Quotes on Friendship, Love, and Conflict in Marriage


Some friends recently got married, so I thought it appropriate to share some thoughts on the subject of marriage, all wrapped up in friendship, love, conflict and relationship.

Friendship, Love and Conflict in Marriage

  • “Love does not consist in gazing at each other, but in looking together in the same direction.” – Antoine de Saint-Exupery
  • “Man’s best friend is a good wife.” – Thomas Edison via @docmac45
  • “The course of true love never did run smooth.” – Shakespeare
  • “We feasted on love; every mode of it, solemn and merry, romantic and realistic, sometimes as dramatic as a thunderstorm, sometimes ad comfortable and unemphatic as putting on your soft slippers. She was my pupil and my teacher, my subject and my sovereign, my trusty comrade, friend, shipmate, fellow-soldier. My mistress, but at the same time, all that any man friend has ever been to me.” – C.S. Lewis
  • “Marriage is not a machine that needs routine maintenance to keep it functioning, but a supernatural event founded upon a mutual exchange of holy pledges. Above all, marriage is a deep, mysterious, and unfathomable endeavor.” – Les & Leslie Parrott
  • “Anyone without a soul friend is like a body without a head.” – Celtic proverb
  • “Marriage doesn’t create problems. It reveals them. You bring unresolved stuff into it.” – @RickWarren
  • “Love is not merely a feeling. ‘Being in love’ moved them to promise fidelity: this quieter love enables them to keep it.” – C.S. Lewis
  • “There is a sword between the sexes till an entire marriage reconciles them.” – C.S. Lewis
  • “To get divorced because love has died, is like selling ur car because it’s run out of gas.” – Diane Sollee via @craiggroeschel

  1. One of my favorites,

    “For my wedding, I don’t want violins.
    Or sentimental songs about thick and thin.
    I want a moment of silence and a moment of prayer.
    For the love we’ll need to make it in the world out there.”

    Don Henley/For My Wedding

    Congratulations John
