Love can be a many-splendid thing, but it can also be a real gut-buster. Funny love quotes about marriage and relationships seem to pop up everywhere, from comic strips to stand-up routines, TV sitcoms and dinners out with friends.
First, we have some thoughts on the institution of marriage which is really a custom or behavioral pattern of importance in the life of a marriage. Some behavioral patterns suck but mostly they are great! One thing’s for sure – there’s no shortage of funny love quotes on this wonderful institution of marriage!
Often these quotes knock one side of the relationship or the other. The wife knocks the husband or the husband knocks the wife. The best quotes are those that do not put down either side—and they can be just as funny. So let’s get creative.
There are very few love quotes about unmarried couples living together, plenty of horrible quotes of married octogenarians (someone whose age is in the eighties) and a full bag of really put-down quotes of middle-aged couples!
The battle between the sexes has been raging for eons, and has also given birth to a lot of funny sayings about marriage and love along the way. The gender wars started many moons ago and continue unabated today. It tells you one thing; a lot of marriages are not really, really happy. Socrates used to say “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.”
If you are into romantic novels you will know they will inevitable get together and live happily ever after. We all like to see that happen. In real life, it doesn’t. In the novel you’ll get the protagonist versus the antagonist who get into all sorts of situations that can fuel these funny love quotes—and make a wonderful novel.
“It is better to have loved and lost than never to have lost at all.” Samuel Butler.
The great thing about love is that we aren’t likely to see an end to funny love quotes anytime soon. When it comes to marriage and relationships, it seems there is always something to joke about even though one partner knocks the other in these funny love quotes.
“All married couples should learn the art of battle as they should learn the art of making love. Good battle is objective and honest – never vicious or cruel. Good battle is healthy and constructive, and brings to a marriage the principle of equal partnership.” Ann Landers
