“I take thee… to be my awful wedded husband” ― Susan Elizabeth Phillips, Kiss an Angel
A portion of your soul has been
entwined with mine
A gentle kind of togetherness, while
separately we stand.

separate plots of ground,
While their topmost branches
Forming a miracle of lace
against the heavens.” ― Janet Miles, Images of Women in Transition
“Marriage is a partnership, not a democracy.” ― Nicholas Sparks, The Best of Me
“Laurel: I don’t need a ring or a license, or a spetacular white dress. It’s not marriage so much, or at all really, that matters. It’s the promise. It’s the knowing someone wants me to be part of his life. Someone loves me, that I’m the one for him. That’s not just enough, it’s everything.” ― Nora Roberts, Savor the Moment
“My last night as Isabella Swan. Tomorrow night, I would be Bella Cullen. Though the whole marriage ordeal was a thorn in my side, I had to admit that I liked the sound of that.

“So when’s the wedding?” Ramsey asked.” ― Julie Garwood, Ransom
“A wedding is and event, but marriage is a life.” ― Myles Munroe, Waiting and Dating
“The funny thing is that although we place so much energy and importance on our wedding day, it isn’t the biggest day of our life. The biggest day of your life is every day thereafter. Because it’s not the pledge to love someone that matters, but the act of fulfilling that pledge that is most important. In other words, it’s only just begun.” ― Laura Wolf, Diary of a Mad Bride
“Every bride is beautiful. It’s like newborn babies or puppies. They can’t help it.” ― Emme Rollins, Dear Rockstar
“Here lies a she sun, and a he moon there;
She gives the best light to his sphere;
Or each is both, and all, and so
They unto one another nothing owe;
And yet they do, but are
So just and rich in that coin which they pay,
That neither would, nor needs forbear, nor stay;
Neither desires to be spared nor to spare.
They quickly pay their debt, and then
Take no acquittances, but pay again;
They pay, they give, they lend, and so let fall
No such occasion to be liberal.
More truth, more courage in these two do shine,
Than all thy turtles have and sparrows, Valentine.” ― John Donne, The Complete English Poems
“And down I went to fetch my bride:
But, Alice, you were ill at ease;
This dress and that by turns you tried,
Too fearful that you should not please.
I loved you better for your fears,
I knew you could not look but well;
And dews, that would have fall’n in tears,
I kiss’d away before they fell.” ― Alfred Lord Tennyson
“Tell me it wasn’t fucking you, and you still get to come to the motherfucking wedding sweetheart…
Melody G.” ― J.J. McAvoy, Ruthless People
“I would that I could have stopped time and preserved that day forever. It was a perfect day. There was the shadow of sorrow, yes. It would always be there. But that was the nature of life. The bright mirror and the dark, reflecting one another. And today there was so much brightness.” ― Jacqueline Carey, Kushiel’s Mercy
“Are you sure about that he called off the wedding, Jolene? Sometimes Zeb misspells stuff in e-mails, and it comes across badly.” ― Molly Harper, Nice Girls Don’t Date Dead Men
“A bride, before a “Good-night” could be said,
Should vanish from her clothes into her bed,
As souls from bodies steal, and are not spied.
But now she’s laid; what though she be?
Yet there are more delays, for where is he?
He comes and passeth through sphere after sphere;
First her sheets, then her arms, then anywhere.
Let not this day, then, but this night be thine;
Thy day was but the eve to this, O Valentine.” ― John Donne, The Complete English Poems
“Like most girls, her imagination carried her just as far as the altar and no further.” ― Margaret Mitchell, Gone with the Wind
“Up then, fair phoenix bride, frustrate the sun;
Thyself from thine affection
Takest warmth enough, and from thine eye
All lesser birds will take their jollity.
Up, up, fair bride, and call
Thy stars from out their several boxes, take
Thy rubies, pearls, and diamonds forth, and make
Thyself a constellation of them all;
And by their blazing signify
That a great princess falls, but doth not die.
Be thou a new star, that to us portends
Ends of much wonder; and be thou those ends.” ― John Donne, The Complete English Poems
“My love has placed her little hand
With noble faith in mine,
And vowed that wedlock’s sacred band
Our nature shall entwine.

With me to live — to die;

As I love — loved am I!” ― Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre

Cupid’s Academy counts kissing cousins as completed conquests cause his classes cunningly conspire unconscious couples to copulate and canoodle copiously.” ― Tai Odunsi, Cupid’s Academy: Argus’ Big Fat Greek Wedding Ring
“Some women do not masturbate for pleasure; they masturbate to make a political statement: to remind us that women do not really need men (or at least not as much and as frequently as every single male chauvinist and every single misogynist believes).” ― Mokokoma Mokhonoana, On Masturbation: A Satirical Essay
“…And no prenup. Prenups are for people who plan on getting a divorce. I have so much, Bernie. But I’ve never had anyone to share it with. From now on, what’s mine is yours” ― Jane Graves, Black Ties and Lullabies
“Some women have been faking orgasms for so long that they sometimes fake one when they are masturbating.” ― Mokokoma Mokhonoana, On Masturbation: A Satirical Essay
“The only bit I have pictured in any detail is the music (maybe ‘The Book of Love’ by the Magnetic Fields. Or Johnny Cash’s ‘It Ain’t Me, Babe’). It doesn’t matter if the selection is slow or fast, but couples shouldn’t scramble to select it. If you have ever gone dancing or on a road trip or had a romantic bout of serenaded sex on a winter night, you should have a few to pick from. If not, you probably shouldn’t be getting married.” ― Sloane Crosley, I Was Told There’d Be Cake
“It was masturbation, not willpower, that made it possible for gazillions of women to walk down the aisle with their reputation and their hymen still intact.” ― Mokokoma Mokhonoana, On Masturbation: A Satirical Essay

“Carmen stood at the altar wearing a hand-beaded, curve hugging, ivory silk and chiffon gown that fit so perfectly, it looked as if it had been sewn on her. The fact that one of the breasts beneath the silken fabric was not her flesh but a form made of gel didn’t detract from the gorgeousness of Carmen the slightest bit.” ― Kathleen Cross, Schooling Carmen
“What about me?” Wes snapped. “Don’t I get a vote?”
Daniel shook his head. “She’s willing and you’re breathing. I pronounce you man and wife.” ― Jodi Thomas, To Kiss a Texan
“Do not economize on the hymeneal rites; do not prune them of their splendor, nor split farthings on the day when you are radiant. A wedding is not house-keeping.” ― Victor Hugo, Les Misérables
“Every bride and groom in the history of civilization has gained weight after their wedding day. It is only a matter of time until archaeologists unearth a married caveman who’s wearing a pair of old tux pants that were so tight he couldn’t get the zipper closed.” ― Peter Scott, There’s a Spouse in My House: A Humorous Journey Through the First Years of Marriage
“Some people rushed into divorce even faster than they rushed into marriage.” ― Mokokoma Mokhonoana
“If she wants I can find a hundred men and line them up before her naked, and she can pick the one she likes,” the king said. “I would sooner she wed a lord, but if she prefers a hedge knight or a merchant or Pate the Pig Boy, I am past the point of caring, so long as she picks someone.” ― George R.R. Martin, Fire & Blood

And I want to fly away from here, but that wouldn’t happen anytime soon, would it?

“The queen has dismissed us,” Arabella announced.
I dropped into a deep curtsy. “Your Majesty.”

“Get out!” Nevada growled.” ― Ilona Andrews, Diamond Fire

“Muslim matchmaking services have completely evolved by resolving the needs of Muslim users with their highly efficient Muslim matrimony sites.” ― Nikah Destiny
“Nobody died at our wedding.” ― JoAnna Carl, The Chocolate Bridal Bash
“True Love never needs the Expression of Words, It Speaks the Language Blessed by God and when it speaks, Only Miracles Happen.”
REMEMBER: The best Expression of love is sending message for ““Nikah” (Marriage) to the guardians of the one you like or love, if you are true to someone and approaching him/her by choosing the “Sirat e Mustaqeem” (Guide us on the straight path) you will tell people that ““Nikah” (Marriage)” is miraculous. “LOVE” is not something that becomes your weakness; it’s something that becomes your Strength by caring for you, keeping you on right track, like your parents love you truly, they sacrifice everything for you and want you to become a good human being in the society, to become a role model for the coming generations with great character, I understand no body is perfect, including me and it’s really hard to keep yourself on right track in this era but we must priorities the things, like becoming someone that can have a great life by recognizing the purpose of it , then making your parents proud by working on it, then it comes to the life partner when you are mature enough to take the right decision for that, then there is nothing wrong to like someone and considering him/her as your life partner if they choose the right way to approach each other, they involve their parents and guardians by taking permission, they don’t break the laws of nature, if anyone breaks the laws our Quran tells us
“Women of purity are for men of purity, and men of purity are for women of purity”
— Ayah 26 of Surah an-Nur mentions this wonderful line.
People who are thinking that they can express love in words or in any way by breaking the spiritual, physical and emotional laws like marriage “Nikah” (Marriage), they are making fool of themselves. Once you are in that circle of breaking law, your series of actions becomes the source of sabotages for coming life, your spiritual, emotional and physical patterns are controlled by a gravitation pull of evil. Once you are impure then it’s hard to resist. Remember one thing love does exists in responsibilities of taking care of each-other’s character, no matter how much someone is attractive to you, if he or she is expressing it to create physical desire before marriage, it leads you to the dark part.
I would like to quote saying of Allama Iqbal (RA) at the end,
“People who have no hold over their process of thinking are likely to be ruined by liberty of thought. If thought is immature, liberty of thought becomes a method of converting men into animals.” ― Mohsin Ali Shaukat
“The first three years of our marriage were miserable. Until I got a divorce. A divorce from loving myself and seeking my own way. I was reading the book of Galatians one night when I stumbled on the verse, “I no longer live, but Christ lives in me” (2:20), and the most profound thought hit me: If I am dead, and Christ lives in me, can my wife see Him there? Finding the right person, I have since discovered, is less important than being the right person. The happiest married people I know discovered early on that the “better” comes after the “worse”.” ― Phil Callaway, Family Squeeze: Tales of Hope and Hilarity for a Sandwiched Generation
“I will walk you down the aisle
Having traveled with you on the journey
I’ll shed a tear and give you away all the while” ― Richard L. Ratliff
“We sometimes fall in love at last sight.” ― Mokokoma Mokhonoana
“Marriage gives us the security of tying another person to us-and us to them. But marriage itself also serves as a general wall of protection from illness in ways that cohabitation does not.” ― Glenn T. Stanton, The Ring Makes All the Difference
“This was the wedding menu.
Rounds of Grana Padano
Prosciutto with melon
(The prawn cocktails were at Mrs. Gardner’s insistence. She said she’d never heard of prosciutto and was dubious about meat served with fruit.)
Chicken with white sauce and vegetables, or
Beefsteak with mushrooms and béarnaise sauce
(Alex’s requests. We copied them from the menu of his favorite restaurant.)
Platters of cannoli, cassata, biancumanciari, setteveli, and almond cookies
The desserts were my wish list. Traditional and Sicilian, just the way I wanted them. Mrs. Gardner said she wasn’t “a sweet tooth” (in a way that made it sound like a kind of tribe), and Alex couldn’t care less about dessert. I thought of these desserts when I went to aerobics classes, trying to lose weight before the wedding- imagined the smooth filling of the cannoli, the cool velvet of the cassata, and the toothy crunch of the almond cookies.” ― Hannah Tunnicliffe, Season of Salt and Honey
“You also have to work with the love you are given, with all of the complications clanging behind it like tin cans to a bridal sedan.” ― Tayari Jones, An American Marriage
“The marriage ceremony is sexist beyond parody. The bride appears in a fussy white dress that symbolizes her virtue and virginity, and everyone keeps on remarking on how thin and beautiful she looks. Her father walks her down the aisle to ‘give her away’, and she passes, like property, from one man to another. The minister, who is traditionally a man, gives the man permission to kiss the woman, as if that is in the minister’s authority and the woman has none. The man kisses, the woman is kissed. At the reception, only men are given to speak, while the bride remains seated and silent. Henceforth, the woman will adopt the man’s name, as will their eventual offspring. Despite all this, the wedding day is said to belong to the woman. This, would you believe, is ‘her day’.” ― Neel Burton, For Better For Worse: Should I Get Married?
“You shouldn’t marry someone you thought you could live with, you should marry someone you thought you couldn’t live without.” ― Carole Matthews, For Better, for Worse
“A spouse who refuses to cultivate or fan physical intimacy first devalued the marriage in their mind and priorities. Spouses who defile their marriage bed first lost honor for their marriage.” ― Ngina Otiende, The Wedding Night: Embracing Sexual Intimacy as New Bride
“A shared life is a sacred love.” ― Lailah Gifty Akita
“I suppose that St. George is our own original St. George, who killed the Dragon and afterwards married the grand lady. In many of the marriages of grand ladies, however, which take place in this parish, the preliminary ceremony of the gentleman killing a dragon is often omitted. I am against all this dropping of the full formalities.” ― G.K. Chesterton, The Collected Works of G.K. Chesterton Volume 28: The Illustrated London News, 1908-1910
“A bride will always be the belle of the ball at her own wedding.” ― Anthony T.Hincks
“Dear newlywed wife, somebody out there is determined to shape your view of intimacy and marriage. You get to choose who will shape your opinion; the Author of marriage or offended humans?” ― Ngina Otiende, The Wedding Night: Embracing Sexual Intimacy as New Bride
“She’d always imagined an autumn wedding: russet leaves and black velvets and dancing to Fred Astaire.” ― Hazel Gaynor, The Cottingley Secret
“I also remembered Buddy Willard saying in a sinister, knowing way that after I had children I would feel differently. I wouldn’t want to write poems any more. So I began to think maybe it was true that when you were married and had children it was like being brainwashed, and afterward you went about numb as a slave in some private, totalitarian state.” ― Sylvia Plath, The Bell Jar
“May your wedding night be like a kitchen table, all legs and no drawers.” ― Melinda Heald, The Promise of Sunrise
“Put the masks on! I now pronounce you husband and wife!” ― Ljupka Cvetanova, The New Land
“Like weddings, funerals are about unity. Funerals are the unity of a person with the sweet hereafter, assuming that one believes in such a thing.” ― Rebecca McNutt, Restless Souls and Shallow Graves: A Short Story
“Tutti facciamo delle scelte. Non sempre sono giuste. È il modo in cui ti rialzi che dimostra che tipo di persona sei.” ― Jessica Clare, Beauty and the Billionaire: The Wedding
“A bride never forgets her wedding ornaments, why should we forsake our heavenly Father, the bridegroom?” ― Lailah Gifty Akita
“They celebrated in a bar, and after half a dozen cocktails came to the mutual decision that it would be a blast to get married. So Lisa bought a couple of rings in a pawnshop and they did the deed in the hotel chapel, reading their vows in Klingon off an iPhone in front of a guy in golden robes and Spock ears.” ― Paul McAuley, Into Everywhere
“A bride never forgets her wedding ornaments!” ― Lailah Gifty Akita
“A man holy duty is to love a woman.” ― Lailah Gifty Akita
“What can a man do for a woman while she live her life? You can only show her that you love her.” ― Lailah Gifty Akita
“Where your heart is, there is your treasure of happiness.” ― Lailah Gifty Akita
“A wedding is a series of special moments, strung together like beads on a chain. Sure, by themselves, they are lovely, but put them all together and you get art.”― Sarah Dessen, Once and for All
“Love isn’t just doing what’s right for you but acting selflessly for the benefit of everyone else’s equality.” ― Katrina Majkut, The Adventures and Discoveries of a Feminist Bride: What No One Tells You Before You Say “I Do”
“Dapat Magpaksal Ka Run Agad.” ― Belle Feliz, The Man of My Dreams
“COMMITMENT is like rain in Oregon. You wake up every morning and there it is. It cups your house in its liquid hands and fills your gutters to overflowing. It makes green things grow tall and lush, rivers run deep and invincible. On sunny days it seeps up through petals and pine needles, roots and aqueducts.
Other days, it makes mud too thick for walking, and you cannot leave the house. You pace the house, restless and lonely. Then you smell its perfume in a dry, empty room and part the curtains, watch it finger the window with long, slow rivulets.
From ‘A Compendium of Miniatures” ― Tiffany Lee Brown
“Infidelity doesn’t have to be the most devastating that can happen in a marriage.” ― Carole Matthews, For Better, for Worse
“During the breaking of the glass, he imagined his life until now shattering, too: its ignorance and anguish, its great and petty losses.” ― Chloe Benjamin
“It’s funny how things don’t matter any more when it’s too late.” ― Carole Matthews, For Better, for Worse
“The parquet pressing into her palms and knees. She hated the part of her, small and hot, that enflamed itself being here, on hands and knees. Dirty girl. She burned. She made a vow: she would never crawl for another man. [The gods love to fuck with us, Mathilde would say later; she became a wife.]
“Another?” Ariel said. He dipped it, put it at the end of the hallway, twenty yards away. “Crawl,” he said. He laughed.
The word wife comes from the Proto-Indo-European weip.
Weip means to turn, twist or wrap.
In an alternative etymology, the word wife comes from Proto-etc., ghwibh.
Ghwibh means pudenda. Or shame.” ― Lauren Groff, Fates and Furies

love.” ― Kamand Kojouri

and builds you.
But with you,
there’s no ash.
Just light.” ― Kamand Kojouri

“In modern times couples are more concerned about loyalty than love.” ― Amit Kalantri, Wealth of Words
“Most women would each be left with fewer dreams or without a dream, if the institution of marriage were to be abolished.” ― Mokokoma Mokhonoana
“The one thing I hate about the wedding industry is that it focuses so much on the one day. People become obsessed with details, enraged with those they love, worn out from planning a few hours of a day that may not mean that much in the grand scheme of things. Even as I’m designing a dress that will cost thousands and thousands of dollars, I’ve always tried to work that message in. Don’t forget that after this day comes thousands of other days. Be careful. Cherish each other. Don’t blow it.” ― Kristan Higgins, If You Only Knew
“Marriage is the beginning of love for your spouse, not the result of it.” ― Shannon L. Alder
“It said if you were nervous about committing yourself to marriage and it was because you doubted yourself and whether you would make a good partner, then that was only natural and you should go ahead.

“Well?” said Loki. “What about you, Heimdall? Do you have any suggestions?”
“I do,” said Heimdall. “But you won’t like it.”
Thor banged his fist down upon the table. “It does not matter whether or not we like it,” he said. “We are gods! There is nothing that any of us gathered here would not do to get back Mjollnir, the hammer of the gods. Tell us your idea, and if it is a good idea, we will like it.”
“You won’t like it,” said Heimdall.
“We will like it!” said Thor.
“Well,” said Heimdall, “I think we should dress Thor as a bride. Have him put on the necklace of the Brisings. Have him wear a bridal crown. Stuff his dress so he looks like a woman. Veil his face. We’ll have him wear keys that jingle, as women do, drape him with jewels -“
“I don’t like it!” said Thor. “People will think… well, for a start they’ll think I dress up in women’s clothes. Absolutely out of the question. I don’t like it. I am definitely not going to be wearing a bridal veil. None of us like this idea, do we? Terrible, terrible idea. I’ve got a beard. I can’t shave off my beard.”
“Shut up, Thor,” said Loki son of Laufey. “It’s an excellent idea.” ― Neil Gaiman
“It’s an extraordinary thing to meet someone who you can bare your soul to. And who will accept you for what you are. I’ve been waiting, what seems like a very long time, to get beyond what I am. And with Bella, I feel like I can finally begin. So I’d like to propose a toast to my beautiful bride. No measure of time with you will be long enough. But let’s start with forever.” ― Breaking Dawn Part 1 Film

“May your union be filled with love
Annealed by passion
Built on a strong foundation
And tempered by time” ― Richard L. Ratliff
“When Sweetu wasn’t being reduced to merely existing as a bride, as a piece of meat to be handled and prodded, to have decorative contraptions stuck into her skull, her interests were otherwise unexpressed. She rarely complained, hardly asked for anything, and maybe that’s because Indian girls grow up going to weddings and we watch the procedure and we know our roles: be demure, don’t complain, cry but don’t scream, get tea for anyone older than you, and calmly meet expectations.” ― Scaachi Koul, One Day We’ll All Be Dead and None of This Will Matter
“The relationship was perfect, but I hated everything about the person I became.” ― Darnell Lamont Walker

Plight me the full assurance of your faith.” ― William Shakespeare, Twelfth Night

“Kiss softly.” ― Lailah Gifty Akita
