marriage

It feels like a moment I’ve lived a thousand times before, as if everything is familiar, right up to the moment of my death, that it will happen again an infinite number of times, that we will meet, marry, have our children, succeed in the ways we have, fail in the ways we have, all exactly the same, always unable to change a thing. I am again at the bottom of an unstoppable wheel, and when I feel my eyes close for death, as they have and will a thousand times, I awake.

Jonathan Safran Foer, Everything is Illuminated

Any good marriage is secret territory, a necessary white space on society’s map. What others don’t know about it is what makes it yours.

Stephen King, Bag of Bones

Marriage is a wonderful invention: then again, so is a bicycle repair kit.

Billy Connolly

Husbands are chiefly good as lovers when they are betraying their wives.

Marilyn Monroe

Before marriage, a girl has to make love to a man to hold him. After marriage, she has to hold him to make love to him.

Marilyn Monroe

I don’t believe in the institution of marriage, for me. If you love somebody and have a commitment that is strong and spiritual, then I just don’t think a piece of paper makes any difference. I’m part of that whole school of thought that says when homosexuals can get married, maybe I’ll start opening my mind to it.
