Quotes for a happy marriage and family

The beautiful Mountain Pines Place
Later on today, I will make the trip to beautiful Mountain Pines Place in Dahilayan, Bukidnon for the Couples’ Retreat that I have advertised on this blog, The Story Of Us, as I will emcee the event.  Please pray for me, guys.  I’ve done quite a bit of emceeing in the past, but it makes me nervous every time.

Well, in honor of this event, below are some beautiful quotes for a happy marriage and family.  Enjoy!




I am convinced that if we as a society work diligently in every other area of life and neglect the family, it would be analogous to straightening deck chairs on the Titanic.
~Stephen Covey


Success in marriage does not come merely through finding the right mate, but through being the right mate.
~Barnett R. Brickner


Our wedding was many years ago.  The celebration continues to this day. 
~Gene Perret


Don't marry the person you think you can live with; marry only the individual you think you can't live without.
~James C. Dobson


What counts in making a happy marriage is not so much how compatible you are, but how you deal with incompatibility. 
~George Levinger


There is no more lovely, friendly and charming relationship, communion or company than a good marriage. 
~Martin Luther


The most important thing that a father can do for his children is to love their mother.
~Theodore M. Hesburgh


Marriage is a promise. Not just between the couple but to the community at large, to generations past and to those yet to be born.


The secret to having a good marriage is to understand that marriage must be total, it must be permanent, and it must be equal.

~Frank Pittman

The most important marriage skill is listening to your partner in a way that they can't possibly doubt that you love them.
~Diane Sollee, smartmarriages.com


Any fool can have a trophy wife. It takes a real man to have a trophy marriage.
~Diane Sollee, smartmarriages.com


Marriage, ultimately, is the practice of becoming passionate friends.
~Harville Hendrix


In every marriage more than a week old, there are grounds for divorce.
The trick is to find, and continue to find, the grounds for marriage.
~Robert Anderson


Happy marriages begin when we marry the ones we love, and they
blossom when we love the ones we marry.
~Tom Mullen


Marriage is our society's most pro-child institution. If you want kids to do well, then you want marriage to do well.
~David Blankenhorn

I got these quotes here, and there’s much more where that came from.

The response to The Story Of Us has been fantastic, and if you’d like to try to make it to our December version of this event, I’m sorry, but it’s already fully booked and you’ll be put on a wait list.  Don’t despair, though.  If there are enough wait-listed couples, CCF would gladly open up a third retreat some time in January of next year. 

I hope you liked the quotes for a happy marriage and family.  Tune in soon for photos and a short review of The Story of Us.
