We’re all suckers for inspirational words, beautiful poems, quotes that tear the fabric of life open to showcase some beautiful wisdom we’ve felt but couldn’t find the words for, or sometimes just the right instagram caption worthy set of words. With that in mind, we took to social media to ask our followers, the showroom to ask our brides, and the workroom to ask each other what some of our favourite words, quotes, or concepts on love and marriage are.
These words discuss everything on why you should get married, what is in store for you when you do get married, expectations around marriage or weddings, and much more. These are some of our favourite quotes on marriage and love.
“Marriage is not the end of the search for love. It’s the end of the search for the person to love. The search for ways to love that person has just begun.” - Unknown
“And when you’re choosing a life partner, you’re choosing a lot of things, including your parenting partner and someone who will deeply influence your children, your eating companion for about 20,000 meals, your travel companion for about 100 vacations, your primary leisure time and retirement friend, your career therapist, and someone whose day you’ll hear about 18,000 times.” - Tim Urban
“Marry a man who wants to be a husband, not a man who just wants a wife. A solid relationship is about shared priorities, not interests. If he’s not doing anything to keep you, why are you trying so hard to stay?” - Unknown
“It’s become such a rarity nowadays to find someone to fall in love with and stay in love with. People seem to forget how beautiful it is to grow old with someone, to build and witness someone’s progression and to conquer obstacles as a team instead of facing them alone. I guess it’s safe to say there’s not enough thrill in it for them. There’s no thrill in comfortability and knowing someone like the back of your hand. I guess that’s why you can call me an old soul. I don’t need to go out all the time and switch people up every other week to fulfil my boredom with temporary happiness. I always wanted something real, someone so genuine that they’re worth lasting a lifetime with. Someone who’s willing to invest the time and effort that’s needed to win instead of forfeiting when ‘there’s no coming back’. I understand it’s nearly impossible nowadays to count on someone with all your heart and soul. It’s more dangerous, if than anything, I guess that’s why you can count me as one of the rare ones. Im not just in it for a reason, season or lifetime…I’m in it for all three."
“The goal in marriage is not to think alike, but to think together.” - Robert C Dodds
“Let your love be stronger than your hate or anger. Learn the wisdom of compromise, for it is better to bend a little than to break. Believe the best rather than the worst. People have a way of living up tor down to your opinion of them. Remember that true friendship is the basis for any lasting relationship. The person you choose to marry is deserving of the courtesies and kindnesses you bestow on your friends. Please hand this down to your children and your children’s children: the more things change, the more they are the same.” - Jane Wells
“Stop saying that marriage is just a ‘piece of paper’…so is money but you still get up every day and work hard for it.” - unknown
“Marry someone you can break generational curses with.”
Deep quotes on love and marriage that are perfect for your next Instagram caption.
“When two people have nothing to hide, no one to impress, nothing to lose, no games left to play, no attachment to specific outcomes…real connection and intimacy happens.”
“Fall in love with someone who is both your safe place and your biggest adventure.” - Bianca Sparacino
“Couples who make it aren’t the ones who never had a reason to get divorced; they are simply the ones who decide that their commitment to each other is always more important than their differences and flaws.”
“Behind every great relationship are difficult and uncomfortable conversations we rarely get to see. Great relationships don’t just fall into our laps. They require people to move through their fears and insecurities and do the hard work to move wounds into healing.” - Unknown
“Love is a choice. That is the first rule of love. It isn’t some strange force that keeps relationships together despite their issues. It is two people that actively put the other first above themselves. That is what keeps relationships together.” - JM Stigler
“Marry that man who calls you back after an argument just to remind you that no matter how difficult things get, he isn’t going to leave you.”
“A soulmate isn’t someone who completes you. No, a soulmate is someone who inspires you to complete yourself. A soulmate is someone who loves you with so much conviction, and so much hearth, that it is nearly impossible to doubt just how capable you are of becoming exactly who you have always wanted to be.”
“To pursue a woman has nothing to do with calling or texting her daily. It’s bigger than taking her on dates. To pursue her means to be honest. To be consistent. To become vulnerable and to articulate your feelings for her every step of the way. It means to reveal your intentions. To make sure she knows you want her and only her and that you remind her often. Extend as much effort as you can and then extend some more. To pursue a woman means that you alter your life in such a way that it’s facing not only her but the future you see with her.”
Meaningful quotes on love that say everything we can't find the words for ourselves.
“Unless it’s mad, passionate, extraordinary love, it’s. Waste of your time. There are too many mediocre things in life; love shouldn’t be one of them.”
“It’s okay for your relationship to be ‘too good to be true’…it’s called healthy.”
“Love the man who makes you laugh. Love the man who gives you his time instead of sugarcoating his absences with material gifts. Love the man who brags about you to others when you’re not around. Love the man who can stand in the background and watch you in the spotlight with a smile—without it threatening his masculinity.”
“A relationship cannot improve if you don’t provide your partner with a safe and open space to express their needs and concerns. If you continue to perceive your partner communicating as an attach, you’re never going to get anywhere. Humble yourself and listen to their needs.”
