There's only one way to have a happy marriage and as soon as I learn what it is I'll get married again.
I am afraid of getting married. Spare me from cooking three meals a dayspare me from the relentless cage of routine and rote.Sylvia Plath
To marry is to domesticate the Recording Angel.Once you are married, there is nothing left for you, not even suicide, but to be good.Robert Louis Stevenson
What makes a date so dreadful is the weight of expectation attached to it. There is every chance that you may meet your soulmate, get married, have children and be buried side by side. There is an equal chance that the person you meet will look as if they’ve already been buried for some time.Guy Browning
If you help yourself to the benefits of being married when you are single, you're likely to help yourself to the benefits of being single when you're married.manis friedman

Blue! Gentle cousin of the forest-green, married to green in all the sweetest flowers Forget-me-not, the blue bell, and, that queen Of secrecy, the violet: what strange powers Hast thou, as a mere shadow! But how great, When in an Eye thou art alive with fate!john keats
I am to be married within these three days; married past redemption.john dryden

Widowed wife, and married maid, Betrothed, betrayer, and betrayed!

Writing is like getting married. One should never commit oneself until one is amazed at one's luck.iris murdoch
The money men make from their willingness to work the least desirable hours is not a sign of discrimination against women, but a sign of the willingness of mostly married men to lose sleep to support the family as their wife loses sleep to feed the child. A willingness to do the uncomfortable shifts is one reason married men earn more than twice what never-married men earn. Men's contribution, made at night, need not be lost in the dark.warren farrell
