Marriage and Wedding Humour

A friend got married over the weekend. It was a lovely wedding ceremony. Coincidentally, I came across this unknown humourous piece in my archives.

Getting married is very much like going to a continental restaurant with friends. You order what you want, then when you see what the other fellow has, you wish you had ordered that.

At the cocktail party, one woman said to another, "Aren't you wearing your wedding ring on the wrong finger?" The other replied,
"Yes I am, I married the wrong man."

Man is incomplete until he is married. Then he is really finished.

Marriage is an institution in which a man loses his bachelor's degree and the woman gets her master's.

A little boy asked his father, "Daddy, how much does it cost to get married?" And the father replied, "I don't know, son, I'm still paying for it."

Young Son: Is it true, Dad, I heard that in some parts of Africa a man doesn't know his wife until he marries her?
Dad: That happens in most countries, son.

Then there was a man who said, "I never knew what real happiness was until I got married; and then it was too late.

A happy marriage is a matter of give and take; the husband gives and the wife takes.

When a newly married man looks happy we know why. But when a ten-year married man looks happy - we wonder why.

Married life is very frustrating.
1.In the first year of marriage, the man speaks and the woman listens.
2.In the second year, the woman speaks and the man listens.
3.In the third year, they both speak and the neighbours listen.

After a quarrel, a wife said to her husband, "You know, I was a fool when I married you." And the husband replied, "Yes, dear, but I was in love and didn't notice it."

It doesn't matter how often a married man changes his job, he still ends up with the same boss.

A man inserted an 'ad' in the classifieds: "Wife wanted". Next day he received a hundred letters. They all said the same thing:
"You can have mine."

When a man opens the door of his car for his wife, you can be sure of one thing: either the car is new or the wife.

Many a man owes his success to his first wife and his second wife to his success.

I recently read that love is entirely a matter of chemistry. That must be why my wife treats me like toxic waste

I've sometimes thought of marrying, and then I've thought again. -
Noel Coward, 1956

I'm an excellent housekeeper. Every time I get a divorce, I keep the house.

When a man steals your wife, there is no better revenge than to let him keep her.

Marriage is like pi - natural, irrational, and very important. -
Lisa Hoffman

She's a lovely person. She deserves a good husband. Marry her before she finds one. - Oscar Levant to Harpo Marx upon meeting Harpo's fiancee

We in the industry know that behind every successful screenwriter stands a woman. And behind her stands his wife.

Eighty percent of married men cheat in America. The rest cheat in Europe.

Marriage is like a cage; one sees the birds outside desperate to get in, and those inside desperate to get out.

After marriage, husband and wife become two sides of a coin; they just cann't face each other, but still they stay together.

By all means marry. If you get a good wife, you'll be happy. If you get a bad one, you'll become a philosopher...and that is a good thing for any man.

A successful man is one who makes more money than his wife can spend. A successful woman is one who can find such a man.

Marriage is a great institution, but I'm not ready for an institution.

Marriage is a three ring circus: engagement ring, wedding ring, and suffering.

Marriage is bliss. Ignorance is bliss. Therefore ...

Marriage is not a word; it is a sentence.

Marriage is the triumph of imagination over intelligence. Second marriage is the triumph of hope over experience.

Marriage is when a man and woman become as one; the trouble starts when they try to decide which one.

Marriages are made in heaven. But so again, are thunder and lightning.

Before marriage, a man yearns for the woman he loves. After marriage, the 'Y' becomes silent.

Do not marry a person that you know that you can live with; only marry someone that you cannot live without.

I had some words with my wife, and she had some paragraphs with me.

If you want your spouse to listen and pay strict attention to every word you say, talk in your sleep.

A perfect wife is one who helps the husband with the dishes.

A woman was telling her friend , "It is I who made my husband a millionaire." "And what was he before you married him." Asked the friend. The woman replied, " A multi-millionaire".

Enjoy the rest of your day!!


  1. Here's another one -

    "Love is blind and marriage cures it!"

  2. That is why many people are not marrying, marrying late or co-habiting.

  3. Hope this will not discourage you from tying the knot ;)

    are we ladies so difficult??

  5. Marriage is an institution that requires commitment. But who wants to me committed to an institution?

  6. Haha... You're pretty good at finding such good quotes... I love it...

  7. FH2o, marriage cures blindness? haha!

    Poor Joe, hey! don't take them too seriously though some may be true. There are always two sides to everything. We just need to look more towards the brighter side. No?

    IML, haha! of course not. I'm just still waiting for the elusive knight in shining armour. ;)

  8. Pink Cotton, "are we ladies so difficult??"

    We must be for someone to compile all these bad, bad things about us. LOL!

    Pandabonium, the Wise One, speaks!

    Hi Ian, let's just say, I'm pretty good at finding and keeping friends who are a great source of such witty stuff. Glad you enjoyed them. I'm not freaking you out, I hope.

    Though some people found their good spouse, how to keep the marriage life until the end that is a question yet to be answered……commitment, reliance to each other are the must or..

  10. PP, that's a tough one. It takes two to tango. I believe commitment to make it work is a must. Nowadays, young couples easily give up trying thus the higher divorce rate.

  11. Marriage is indeed a big word now...
    However the hope never ended since generations...
    Some thing to ponder with a smile nevertheless

  12. Dear Z, such positiveness. Yay! There is hope yet. Attaboy!
