A list of quotes about marriage and married life to make couples laugh or cry.

A beginning or an end?

The argument towards the definition of marriage has existed for a long time. Some say that it is the end of love, romance and freedom, while some others insist that it is the beginning of a new life chapter.

Whether we want it or not, our life changes when we get married. 

All of a sudden, instead of sleeping diagonally on our bed, we learn to share it and fall asleep with another person snoring by our sides. Instead of ordering pizza to go with Netflix, we now have to cook and watch shows that we don’t necessarily enjoy. 

But marriage also gives us a warm hug, a helping hand, and a sympathetic ear. No matter how one enjoys being alone, having someone by our side will make our life more meaningful and less miserable. 

So what is marriage to you? How will you describe your married life? 

Struggling with words? Take a look at these funny yet inspiring marriage quotes and sayings. They will either make you laugh, regret or cherish your marriage even more.
