Quotes for Couples in Love

quotes for couples in love

If ever two were one, then surely we.
If ever man were loved by wife, then thee.
If ever wife was happy in a man,
Compare with me, ye women, if you can.
I prize thy love more than whole mines of gold,
Or all the riches that the East doth hold.
My love is such that rivers cannot quench.
Nor ought but love from thee give recompense.
Thy love is such I can no way repay;
The heavens reward thee manifold, I pray.
Then while we live, in love let’s so perseve,
That when we live no more, we may live ever.

-To My Dear and Loving Husband by Anne Bradstreet, from The Complete Works of Anne Bradstreet (1981)

Newlyweds become oldyweds, and oldyweds are the reasons that families work.

-Author Unknown

Two are better than one because they have a good return for their labor.
For if either of them falls, the one will lift up his companion. But woe to the one who falls when there is not another to lift him up.
Furthermore, if two lie down together they keep warm, but how can one be warm alone?
And if one can overpower him who is alone, two can resist him. A cord of three strands is not quickly torn apart.

-Ecclesiastes 4:9-12, from the Holy Bible

Love seems the swiftest but it is the slowest of all growths. No man or woman really knows what perfect love is until they have been married a quarter of a century.

-Author Mark Twain

Quotes for Couples in Love

There are two kinds of women: those who marry princes and those who marry frogs. The frogs never become princes, but it is an acknowledged fact that a prince may very well, in the course of an ordinary marrige, gradually, at first almost imperceptibly, turn into a frog. Happy the woman who after twenty-five years still wakes up beside the prince she fell in love with.

-The Frog Prince: A Fairy Tale for Consenting Adults (1999) by Stephen Mitchell
