Famous quotes containing the words marriage and, marriage and/or issue:

    Marriage and deathless friendship, both should be inviolable and sacred: two great creative passions, separate, apart, but complementary: the one pivotal, the other adventurous: the one, marriage, the centre of human life; and the other, the leap ahead.
    —D.H. (David Herbert)

    Adultery is the vice of equivocation.
    It is not marriage but a mockery of it, a merging that mixes love and dread together like jackstraws. There is no understanding of contentment in adultery.... You belong to each other in what together you’ve made of a third identity that almost immediately cancels your own. There is a law in art that proves it. Two colors are proven complimentary only when forming that most desolate of all colors—neutral gray.
    Alexander Theroux (b. 1940)

    I cannot wish the fault undone, the issue of it being so proper.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
