110+ Quotes about Marriage Being a Sensation of Excitement
Though there are numerous types of love, the passionate love we have for “the one” – whether we aren’t married yet, are newlywed, or have been married for decades – is what distinguishes this connection.
For millennia, artists, poets, singers, and others have been inspired by romance, which is defined as “a sensation of excitement and mystery linked with love.” Our preoccupation with love is part of what makes us human, from ancient Roman and Greek poetry to modern films.
One of the most difficult aspects of marriage is keeping the spark of romantic love alive. Work, daily responsibilities, pets, household duties, and child care are just a few of the factors that can make it tough to prioritize romance. However, according to Psychology Today, being romantic is an important aspect of maintaining and building a relationship. Couples who don’t make time to be romantic with each other are also less likely to stay together than those who do.
It doesn’t have to be tough or time-consuming to find love. It could be as simple as shutting off your phones in the evenings, scheduling a weekend coffee date, cooking a special dinner together, having a bath, or kissing each other before leaving the house.
Making your marriage a priority, especially when you have a lot on your plate, is essential for a long and happy marriage.
These are some of the most romantic quotations ever, whether you’re wanting to remind yourself of the value of romance or for a nice and meaningful way to declare your love to your spouse.

I am nothing special, of this I am sure. I am a common man with common thoughts and I’ve led a common life. There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten, but I’ve loved another with all my heart and soul, and to me, this has always been enough.___Nicholas Sparks
Who, being loved, is poor?___Oscar Wilde
Let there be spaces in your togetherness, And let the winds of the heavens dance between you. Love one another but make not a bond of love: Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls. Fill each other’s cup but drink not from one cup. Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf. Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone, Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music. Give your hearts, but not into each other’s keeping. For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts. And stand together, yet not too near together: For the pillars of the temple stand apart, And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other’s shadow.___Khalil Gibran, The Prophet
It is not a lack of love, but a lack of friendship that makes unhappy marriages.― Friedrich Nietzsche

Funny Marriage Quotes
Laughter is at the centre of a happy marriage, no matter how long you’ve been together.
To better understand the impact of laughing in marriage, Jeffrey Hall of the University of Kansas evaluated 39 studies (with over 15,000 participants) during the last 30 years.
He discovered that “romantic partners’ playfulness is a vital component in bonding and building relationship security,” and that laughter, “especially shared laughter, is an important predictor of romantic attraction between potential mates.”Making one another laugh has a big impact on how happy couples are in their relationships. So, having a good sense of humour isn’t only something you should search for at the start of a relationship; it’s something you should work on throughout your marriage.

I assumed all marriages which fail have one or both of the spouses doing something wrong and the wrongdoing leads to a breakup. I was wrong. Doing nothing is equally as bad. Because people don’t float together, they float apart. To stay together, you need a tether. To thrive, a couple must cling and cleave as if there’s a massive wave coming at them. Because there is a wave called drift – laziness, selfishness, convenience, comfortable, resentment, indiscipline, busy. And before long, you look around, and you lost sight of your spouse. Stay tethered: live your vows. Your relationship is counting on it.___Ngina Otiende
