Happy Marriage Quotes

I love asking couples who’ve been married a long time their secret for a happy marriage. Many times they’ll just look at each other and smile. But there have been other times when I’ve gotten some really good quotes material for how to have a happy marriage. “Assume the best,” said one happily married wife. “Always speak the truth in love,” said another. And, “Remember that nobody is perfect—that includes your husband and you!”

Another one that I wrote about in detail is, “Change your way of thinking to change your marriage.” In that spirit, I found some great happy marriage quotes to share with you. Pick one of these 28 quotes to help you change your marriage into a happy marriage.
