"A great marriage is not when the ‘perfect couple’ comes together. It is when an imperfect couple learns to enjoy their differences."
If you look up any quote about marriage, you’re certain to be reminded of one thing: Marriage is long. But it’s also happy, satisfying, soul-nourishing, restorative, and supportive. So while so many marriage quotes out there go for the easy laugh about the seeming conflicts that arise over little things (like who squeezes the toothpaste tube from the bottom and who squeezes it from the top), the truly great thinkers out are more likely to focus on the great things that can come from a true partnership. There’s the compassion you get from someone who fully understands you. There’s the feeling of yearning you get when you’re apart. There’s the blissful feeling that comes when you know your partner knows all your little foibles but loves you anyway. (And yes, there are some skirmishes about the garbage or the ideal temperature of a room, too, but you can laugh those off.)
Next time you’re writing a wedding toast, creating your marriage vows, or thinking of sending a random I-love-you note to your significant other, these funny, happy marriage quotes are just what you need to get started. Text one to your partner now, and expect some heart emojis to come back.
