Marriage Quotes about love

Looking for inspirational marriage quotes for all phases of the journey with your partner?

When we get married and we say our vows, they almost invariably include the phrase, “for better or for worse”. But what do people really mean by this?

Often, it feels like they assume that things will always be, “for better or for better,” and never consider how far they are willing to go if they are really challenged.

What if one of you loses your job for an extended length of time and the other must cover all household expenses?

What if you cannot have the children naturally that you always assumed you could? What if one of you comes down with a serious or eventually fatal illness?

What if there is a case of infidelity, but the partner is genuinely remorseful and wants to work on the marriage?

What if the image you had for your life and your marriage is changed in an instant?

These are some deep questions to ask and be honest with ourselves about.

Need some inspiration?

Here are several marriage quotes that might help give us some much-needed perspective and encouragement.
