Wedding Wisdom - with a Smile 

Poets and song writers have sought to define marriage with the perfect words. But it seems that philosophers and comedians produce the best wedding wisdom. Here are a dozen great truisms of marriage, thanks to our friends at

“After marriage, husband and wife become two sides of a coin; they just can’t face each other, but still they stay together.” – Hemant Joshi

“Marriage is like a phone call in the night: first the ring, and then you wake up.” – Evelyn Hendrickson

“By all means marry; if you get a good wife, you’ll become happy; if you get a bad one, you’ll become a philosopher.” – Socrates

“Marriage is nature’s way of keeping us from fighting with strangers.” – Alan King

“Some people ask the secret of our long marriage. We take time to go to a restaurant two times a week. A little candlelight, dinner, soft music and dancing. She goes Tuesdays, I go Fridays.” – Henny Youngman

“Marriage is the only war in which you sleep with the enemy.” – Anonymous

“I never knew what real happiness was until I got married. And by then it was too late.” – Max Kauffmann

“A man is incomplete until he is married. After that, he is finished.” – Zsa Zsa Gabor

“Women hope men will change after marriage but they don’t; men hope women won’t change but they do.” – Bettina Arndt
