I don’t have much time to write today, so I just looked for a few pithy quotes about marriage in my Oxford Dictionary of Quotations. All the quotes I found slyly disparaged the idea of marriage, although this one seemed to slyly promote it.

“Wen you’re a married man, Samivel, you’ll understand a good many things as you don’t understand now; but vether it’s worth while goin’ through so much to learn so little, as the charity-boy said ven he got to the end of the alphabet, is a matter o’ taste.”

—Charles Dickens, Pickwick Papers

If you know any witty, pithy quotes that celebrate marriage, please share them in the comments.
