music lasted longer than anything it inspired. After LPs, cassettes, and CDs, when matrimony was about to decay into its component elements—alimony and acrimony—the songs startled him and regained all their previous, pre-Rachel meanings, as if they had not only conjured her but then dismissed her, as if she had been entirely their illusion. He listened to the old songs again, years later on that same dark promenade, when every CD he had ever owned sat nestled in that greatest of all human inventions, the iPod, dialed up and yielding to his fingertip's tap. The songs now offered him, in exchange for all he had lost, the sensation that there was something still to long for, still, something still approaching, and all that had gone before was merely prologue to an unimaginably profound love yet to seize him. If there was any difference now, it was only that his hunger for music had become more urgent, less a daily pleasure than a daily craving."
Author: Arthur Phillips

May you even be so distracted that day that you walk past the registry office without remembering to stop there."
Author: Colette

Author: David Gilbert
14. "Philip wasn't the sort of man to make a friend of a woman. He wanted devotion. I gave him that. I did, you know. But I couldn't stand being made a fool of. I couldn;t stand being put on probation, like an office-boy, to see if I was good enough to be condescended to. I quite thought he was honest when he said he didn't believe in marriage -- and then it turned out that it was a test, to see whether my devotion was abject enough. Well, it wasn't. I didn't like having matrimony offered as a bad-conduct prize."
Author: Dorothy L. Sayers

"Still it is true that many same-sex couples want nothing more than to join society as fully integrated socially responsible family-centered taxpaying Little League-coaching nation-serving respectably married citizens.

Author: Elizabeth Gilbert

Creían ser felices, y tal vez lo eran, hasta que uno de los dos decía una palabra de más, o daba un paso de menos, y la noche se pudría en un pleito de vándalos que desmoralizaba a los mastines. Todo volvía entonces al principio, y Dulce Olivia desaparecía de la casa por largo tiempo."
Author: Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez

22. "Dorothea, with all her eagerness to know the truths of life, retained very childlike ideas about marriage. She felt sure that she would have accepted the judicious Hooker, if she had been born in time to save him from that wretched mistake he made in matrimony;or John Milton when his blindness had come on; or any of the other great men whose odd habits it would have been glorious piety to endure; but an amiable handsome baronet, who said "Exactly" to her remarks even when she expressed uncertainty,--how could he affect her as a lover? The really delightful marriage must be that where your husband was a sort of father, and could teach you even Hebrew, if you wished it."
Author: George Eliot

Author: Ilona Andrews
27. "So that ends my first experience of matrimony, which I always thought a highly over-rated performance."
Author: Isadora Duncan
28. "And such is your definition of matrimony and dancing. Taken in that light, certainly their resemblance is not striking; but I think I could place them in such a view. You will allow that in both man has the advantage of choice, woman only the power of refusal; that in both it is an engagement between man and woman, formed for the advantage of each; and that when once entered into, they belong exclusively to each other till the moment of its dissolution; that it is their duty each to endeavor to give the other no cause for wishing that he or she had bestowed themselves elsewhere, and their best interest to keep their own imaginations from wandering towards the perfections of their neighbors, or fancying that they should have been better off with any one else."
Author: Jane Austen
29. "Luck which so often defies anticipation in matrimonial affairs, giving attraction to what is moderate rather than to what is superior."

31. "We Greeks get married in circles, to impress upon ourselves the essential matrimonial facts: that to be happy you have to find variety in repetition; that to go forward you have to come back where you began."
Author: Jeffrey Eugenides
32. "A love story can never be about full possession. The happy marriage, the requited love, the desire that never dims--these are lucky eventualites but they aren't love stories. Love stories depend on disappointment, on unequal births and feuding families, on matrimonial boredom and at least one cold heart. Love stories, nearly without exception, give love a bad name.We value love not because it's stronger than death but because it's weaker. Say what you want about love: death will finish it. You will not go on loving in the grave, not in any physical way that will at all resemble love as we know it on earth. The perishable nature of love is what gives love its importance in our lives. If it were endless, if it were on tap, love wouldn't hit us the way it does.And we certainly wouldn't write about it."
Author: Jeffrey Eugenides
33. "Científicamente considerado, el matrimonio es un molino prehistórico en el que dos piedras ruejas se muelen a sí mismas, interminablemente, hasta la muerte"

Realmente estoy loco por ti, no se trata de sexo —dijo con ternura, haciendo que mi corazón comenzase a correr. ¿Hablaba en serio o se trataba de un truco así me rendía antes? —¿Y si te digo que no creo en lel sexo antes del matrimonio? —le pregunté, poniéndolo a prueba. Sus ojos brillaron con diversión, pero mantuvo su rostro serio. —Entonces te diría que nos casáramos tan pronto como fueras mayor de edad. Dieciocho años es la edad legal, ¿verdad? —respondió, guiñándome un ojo."
Author: Kirsty Moseley

Author: Mario Puzo
37. "The mortality rate of literary friendships is high. Writers tend to be bad risks as friends ~ probably for much the same reasons that they are bad matrimonial risks. They expend the best parts of themselves in their work. Moreover, literary ambition has a way of turning into literary competition; if fame is the spur, envy may be a concomitant."
Author: Matthew J. Bruccoli
38. "Love is dirty-sloppy-stupid. The problem has always been: How do we contain such a dangerous substance (love) in the confines of holy matrimony without hurting or killing someone?pg ii"
Author: Michael Ben Zehabe

Author: Nicole Williams

Author: Oscar Wilde
42. "Deseaba llamar a Sophie. Un día incluso fui hasta la oficina de correos y esperé en la cola de las llamadas al extranjero pero no llegué a llamarla. Ahora las palabras me fallaban constantemente y me entró pánico ante la idea de derrumbarme en el teléfono. ¿Qué podía decirle, después de todo? En lugar de eso, le mandé una postal de Laurel y Hardy. En la parte de atrás escribí: "Los verdadero matrimonios nunca tienen sentido. Mira la pareja del dorso. Prueba que cualquier cosa es posible, ¿no? Quizá deberíamos empezar a ponernos sombreros hongo. Por lo menos, acuérdate de vaciar el armario antes de que yo vuelva. Abrazos a Ben"
Author: Paul Auster

Author: Pope John Paul II

Author: Robert Jordan

Author: Samuel Butler

Author: Stephen King
48. "Take now the clockworks... The clockworks, being genuine and not much to look at, don't generate the drama of an Earth-tilt or a flying saucer, nor do they seem to offer any immediate panacea for humanity's fifty-seven varieties of heartburn. But suppose that you're one of those persons who feels trapped, to some degree, trapped matrimonially, occupationally, eductionally or geographically, or trapped in something larger than all those; trapped in a system, or what you might descrbie as an "incresingly deadening technocracy" or a "theater of paranoia and desperation" or something like that. Now, if you are one of those persons... wouldn't the very knowledge that there are clockworks ticking away behind the wallpaper of civilization, unbeknownst to leaders, organizers and managers (the President included), wouldn't that knowledge, suggesting as it does the possibility of unimaginable alternatives, wouldn't that knowledge be a bubble bath for your heart?"
Author: Tom Robbins
49. "Un día la adornarán de piedras preciosas y se casará con un joven turco, al que sólo habrá visto de lejos, al través de una celosía, y con el que cruzará la palabra por vez primera en el momento de ser su esposa. La llevarán a una casa nueva, en la que vivirá como única señora si su marido no ama las costumbres antiguas, o en la que se confundirá con otras, iguales a ella en derechos, distintas a ella en alma, como si fuese de otro planeta. Su madre se extrañará de sus lágrimas y melancolías. Así vivió ella, así vivieron sus abuelas y todas las honradas damas temerosas de Dios. Pero la madre era feliz, abroquelada en su santa ignorancia: no la habían hecho morder el fruto embriagador de la cultura occidental... Y la infeliz reclusa de las tradiciones de su pueblo, asustada ante el porvenir, y mientras llega el momento del matrimonio, se consuela con la lectura, y devora las novelas francesas que llenan los escaparates de las librerías de la gran calle de Pera."
Author: Vicente Blasco Ibáñez
50. "The standard of matrimony is erected by affection and purity, and does not depend upon the height, or bulk, or color, or wealth, or poverty of individuals. Water will seek its level; nature will have free course; and heart will answer to heart."
Author: William Lloyd Garrison
