Husband quotes by Francis George
#1. That question in marriage is mutual submission, really - the next verse goes on: "husbands love your wife as Christ loves the Church." #Quote by Francis George
Husband quotes by Oscar Wilde
#2. On the whole, the great success of marriage in the States is due partly to the fact that no American man is ever idle, and partly to the fact that no American wife is considered responsible for the quality of her husband's dinners. #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Husband quotes by Richard Von Krafft-Ebing
#3. I have also fantasised myself to be his female slave, but this does not suffice, for after all every woman can be the slave of her husband. #Quote by Richard Von Krafft-Ebing
Husband quotes by Wendell Berry
#4. To husband is to use with care, to keep, to save, to make last, to conserve. Old usage tells us that there is a husbandry also of the land, of the soil, of the domestic plants and animals - obviously because of the importance of these things to the household. And there have been times, one of which is now, when some people have tried to practice a proper human husbandry of the nondomestic creatures in recognition of the dependence of our households and domestic life upon the wild world. Husbandry is the name of all practices that sustain life by connecting us conservingly to our places and our world; it is the art of keeping tied all the strands in the living network that sustains us.
And so it appears that most and perhaps all of industrial agriculture's manifest failures are the result of an attempt to make the land produce without husbandry. #Quote by Wendell Berry
Husband quotes by Nora Ephron
#5. If your husband is cheating on you with a carhop, get Meryl Streep to play you. You'll feel much better. #Quote by Nora Ephron
Husband quotes by Brooke Shields
#6. My husband perpetually makes fun of me about my creams and my jars and potions and lotions, but its simpler than anyone makes it: clean, tone, keep yourself moisturized. The rest is internal: Protect yourself from the sun and drink water. #Quote by Brooke Shields
Husband quotes by Darrel Ray
#7. Throughout adolescence, Muslim men receive strong messages about male dominance in Marriage. The Koran is highly male-focused, with women being of little importance. Mohammed married as many women as he wanted, even a nine-year-old girl. Polygamy was acceptable and women were given in marriage with little consideration. Rules and punishments for women are far harsher than for men. [ ... ] Women are told that their purpose is to please the man and have children. Men are taught that sex with an in infidel woman, especially in another country, is not a sin against Allah. For a Muslim woman, sex with any man except her husband is a crime. #Quote by Darrel Ray
Husband quotes by Olga Korbut
#8. Then I was lucky I met with my future husband, and I started new life with my husband, and I was happy again. He was a musician. I start to travel with him through Europe also and around the former Soviet Union. #Quote by Olga Korbut
Husband quotes by Kecia Ali
#9. The legal structure of Islamic marriage is predicated on a gender-differentiated allocation of interdependent claims, which would be thrown into chaos by a same-sex union. In the standard contractual understanding of marriage, the husband holds milk al-nikah, control of the marriage tie, and the wife has a claim to dower and the obligation of sexual exclusivity and availability. Several early jurists considered the possibility of whether these rights and duties could be reallocated – whether a woman could pay a man a dower, for example, and retain control over sex and divorce – and agreed unanimously that such a reallocation is not permitted. Not only are husbands' and wives' rights distinct, but each role is fundamentally linked to the sex/gender of the person exercising it. A woman cannot wield control of the marriage tie; a man cannot be contractually bound to sexual availability to his wife. Thus, following that logic, it would not be possible for one woman to adopt the "husband" role and the other to adopt the "wife" role in the marriage of two women. The self-contained logic of the jurisprudential framework does not permit such an outcome. #Quote by Kecia Ali
Husband quotes by Honore De Balzac
#10. Between the daylight gambler and the player at night there is the same difference that lies between a careless husband and the lover swooning under his lady's window. #Quote by Honore De Balzac
Husband quotes by Frederick Lenz
#11. Observe how women defeat each other; whether it's simply for a promotion, for a husband, for survival, so she won't be beaten up in a relationship. She has to now fear every other woman because every woman represents a threat to her. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Husband quotes by Ann Landers
#12. Women's magazines continue to print 'helpful' articles on How to Hang on to Your Husband while thousands of wives write to me and complain that 'hanging is too good for 'em. #Quote by Ann Landers
Husband quotes by Philippa Gregory
#13. Say yes,' he whispers. 'Marry me.'

I hesitate. I open my eyes. 'You will get my fortune,' I remark. 'When I marry you, everything I have becomes yours. Just as George has everything that belongs to Isabel.'

'That's why you can trust me to win it for you,' he says simply. 'When your interests and mine are the same, you can be certain that I will care for you as for myself. You will be my own. You will find that I care for my own.'

'You will be true to me?'

'Loyalty is my motto. When I give my word, you can trust me. #Quote by Philippa Gregory
Husband quotes by Jean Carroll
#14. [On her husband:] The other day he woke up with a headache. I felt sorry for him. I would like to help him but I can't. I told him so many times. When he jumps out of bed - it should be feet first. #Quote by Jean Carroll
Husband quotes by Hirokazu Koreeda
#15. I don't believe in making movies to cater to a foreign audience. You never know what the reaction is going to be anyhow. At the time I made Maborosi, the Japanese movies getting any foreign attention were all period dramas and seemed to be about some representative element of Japanese life, and my movie was contemporary movie about one specific woman trying to understand her husband's suicide. #Quote by Hirokazu Koreeda
Husband quotes by Greil Marcus
#16. Renee's self-possession, her ability to possess other selves, is a measure of the weakness of her husband, his inability to stop his own self from splitting in half. #Quote by Greil Marcus
Husband quotes by Mary Astell
#17. But, alas! what poor Woman is ever taught that she should have a higher Design than to get her a Husband? #Quote by Mary Astell
Husband quotes by Beyonce Knowles
#18. I love my husband, but it is nothing like a conversation with a woman that understands you. I grow so much from those conversations. #Quote by Beyonce Knowles
Husband quotes by Princess Margaret
#19. It was while Princess Margaret was attending a high-society party in New York that the hostess asked her politely how the Queen was keeping. "Which one?" she is reported to have replied with her typically razor-sharp wit. "My sister, my mother or my husband? #Quote by Princess Margaret
Husband quotes by Oscar Wilde
#20. It's most dangerous nowadays for a husband to pay any attention to his wife in public. It always makes people think that he beats her when they are alone. The world has grown so suspicious of anything that looks like a happy married life. #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Husband quotes by Bonnie Hammer
#21. I'm very lucky that my husband is a true partner in child-rearing. If I get home late, he gets home early or vice-versa. I travel more, and he's able to spell me when I'm gone. #Quote by Bonnie Hammer
Husband quotes by Emily Watson
#22. My husband. He keeps me grounded. If I were in the world on my own, it would all be much more seductive. But I'm in a relationship that has nothing to do with the film world. #Quote by Emily Watson
Husband quotes by Wallace Stegner
#23. [I]t is dangerous for a bride to be apologetic about her husband. #Quote by Wallace Stegner
Husband quotes by Charles Dickens
#24. All the air round was so thick and dark, the people were so passionately revengeful and fitful, the innocent were so constantly put to death on vague suspicion and black malice, it was so impossible to forget that many as blameless as her husband and as dear to others as he was to her, every day shared the fate from which he had been clutched, that her heart could not be as lightened of its load as she felt it ought to be. #Quote by Charles Dickens
Husband quotes by Jodi Kantor
#25. Interpreting anyone's marriage - a neighbor's, let alone the president's - is extremely difficult. And yet, examining the first couple's relationship - their negotiations of public and private life, of conflicts and compromises - offers hints about Barack Obama the president, not just Barack Obama the husband. #Quote by Jodi Kantor
Husband quotes by Stephanie Coontz
#26. High male earnings have also become less important to women. A 2001 poll in the United States found that 80 percent of women in their twenties believed that having a husband who can talk about his feelings was more important than having one who makes a good living.11 #Quote by Stephanie Coontz
Husband quotes by Nicole Krauss
#27. Because it hardly ends with falling in love. Just the opposite. I don't need to tell you, Your Honor, I sense that you understand true loneliness. How you fall in love and it's there that the work begins: day after day, year after year, you must dig yourself up, exhume the contents of your mind and sould for the other to sift through so that you might be known to him, and you, too, must spend days and years wading through all that he excavates for you alone, the archaeology of his being, how exhausting it became, the digging up and the wading through, while my own work, my true work, lay waiting for me. Yes, I always thought there would be more time left for me, more time left for us, and for the child we might one day have, but I never felt that my work could be put aside as they could, my husband and the idea of our child, a little boy or girl that I sometimes even tried to imagine, but always only vaguely enough that he or she remained a ghostly emissary of our future, just her back while she sat playing with her blocks on the floor, or just his feet sticking out of the blanket on our bed, a tiny pair of feet. What of it, there would be time for them, for the life they stood for, the one I was not yet prepared to live because I had not yet done what I had meant to do in this one. #Quote by Nicole Krauss
Husband quotes by Nick Cutter
#28. You know what my sister said to me once? She said that maybe the best thing about having a child, especially a young one, was that you could love that child shamelessly. She said that you could put everything into that kid, love crazily, give everything in your heart and mind and soul over to that other person. You can't do that for a husband or a wife, not really. The only other entity you could love that way would be God, if you're a believer. #Quote by Nick Cutter
Husband quotes by Denise Hunter
#29. Maybe he should go after her. Maybe he hadn't tried hard enough. Maybe she was missing him as much as he missed her. Finding her would be a challenge, but that had never stopped him before. Surely she'd left a forwarding address with the post office. But no. That's what her psycho, controlling late husband would have done: hunt her down. She needed to be free to make her own choice. And she had. #Quote by Denise Hunter
Husband quotes by Gail Collins
#30. Certainly Nancy Reagan had an extraordinary effect on her husband. I'm truly not sure that, say, Laura Bush had that much effect on the Bush administration. She certainly, you know, seems to be a nice person who I think the public likes. But I can't really put my finger on any huge impact she's had. #Quote by Gail Collins
Husband quotes by Georgina Chapman
#31. What I love about my husband is that he really allows me to be the best person I can. #Quote by Georgina Chapman
Husband quotes by Tina Fey
#32. Yeah, it's tough being smart and sexy, too. I have to say, I'm really not that attractive. Until I met my husband, I could not get a date. I promise you it's true. My husband Jeff Richmond saw a diamond in the rough and took me in. #Quote by Tina Fey
Husband quotes by Oscar Wilde
#33. London is full of women who trust their husbands. One can always recognize them. They look so thoroughly unhappy. #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Husband quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
#34. Moreover, I have boundary issues with men. Or maybe that's not fair to say. To have issues with boundaries, one must have boundaries in the first place, right? But I disappear into
the person I love. I am the permeable membrane. If I love you, you can have everything. You can have my time, my devotion, my ass, my money, my family, my dog, my dog's money, my
dog's time - everything. If I love you, I will carry for you all your pain, I will assume for you all your debts (in every definition of the word), I will protect you from your own insecurity, I will project upon you all sorts of good qualities that you have never actually cultivated in yourself and I will buy Christmas presents for your entire family. I will give you the sun and the rain, and if they are not available, I will give you a sun check and a rain check. I will give you all this and more, until I get so exhausted and depleted that the only way I can recover my energy is by becoming infatuated with someone else.
I do not relay these facts about myself with pride, but this is how it's always been.
Some time after I'd left my husband, I was at a party and a guy I barely knew said to me, "You know, you seem like a completely different person, now that you're with this new boyfriend. You used to look like your husband, but now you look like David. You even dress like
him and talk like him. You know how some people look like their dogs? I think maybe you always look like your men. #Quote by Elizabeth Gilbert
Husband quotes by Elena Ferrante
#35. One April afternoon, right after lunch, my husband announced that he wanted to leave me. #Quote by Elena Ferrante
Husband quotes by Philip K. Dick
#36. I've married before and it was no better, and if I divorce Kathy I'll marry again - because as my brainbasher puts it I can't find my identity outside the role of husband and daddy and big butter-and-egg-man wage earner - and the next damn one will be the same because that's the kind I select. It's rooted in my temperament. #Quote by Philip K. Dick
Husband quotes by Gillian Flynn
#37. I do know that framing your husband for your murder is beyond the pale of what an average would do. But it's so very necessary. #Quote by Gillian Flynn
Husband quotes by Grete Waitz
#38. Running gives me a clearer perspective on the world ... I've always seen the world by running, and that has allowed me to view things in a different way. Places look different in the early-morning hours, when the streets are deserted. I've smelled crabs boiling on Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco on my way to the Golden Gate Bridge, watched the sun rise over Diamond Head in Hawaii, and seen deer grazing on the Alps in St. Moritz, Switzerland. I clearly remember turning to my husband, Jack, in one of these places and saying, 'People don't know what they're missing.' #Quote by Grete Waitz
Husband quotes by Joseph Heller
#39. Dear Mrs., Mr., Miss, or Mr. and Mrs. Daneeka: Words cannot express the deep personal grief I experienced when your husband, son, father, or brother was killed, wounded, or reported missing in action. #Quote by Joseph Heller
Husband quotes by Marilynne Robinson
#40. She kept saying, "My husband will be back soon. He went for help. He'll be back." But that's the kind of lie people tell sometimes when they got only strangers to rely on. There's shame in that, so people lie. #Quote by Marilynne Robinson
Husband quotes by Beth Fantaskey
#41. You will not address me as if I'm not even here - unless you want to join Lucius in the dungeons. And then we'll see how long you last without blood, because you are two hundred years older and nowhere near as strong as my husband. #Quote by Beth Fantaskey
Husband quotes by Mitch Albom
#42. If you find one true friend in life, you're richer than most. If that one true friend is your husband, you're blessed. #Quote by Mitch Albom
Husband quotes by Simone De Beauvoir
#43. The truth is that just as - biologically - males and females are never victims of one another but both victims of the species, so man and wife together undergo the oppression of an institution they did not create. If it is asserted that men oppress women, the husband is indignant; he feels that he is the one who is oppressed - and he is; but the fact is that it is the masculine code, it is the society developed by the males and in their interest, that has established woman's situation in a form that is at present a source of torment for both sexes. #Quote by Simone De Beauvoir
Husband quotes by Julia Quinn
#44. Eloise," Penelope said, somewhat breathless from trying to shake off
Hyacinth.
"Penelope." But Eloise's voice sounded curious. Which did not
surprise Penelope; Eloise was no fool, and she was well aware that her
brother's normal modes of behavior did not include beatific smiles in her
direction.
"Eloise," Hyacinth said, for no reason Penelope could deduce.
"Hyacinth."
Penelope turned to her husband. "Colin."
He looked amused. "Penelope. Hyacinth."
Hyacinth grinned. "Colin." And then: "Sir Phillip."
"Ladies." Sir Phillip, it seemed, favored brevity.
"Stop!" Eloise burst out. "What is going on?"
"A recitation of our Christian names, apparently," Hyacinth said. #Quote by Julia Quinn
Husband quotes by Jojo Moyes
#45. She was so ridiculously happy that most days she didn't know how to contain it. Every morning before dawn she would unwrap her long limbs reluctantly from those of her husband, drink the coffee he insisted on making for her, then walk down to open the library and get the stove going, ready for the others to arrive. Despite the cold and the brutal hour, she was almost always to be found smiling. If Peggy Van Cleve's friends chose to remark that Alice Guisler had let herself go something awful since she'd started up at that library, what with her un-set hair and her mannish outfits (and to think her so refined and well-dressed when she came, and all!), then Fred couldn't have noticed less. He was married to the most beautiful woman in the world, and every night after they had each finished work, and put away the dishes side by side, he made sure to pay homage. In the still air of Split Creek it was not unusual for those who were walking past in the darkness to shake an amused head at the breathless and joyous sounds emanating from the house behind the library. In Baileyville, in winter, there was not much to do after the sun went down, after all. #Quote by Jojo Moyes
Husband quotes by Susan Fletcher
#46. I told her that letting go is not a choice, in many ways. You try to move on, perhaps. But it comes of its own accord, in the end; it happens when it is ready to, and it mostly comes by without announcement or being noticed at all. I'll always miss my husband. I won't ever be the person I was before ... You don't mend fully, I tell her. But you mend enough, in time. #Quote by Susan Fletcher
Husband quotes by Jean Webster
#47. I went to bed last night utterly dejected; I thought I was never going to amount to anything, and that you had thrown away your money for nothing. But what do you think? I woke up this morning with a beautiful new plot in my head, and I've been going about all day planning my characters, just as happy as I could be. No one can ever accuse me of being a pessimist! If I had a husband and twelve children swallowed by an earthquake one day, I'd bob up smilingly the next morning and commence to look for another set. ~Jershua Abbott #Quote by Jean Webster
Husband quotes by Margaret Way
#48. Every man is a bachelor out of his wife's sight! #Quote by Margaret Way
Husband quotes by Cho Se-Hui
#49. He said that every day without a fail when he commuted on the packed buses he saw city garbage trucks leaving on their rounds several at a time. Shin-ae understands what her husband is saying. She wonders how many souls a day are loaded into those garbage trucks and then disposed of. (Cho 2006: 16) #Quote by Cho Se-Hui
Husband quotes by Nancy Glynn
#50. How did you know what I was thinking?" Her body jolted at the touch of his hand, wanting more than his hand touching her.
"I know these things. I can read your mind."
"Oh." A heat singed her skin.
"I know about your husband, Richard. He's not good. #Quote by Nancy Glynn
Husband quotes by Jay Crownover
#51. I almost fell off my stool. Not because I didn't think he loved Shaw, or that he would make an awesome husband, but because he was my impulsive, wild, unhinged little brother. Rule was not a guy that I ever thought would settle into the role of responsible homeowner and faithful husband. I just stared at him until he got mad and snapped. #Quote by Jay Crownover
Husband quotes by Betty Friedan
#52. We can no longer ignore that voice within women that says: 'I want something more than my husband and my children and my home.' #Quote by Betty Friedan
Husband quotes by Kylie Mansfield
#53. Whispering Echoes, a contemporary fiction with Gothic undertones...

Death is not the greatest loss in life. The greatest loss is what dies inside us while we still live…

This is the tale of two women standing at opposite ends of the tunnel of life. Sally Donaldson is at the beginning, whilst Miss Bella Connelly , is at the end.

The story opens in the winter of 1990. Sally is a young woman on the verge of a breakdown, slowly drowning in the sorrow of an unimaginable loss. When her husband sends her to Brackenleigh Manor to recover, she encounters the unconventional healing methods of Miss Bella Connelly.

Sally quickly discovers that the manor itself harbor's its own sorrow, and the secrets that lay within the old groaning house are none other than the sad Whispering Echoes of Miss Bella Connelly's past.

The Story then shifts back to 1939 – Britain on the eve of WW2 – and reveals the secrets and lies that transform Bella, and completely change the lives of all who meet Miss Bella after.

The events that carved and marked Miss Bella's journey finally draw Sally out of her own shadows and back into life.

For it is within Miss Bella's story, that Sally learns that life has a measure that no one can count…

A measure that far outweighs Death… #Quote by Kylie Mansfield
Husband quotes by Julianna Margulies
#54. I know this is going to sound corny, but I love my life. I love my baby, so I love getting to wake up with him. And I have the most amazing job, with writing that any actor would love and costars who I can't wait to see on Monday mornings. And I love coming home to my husband. #Quote by Julianna Margulies
Husband quotes by Rob Sheffield
#55. The Stones suggested that if you dabble in decadence, you could turn into a devil-worshipping junkie. Paul McCartney suggested that if you mess around with girl worship, you could turn into a husband. So Paul was a lot scarier. #Quote by Rob Sheffield
Husband quotes by Julie Garwood
#56. Can we get on with this?" Father Laggan cried out. "In the name of the Father…"
"I'm inviting my aunt Millicent and uncle Herbert to come for a visit, Iain, and I'm not going through the council to get permission first."
"… and of the Son," the priest continued in a much louder voice.
"She'll be wanting King John next," Duncan predicted.
"We can't allow that, lass," Owen muttered.
"Please join hands now and concentrate on this ceremony," Father Laggan shouted, trying to gain everyone's attention.
"I don't want King John to come here," Judith argued. She turned to frown at Owen for making such a shameful suggestion. "I want my aunt and uncle. I'm getting them, too." She turned and had to peek around Graham in order to look up at Iain. "Yes or no, Iain."
"We'll see. Graham, I'm marrying Judith, not you. Let go of her hand. Judith, move over here."
Father Laggan gave up trying to maintain order. He continued on with the ceremony. Iain was paying some attention. He immediately agreed to take Judith for his wife.She wasn't as cooperative. He felt a little sorry for the sweet woman. She looked thoroughly
confused.
"Judith, do you take Iain for your husband?"
She looked up at Iain before giving her answer. "We'll see."
"That won't do, lass. You've got to say I do," he advised.
"Do I?"
Iain smiled. "Your aunt and uncle will be welcomed here."
She smiled back.
....
Judith tried not to laugh. She turne #Quote by Julie Garwood
Husband quotes by Kevin Hart
#57. The second time around, I'll understand that, as a husband, my wife doesn't care about my opinions. I just need to tell her the things that will continue to help me stack the brownie points. #Quote by Kevin Hart
Husband quotes by Red Buttons
#58. Sonny Von Bulow, who said to her husband Claus on their honeymoon, Stop needling me. Never got a dinner! #Quote by Red Buttons
Husband quotes by Stephanie Grace Whitson
#59. The husband has the right to avenge himself if his wife is unfaithful. The village has known for many moons that White Eagle planned to steal Prairie Flower away from Howling Wolf. Howling Wolf has learned of this and punished his wife. #Quote by Stephanie Grace Whitson
Husband quotes by Gail Carriger
#60. Which was why, some six hours later, Alexia Maccon's daughter was born inside the head of an octomaton in the presence of her husband, a comatose werewolf dandy, and a French inventor. #Quote by Gail Carriger
Husband quotes by Allison Winn Scotch
#61. We all have those moments where we realize how easily our lives could be so different, for better or for worse. I met my husband at a gym in NYC! What if I'd joined a different gym? What if I hadn't worked out in the afternoons? These questions are endless. #Quote by Allison Winn Scotch
Husband quotes by Debbie Macomber
#62. I generally read every night befi=ore I fall asleep: Brad does too. I find it comforting to lie beside my husband, each of us with a book in our hands. I see it as a period of calm and intimacy, and as the perfect metaphor-together, yet individual-for our marriage. #Quote by Debbie Macomber
Husband quotes by Malina Suliman
#63. For those 10 months back in Afghanistan after university, I felt I had no rights. It felt like I didn't exist. It was like I was their doll, and I was lost, somehow. My sister's husband brought me to an art gallery. It had a big effect on me. #Quote by Malina Suliman
Husband quotes by Vanessa Diffenbaugh
#64. My husband and I have been involved with foster youth since our early 20s. Right out of college and not yet married, we spent weekends mentoring a family of young girls. #Quote by Vanessa Diffenbaugh
Husband quotes by Richie Sambora
#65. You know, no matter what I am or what I do for a living, I'm still, you know, the husband and the dad and the protector of the house, and I have to be conscientious about that. #Quote by Richie Sambora
Husband quotes by Dakota Johnson
#66. The idea of being at home and picking up kids from school and cooking dinner and then the husband comes home - there's something that seems really nice to me 'cause I never had that growing up. And it seems so enticing. But in my mind, I'm like, 'Well, I'll just play that in a movie and go about my own life, bizarre as it is.' #Quote by Dakota Johnson
Husband quotes by Jacqueline Kelly
#67. Lula," I said, "do you ever think about getting married?"
I guess I do. Doesn't everybody?"
You have to let your husband kiss you once you're married. And you have to kiss him back."
No," she said.
Yes." I nodded, as if I knew everything there was to know about husbands and wives kissing. "That's what they do together."
Do you have to?"
Oh, absolutely. It's the law."
I never heard of that law," she said dubiously.
It's true, it's Texas law," I said. #Quote by Jacqueline Kelly
Husband quotes by Buchi Emecheta
#68. The first book I wrote was The Bride Price which was a romantic book, but my husband burnt the book when he saw it. I was the typical African woman, I'd done this privately, I wanted him to look at it, approve it and he said he wouldn't read it. #Quote by Buchi Emecheta
Husband quotes by Alicia Suskin Ostriker
#69. Wanting All

Husband, it's fine the way your mind performs
Like a circus, sharp
As a sword somebody has
To swallow, rough as a bear,
Complicated as a family of jugglers,
Brave as a sequined trapeze
Artist, the only boy I ever met
Who could beat me in argument
Was why I married you, isn't it,
And you have beaten me, I've beaten you,
We are old polished hands.

Or was it your body, I forget, maybe
I foresaw the thousands on thousands
Of times we have made love
Together, mostly meat
And potatoes love, but sometimes
Higher than wine,
Better than medicine.
How lately you bite, you baby,
How angels record and number
Each gesture, and sketch
Our spinal columns like professionals.

Husband, it's fine how we cook
Dinners together while drinking,
How we get drunk, how
We gossip, work at our desks, dig in the garden,
Go to the movies, tell
The children to clear the bloody table,
How we fit like puzzle pieces.
The mind and body satisfy
Like windows and furniture in a house.
The windows are large, the furniture solid.
What more do I want then, why
Do I prowl the basement, why
Do I reach for your inside
Self as you shut it
Like a trunkful of treasures? Wait,
I cry, as the lid slams on my fingers. #Quote by Alicia Suskin Ostriker
Husband quotes by Donna Karan
#70. I wouldn't be who I am without my husband, who handled the business end of Donna Karan so I could be creative. #Quote by Donna Karan
Husband quotes by Israel Shenker
#71. A [Jewish] woman could not divorce her husband, but she could petition for divorce, and the religious courts could force him to grant the divorce on grounds of impotence, denial of conjugal rights, or unreasonable restriction of her freedom-for example, preventing her from attending funerals or wedding parties. #Quote by Israel Shenker
Husband quotes by Susan B. Anthony
#72. There is not the woman born who desires to eat the bread of dependence, no matter whether it be from the hand of father, husband, or brother; for any one who does so eat her bread places herself in the power of the person from whom she takes it. #Quote by Susan B. Anthony
Husband quotes by Amy Chua
#73. I was raised, myself, by extremely strict but also extremely loving Chinese immigrant parents. To this day, I believe that their having high expectations for me, coupled with love, was the greatest gift that anyone's ever given me. And so that's why, even though my husband is not Chinese, I try to raise my own two daughters the same way. #Quote by Amy Chua
Husband quotes by Deborah Harkness
#74. She will have reason in future to thank you for it," said Mary. Her face was serious. "We women own nothing absolutely, save what lies between our ears. Our virtue belongs first to our father and then to our husband. We dedicate our duty to our family. As soon as we share our thoughts with another, put pen to paper or thread a needle, all that we do and make belongs to someone else. So long as she has words and ideas, Annie will always possess something that is hers alone." "If #Quote by Deborah Harkness
Husband quotes by Alfred Lord Tennyson
#75. As the husband is the wife is; thou art mated with a clown, As the grossness of his nature will have weight to drag thee down. #Quote by Alfred Lord Tennyson
Husband quotes by Julia Ward Howe
#76. I have never known my husband to approve any act of mine which I myself valued. #Quote by Julia Ward Howe
Husband quotes by Ron Chernow
#77. Mr. Monroe, if you have come to tell me that you repent, that you are sorry, very sorry, for the misrepresentations and the slanders and the stories you circulated against my dear husband, if you have come to say this, I understand it. But otherwise, no lapse of time, no nearness to the grave, makes any difference. #Quote by Ron Chernow
Husband quotes by Tony Curtis
#78. We often don't think of them, we think of the great wars and the great battles, but what about losing a son or a daughter, or a girl losing her husband or vice versa? I think of the people who never got the chance to have the opportunities I had. #Quote by Tony Curtis
Husband quotes by Raymond Francis
#79. the same reason you can't turn a hoe into a housewife, is the same reason you can't turn a thug into a husband. Hoes and thugs both love being out in the street. It's just in their nature. It is just way too hard to get them to stay their asses at home and chill. #Quote by Raymond Francis
Husband quotes by Patricia Richardson
#80. They see me as being this Super Mom on TV who also can more than handle a difficult husband, and they assume I'm going to be just full of wisdom as a mother and wife myself. #Quote by Patricia Richardson
Husband quotes by Gwen Stefani
#81. My priorities are always going to be my husband and my family now. That's a huge, huge thing. #Quote by Gwen Stefani
Husband quotes by Jennifer Probst
#82. You will serve your husband dinner tonight by your own hand ... not because you are beneath him ... because you are more. #Quote by Jennifer Probst
Husband quotes by Dolly Parton
#83. A real important thing is that, though I rely on my husband for love, I rely on myself for strength. #Quote by Dolly Parton
Husband quotes by Direct Hits
#84. Winston Churchill was famous for his SARCASTIC and SARDONIC comments. Here are two well-known examples: Bessie Braddock: Sir, you are a drunk. Churchill: Madame, you are ugly. In the morning I shall be sober, and you will still be ugly. Nancy Astor: Sir, if you were my husband, I would give you poison. Churchill: If I were your husband, I would take it. #Quote by Direct Hits
Husband quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#85. Well-Spirit," she said conversationally, "since I've had such bad luck in finding the kind of husband I always thought I wanted, I'm leaving it up to you. No requirements, no conditions. What I wish for is…the right man for me. I'm prepared to be open-minded. #Quote by Lisa Kleypas
Husband quotes by Graham Greene
#86. Time has its revenges, but revenge seems so often sour. Wouldn't we all do better not trying to understand, accepting the fact that no human being will ever understand another, not a wife with a husband, nor a parent a child? Perhaps that's why men have invented God – a being capable of understanding. #Quote by Graham Greene
Husband quotes by Philip Schultz
#87. Am I the I she tried to save, still lopsided with trying to be a little less or more, escaping who I was a minute ago? #Quote by Philip Schultz
Husband quotes by Jalina Mhyana
#88. I cut our paper dinner with a pair of scissors borrowed from the front desk of the hotel. I cooked with a spice rack box of crayons – sixteen colors. I seasoned the pumpkin pie with orange crayon, and basted the turkey's crisp skin in brown. I was remorseless with my sketchbook abattoir, playing the part of carnivore just as surely as I was play-acting the role of wife. I may as well have been a wax figure in a dollhouse eating the wax-scented food. #Quote by Jalina Mhyana
Husband quotes by William McBrien
#89. woman marries, falls out of love with her husband after a time, and then if a male child arrives, shifts her passion from father to son. Something #Quote by William McBrien
Husband quotes by Jane Leeves
#90. Before I met my husband, I was just about to look into adoption. #Quote by Jane Leeves
Husband quotes by Ellen F. Davis
#91. That the Old Testament represents God chiefly as angry Judge and vicious Warrior is a false stereotype. While these images are not absent, they are more than balanced by striking portrayals of God as Lover or Husband, infatuated with Israel beyond all reason or deserving. God is not too proud to grieve terribly over Israel's unfaithfulness, nor to be giddy over her return home. ... [This covenant's] primary quality is love at the highest pitch of intensity. (pg. 77) #Quote by Ellen F. Davis
Husband quotes by Julia Quinn
#92. I'll talk to my mother," she promised. "If I'm sufficiently
annoying, I'm sure I can get the engagement period
cut in half."
"It makes me wonder," he said. "As your future husband,
should I be concerned by your use of the phrase if
I'm sufficiently annoying?"
"Not if you accede to all of my wishes."
"A sentence that concerns me even more," he murmured.
She did nothing but smile. #Quote by Julia Quinn
Husband quotes by Shazia Mirza
#93. I'm a Muslim and I'm really looking forward to my wedding day. I can't wait to meet my husband. #Quote by Shazia Mirza
Husband quotes by Tracy Malone
#94. A narcissist can be your husband, wife, mother, father, sister, brother, boyfriend, girlfriend, neighbor, boss, church member or anyone you come in contact with. There is endless possibilities of "who" they can be. The important thing to remember is the actions, behaviors are all very similar. #Quote by Tracy Malone
Husband quotes by J.K. Rowling

Husband quotes by Philippa Gregory
#96. But I want to be loved. I have always been loved. I want my husband to love me with a passion, like in a troubadour tale, like a knight. #Quote by Philippa Gregory
Husband quotes by Mikhail Baryshnikov
#97. My mother had a son from previous marriage and her husband died in Second World War. #Quote by Mikhail Baryshnikov
Husband quotes by John Piper
#98. Husbands and wives, recognize that in marriage you have become one flesh. If you live for your private pleasure at the expense of your spouse, you are living against yourself and destroying your joy. But if you devote yourself with all your heart to the holy joy of your spouse, you will also be living for your joy and making a marriage after the image of Christ and His church. #Quote by John Piper
Husband quotes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
#99. Love is a holy mystery and ought to be hidden from all other eyes, whatever happens. That makes it holier and better. They respect one another more, and much is built on respect. And if once there has been love, if they have been married for love, why should love pass away? Surely one can keep it! It is rare that one cannot keep it.
And if the husband is kind and straightforward, why should not love last? The first phase of married love will pass, it is true, but then there will come a love that is better still. Then there will be the union of souls, they will have everything in common, there will be no secrets between them. And once they have children, the most difficult times will seem to them happy, so long as there is love and courage.
Even toil will be a joy, you may deny yourself bread for your children and even that will be a joy, They will love you for it afterwards; so you are laying by for your future.
As the children grow up you feel that you are an example, a support for them; that even after you die your children will always keep your thoughts and feelings, because they have received them from you, they will take on your semblance and likeness. So you see this is a great duty. #Quote by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Husband quotes by Andie MacDowell
#100. I willingly devoted myself to my children and to my husband. I come from a broken home, and I decided a long time ago that I would put my family ahead of everything. #Quote by Andie MacDowell
Husband quotes by Elizabeth Kostova
#101. He was my husband, my apartment mate, my soul mate, the father of the little plant in my confused soil, the lover who had made me adore his body without inhibition after my years of relative solitude, the person for whom I'd given up my old self. #Quote by Elizabeth Kostova
Husband quotes by Anne Sinclair
#102. I do not believe the accusations against my husband, not for one second. #Quote by Anne Sinclair
Husband quotes by Janice Y.K. Lee
#103. What wonderful and haunting worlds Krys Lee illuminates-a goose for a goose father, a sympathetic wife made bold by her husband's infidelity- all facets of a Korea and a Korean America made new by this exciting writer's entrancing vision. #Quote by Janice Y.K. Lee
Husband quotes by Nadia Hashimi
#104. We were pressed against each other, a husband and wife bound together not by marriage, but by the harmony of our hearts. Death could not undo us, I'd learned. My hamsar was with me still. He would watch over us, my beloved husband, as we made our way into tomorrow. #Quote by Nadia Hashimi
Husband quotes by Brenda Ueland
#105. We should all know this: that listening is not talking; [it] is the gifted and great role and the imaginative role. And the true listener is much more beloved, magnetic than the talker, and he is more effective, and learns more and does more good. And so try listening. Listen to your wife, your husband, your father, your mother, your children, your friends; to those who love you and those who don't, to those who bore you, to your enemies. It will work a small miracle. And perhaps a great one. #Quote by Brenda Ueland
Husband quotes by Adrian Tchaikovsky
#106. I was young at Myna, that first time. When had the change come? He had retreated to here, to Collegium, to spin his awkward webs of intrigue and to lecture at the College. Then, years on, the call had come for action. He had gone to that chest in which he stored his youth and found that, like some armour long unworn, it had rusted away.
He tried to tell himself that this was not like the grumbling of any other man who finds the prime of his life behind him. I need my youth and strength now, as never before. A shame that one could no husband time until one needed it. All his thoughts rang hollow. He was past his best and that was the thorn that would not be plucked from his side. He was no different from any tradesman or scholar who, during a life of indolence, pauses partway up the stairs to think, This was not so hard, yesterday. #Quote by Adrian Tchaikovsky
Husband quotes by Jiddu Krishnamurti
#107. It is important to understand, not intellectually but actually in your daily life, how you have built images about your wife, your husband, your neighbor, your child, your country, your leaders, your politicians, your gods-you have nothing but images. The images create the space between you and what you observe and in that space there is conflict, so what we are going to find out now together is whether it is possible to be free of the space we create, not only outside ourselves but in ourselves, the space which divides people in all their relationships ... #Quote by Jiddu Krishnamurti
Husband quotes by William McDavid
#108. Nadia Bolz-Weber, a Lutheran pastor, was once fuming to her husband against the wrong kind of Christians, and he told her that "every time we draw a line between us and others, Jesus is always on the other side of it."39 #Quote by William McDavid
Husband quotes by Violet Duke
#109. I drag my husband out of bed, hook him up to a coffee to stay awake and make him listen to my plotting and any issues I may be having. I *need* his head-nodding (he's an expert head-nodder). #Quote by Violet Duke
Husband quotes by Esther Perel
#110. My husband deals with pain; I deal with pleasure. They are intimately acquainted. #Quote by Esther Perel
Husband quotes by Maxine Hong Kingston
#111. Daughters-in-law lived with their husbands' parents, not their own; a synonym for marriage in Chinese is taking a daughter-in-law. #Quote by Maxine Hong Kingston
Husband quotes by Deirdre-Elizabeth Parker
#112. I have spent my whole life preparing to be William Wallace's wife. The choices I make are defined by the person I am.
I am Mrs. William Victor Wallace. I am married to a federal felon whom I love unconditionally.
I hold my head high, I take pride in my life and I walk this world without regret.
I will be the perfect wife and my husband deserves nothing less. #Quote by Deirdre-Elizabeth Parker
Husband quotes by Louise Erdrich
#113. She gave her husband such a night of sexual pleasure that his eyes followed her constantly after that, narrow and hot. He grew molten when she passed near other men, and at night they made their own shaking tent. They got teased too much and moved farther off, into the brush, into the nesting ground of shy and holy loons. There, no one could hear them. In solitude they made love until they became gaunt and hungry, pale windigos with aching eyes, tongues of flame. #Quote by Louise Erdrich
Husband quotes by Joyce Banda
#114. It is only when a woman is economically empowered that she can negotiate at household level with her husband about the number of children that body of hers can have. #Quote by Joyce Banda
Husband quotes by Elmore Leonard
#115. A wife's faithful to her husband, subject to him. It's in the bible. #Quote by Elmore Leonard
Husband quotes by Nora Ephron
#116. There were cats; cats I was wildly attached to - my husband and I spoke in cat voices. Once the marriage was over, I never thought of the cats again (until I wrote about them in a novel and disguised them as hamsters). #Quote by Nora Ephron
Husband quotes by Jodi Benson
#117. I can only speak for my husband and myself, but we don't feel like we could do any of this parenting without our faith. #Quote by Jodi Benson
Husband quotes by Mesu Andrews
#118. Children are a gift from the Lord, Jashub, but not essential to a union. The love between husband and wife was God's first gift in the garden. #Quote by Mesu Andrews
Husband quotes by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
#119. Her dignity consists in being unknown to the world; her glory is in the esteem of her husband; her pleasures in the happiness of her family. #Quote by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
Husband quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#120. What kind of wedding would you like?" he asked, and stole another kiss before she could reply.
"The kind that turns you into my husband." She touched the firm line of his mouth with her fingers. "What kind would you like?"
He smiled ruefully. "A fast one. #Quote by Lisa Kleypas
Husband quotes by Peter Mayle

Husband quotes by Lindsay Davenport
#123. I could never have gotten back into my career without the undying support of my husband, who works full time at a stressful job! We decided that we were going to do this as total partners and it is a 50/50 deal with us. #Quote by Lindsay Davenport
Husband quotes by Michele Bachmann
#124. I would agree that President Carter didn't live up to the expectation we all had when he came in 1976. My husband and I were young idealists who worked on his campaign. #Quote by Michele Bachmann
Husband quotes by Tori Amos
#125. A key to keeping your husband is getting him to miss you. That keeps a marriage fresh. #Quote by Tori Amos

Husband quotes by Sarah Rafferty
#127. My husband is from Finland, so every so often I'll throw a Scandinavian-themed party. #Quote by Sarah Rafferty
Husband quotes by Ranjani Ramachandran
#128. Seasons passed by. I always loved to watch the trees in our garden. With the first rain, the leaves would
drench themselves. Slowly they would grow tired of the rain and droop. So would I, grow tired of
waiting for him to look at me, talk to me. Slowly the leaves would dry up, and fall to the ground. It
resembled a naked and shameless woman, trying to woo her husband. And the season would change,
and the leaves would shoot slowly trying to gain the lost vigor. It would start blooming and look in its
best form. The tree would be so overwhelmed by its own beauty that it would call upon the butterfly
and birds. It would make everyone happy. But has anyone wondered how it feels? It feels like me. #Quote by Ranjani Ramachandran
Husband quotes by John Milton
#129. Nothing lovelier can be found In woman, than to study household good, And good works in her husband to promote. #Quote by John Milton
Husband quotes by Virginia Woolf
#130. The good citizen when he opens his door in the evening must be banker, golfer, husband, father; not a nomad wandering the desert, a mystic staring at the sky, a debauchee in the slums of San Francisco, a soldier heading a revolution, a pariah howling with skepticism and solitude. #Quote by Virginia Woolf
Husband quotes by Helen Mirren
#131. Nothing is quite so emotional and passionate as what goes on inside of a family. People are driven to distraction by a father or a mother or a husband. Or a child. #Quote by Helen Mirren
Husband quotes by Debra Anastasia
#132. I don't trust you with him," Cole continued. "I'm certain you'll ruin him. You'll want to make him be something other than what he is. He can't change, Livia. He can't be a normal husband or father - or man. He'll never hold a job. He won't provide you with a cushy house and a decent medical plan." Cole's anger was at odds with the peace of the darkened church. The wall candles flickered as if the change in energy had moved the air. #Quote by Debra Anastasia

Husband quotes by J.K. Rowling
#134. She often felt lonely and drained these days, shuttling between her husband and son, who seemed to exist entirely independently, as alien to each other as landlord and lodger. #Quote by J.K. Rowling
Husband quotes by Mary Wesley
#135. My first husband would never make up his mind in less than five years, so I used to get him to think that whatever course of action needed to be taken was his idea. Then he'd go right ahead. #Quote by Mary Wesley

Husband quotes by Daphne Du Maurier
#137. Seen on her own, the woman was not so remarkable. Tall, angular, aquiline features, with the close-cropped hair which was fashionably called an Eton crop, he seemed to remember, in his mother's day, and about her person the stamp of that particular generation. She would be in her middle sixties, he supposed, the masculine shirt with collar and tie, sports jacket, grey tweed skirt coming to mid-calf. Grey stockings and laced black shoes. He had seen the type on golf courses and at dog shows - invariably showing not sporting breeds but pugs - and if you came across them at a party in somebody's house they were quicker on the draw with a cigarette lighter than he was himself, a mere male, with pocket matches. The general belief that they kept house with a more feminine, fluffy companion was not always true. Frequently they boasted, and adored, a golfing husband. ("Don't Look Now") #Quote by Daphne Du Maurier
Husband quotes by Tehmina Durrani
#138. To me, my husband was my son's murderer. He was also my daughter's molester. A parasite nibbling on the Holy Book, he was Lucifer, holding me by the throat and driving me to sin every night. He was Bhai's destroyer, Amma Sain's tormentor, Ma's humbler and the people's exploiter. He was the rapist of orphans and the fiend that fed on the weak. But over and above all this, he was known to be the man closest to Allah, the one who could reach Him and save us. #Quote by Tehmina Durrani
Husband quotes by Adam Nevill
#139. For Anne and our cub,

Husband quotes by Pam Godwin
#140. Last thing I needed was a fling with some well-to-do, danger-seeking fangirl. She was probably just a bored housewife, looking for the kind of hard fuck she wasn't getting from her uptight husband. #Quote by Pam Godwin
Husband quotes by Jorge Amado
#141. I have already told you Father, more than once: I'm not going to subject myself to a husband chosen for me, I'm not going to bury myself in some planter's kitchen, and I'm not going to be a servant to some doctor or lawyer in Ilhéus. I want to live my own life. When I finish school at the end of the year, I want to go to work in an office #Quote by Jorge Amado
Husband quotes by Foz Meadows
#142. Ariel's cure is a nostrum that tastes of moss and sunsets, scratching my throat like swallowed earth. It sits in the core of me like ice, a steady coolth radiating outwards, soothing my fever; soothing me. I stare up at the painted angels overhead and wonder how unlike them I must be, that I can leave my father and husband to think me dead. #Quote by Foz Meadows
Husband quotes by Ben Lerner
#143. To the distinguished female author's left was her husband, probably also distinguished in some way, who had the look of many husbands: eyebrows perpetually raised a little in a defensive mask of polite interest, signifying boredom. #Quote by Ben Lerner
Husband quotes by Thomas S. Flowers
#144. Rebecca uttered a low dry laugh, not facetiously, but more like a stitch coming apart at the seam. A wound opened. Her eyes were opening to a world she had denied for so long. She looked up at Frank and knew, just like in the books, hatred, real hatred is a Gollum that hides under the mountain of our hearts. It buries itself deep underground where no light can touch. And it waits. Rebecca thought of Tolkien and Bilbo and Frodo and that old grey wizard, she thought that maybe they were right. Perhaps "there are older and fouler things in the deep places of the world - in the deep places of our hearts." And as she sat on the floor with Tom Johnson's Glock aimed at her husband's head, Rebecca looked into the space where his eyes should have been. She looked at what was now only darkness and felt something on the other side, something not her husband, looking back. #Quote by Thomas S. Flowers
Husband quotes by Ayaan Hirsi Ali
#145. As a woman you are better off in life earning your own money. You couldn't prevent your husband from leaving you or taking another wife, but you could have some of your dignity if you didn't have to beg him for financial support. #Quote by Ayaan Hirsi Ali
Husband quotes by A.S. King
#146. No one has proved to me that my husband isn't still alive somewhere in Southeast Asia. So, as far as I'm concerned, if even one man is alive, we own him more than this – than presuming him dead for the sake of tidying paperwork. #Quote by A.S. King
Husband quotes by Annabeth Gish
#147. What scares me? I kind of believe in ghosts. I believe they can wander around, so that scares me. But the stuff that really scares me are the catastrophic events like my husband or children or my family being harmed, or something like that. #Quote by Annabeth Gish
Husband quotes by Laura Bush
#148. If I'm just at the White House, I have meetings in my office, I sign letters, I plan different things. Late in the afternoon, I'll quit working and wait for my husband to get home. #Quote by Laura Bush
Husband quotes by Liz Garbus
#149. Managers all over the world will go crazy when their artists are not touting the party line and making things pretty in the way that they're supposed to, but it's different when your manager is your husband. It's contrary to your soul. That commercial interest presses in upon your whole personal life. #Quote by Liz Garbus

Husband quotes by Laurie Notaro
#152. Okay, okay,' I said to my husband as he picked up a food dehydrator off the table and shot me a look. 'Maybe I did get carried away. Maybe the world won't end in a year, maybe it won't end until 2028, when the Aztec calendar stops.'
'The Bugles will be very old by then,' my husband said. 'They will have lost their snappy crunch.'
'They weren't to eat,' I said. 'They were to put on our fingers and poke the eyes out of looters. #Quote by Laurie Notaro
Husband quotes by Niecy Nash

Husband quotes by Heidi Klum
#154. Your kids are happy if you're happy. And if your love is happy, then everything works. I think a lot of people think once the children are there, it's all about the children. But you can't forget about your best friend, your lover, your husband. #Quote by Heidi Klum
Husband quotes by Sharon Shinn
#155. She told me that Melisande had borne a daughter, and that one day . . . one day she would like for us to meet. And so when your father advertised the fact that he was looking for a husband for his daughter - "
"Advertised," she interrupted.
"Oh, yes. Far and wide. Princess. Beautiful. Nubile. Available to big strong man, with even bigger sword." Mickel thumped his chest. "I was intrigued. I was mortified. I thought I would save the daughter of my mother's best friend from a fate worse than death."
"And if I had been a loud mouthed harridan with a taste for garlic and a fear of bathing?"
"I would have been the Warlord everyone thinks I am, tossed her aside like a sack of potatoes in a white wedding dress, and asked for the hand of a peculiar redheaded woman I met on the road."
Sally smiled. "And if she said no?" "Well," Mickel said, kissing her hand. "I may not be the Warlord of the Savage Belly Ache, but I am exceptionally brave. I would fight for her. #Quote by Sharon Shinn
Husband quotes by Tom Stoppard
#156. An artist is the magician put among men to gratify
capriciously
their urge for immortality. The temples are built and brought down around him, continuously and contiguously, from Troy to the fields of Flanders. If there is any meaning in any of it, it is in what survives as art, yes even in the celebration of tyrants, yes even in the celebration of nonentities. What now of the Trojan War if it had been passed over by the artist's touch? Dust. A forgotten expedition prompted by Greek merchants looking for new markets. A minor redistribution of broken pots. But it is we who stand enriched, by a tale of heroes, of a golden apple, a wooden horse, a face that launched a thousand ships
and above all, of Ulysses, the wanderer, the most human, the most complete of all heroes
husband, father, son, lover, farmer, soldier, pacifist, politician, inventor and adventurer ... #Quote by Tom Stoppard
Husband quotes by Lucretia Mott
#157. The legal theory is, that marriage makes the husband and wife one person, and that person is the husband. #Quote by Lucretia Mott

Husband quotes by Melanie Shankle
#160. And it's a reminder that Mr. Right isn't out there. There's just Mr. Right-for-You. He may look totally different from what's right for your best friend. Your marriage is a unique being with as much of its own DNA as you and your husband bring to the table. I remember early on in our marriage, Perry and I were friends with a couple who did everything together, even grocery shopping. I thought something was wrong with us because we had so many separate interests. But that's just who we are. It's not wrong; it's different. #Quote by Melanie Shankle
Husband quotes by Ice Cube
#161. I have a really beautiful life right now, so there is no reason to be hostile. I'm a husband, a father and a man who tries to do the right thing in life and in my work. #Quote by Ice Cube
Husband quotes by Kathryn Smith
#162. My requirements in a husband are simple," she informed him smoothly. "All I want is a man who will hold me above everything else, including his horse, his fortune, and his pride."
Hearing that simple yet seemingly impossible declaration was like a blow to Grey's solar plexus. She was going to be so disappointed, the poor thing. How perverted was it of him to secretly rejoice over her wants? She might find a man who could love her more than his horse, perhaps even more than his fortune, but never would she find a man willing to sacrifice his pride-not without that same man coming to hate her for it eventually.
"More than his horse?" he joked. "My dear girl, you ask too much. #Quote by Kathryn Smith

Husband quotes by Kate Chopin
#164. Mr. Pontellier had been a rather courteous husband so long as he met a certain tacit submissiveness in his wife. But her new and unexpected line of conduct completely bewildered him. It shocked him. Then her absolute disregard for her duties as a wife angered him. When Mr. Pontellier became rude, Edna grew insolent. She had resolved never to take another step backward. #Quote by Kate Chopin
Husband quotes by Busy Philipps
#165. Jason [Nash] is just someone that I've known socially and through his stand-up, seeing him do different comedy shows, and I just really like him. I think he's a funny guy and he has a unique perspective on being a dad and a husband. #Quote by Busy Philipps
Husband quotes by Iris Apfel
#166. People say, 'You have inspired me, you've given me courage ... ' They've gone so far as to say, 'You've changed my life!' And I would come back and say to my husband, 'I can't understand it - what kind of poor little life did she have if I had to come and change it?' #Quote by Iris Apfel
Husband quotes by J.C. Daniels

Husband quotes by Tyler Perry
#168. I want an open dialogue. I want husbands and wives and people in relationships to walk out of the theater thinking, "Could this happen to me? I know I'm being tempted." #Quote by Tyler Perry
Husband quotes by Nora Ephron
#169. People always say that once it goes away, you forget the pain. It's a cliché of childbirth: you forget the pain. I don't happen to agree. I remember the pain. What you really forget is love. Divorce seems as if it will last forever, and then suddenly, one day, your children grow up, move out, and make lives for themselves, and except for an occasional flare, you have no contact at all with your ex-husband. The divorce has lasted way longer than the marriage, but finally it's over. #Quote by Nora Ephron
Husband quotes by Honore De Balzac
#170. The pleasures of love proceed successively from a distich to a quatrain, from a quatrain to a sonnet, from a sonnet to a ballad, from a ballad to an ode, from an ode to a cantata, and from a cantata to a dithyramb. A husband who begins with the dithyramb is a fool. #Quote by Honore De Balzac

#172. I am saving my love in four parts. One part I will give to my family, because they give life to me. One part I will give to my future husband, because he will be the one who I will accompany with me for the rest of the life. The third part I will give to my husband's family, because if it was not for his mother and father I would not have him. The fourth part I give to myself, because if a woman does not love herself, how she could love another? #Quote by Paul Brinkley-Rogers
Husband quotes by Cate Blanchett
#173. My husband wasn't put off by it - he thought it was hilarious to see me dressed as Dylan! He didn't particularly want to kiss me with stubble all over my face - it felt a bit odd! But I think he's used to it [the make-up process]. #Quote by Cate Blanchett
Husband quotes by Stephanie McMahon
#174. Whether you're a mother or father, or a husband or a son, or a niece or a nephew or uncle, breast cancer doesn't discriminate. #Quote by Stephanie McMahon
Husband quotes by Robyn Carr
#175. My husband was an Air Force pilot man years ago and recently an Air Force wife thanked me for my service! I laughed and said, 'No, I wasn't in the Air Force, my husband was!' And she smiled and said, 'If he served, you served. And thank you.' #Quote by Robyn Carr
Husband quotes by David Bellavia
#176. Maybe it's time to stop being a soldier and go home to be a father. And a husband for Deanna. I'm not sure how. #Quote by David Bellavia
Husband quotes by Jean Sasson
#177. My voice thick with frustration, I declared that if men and women could only meet each other under normal circumstances, that delusions of instant love would be more infrequent. While I do believe that great attractions lead to genuine love, such as it had with my sister, Sara, and her husband, Assad, such a happy outcome is rare. When men and women rarely have the opportunity to enjoy the other's company in ordinary social occasions, spontaneous emotions are quick to rise to the surface, often ending in terrible personal tragedies. #Quote by Jean Sasson
Husband quotes by Anita Shreve
#178. And yet. And yet. If asked - if pressed - Honora would have to say she is strangely content. It's an odd feeling that she cannot describe to anyone - not to her mother and certainly not to Sexton, whose unhappiness seems to have no bounds, whose unhappiness is defined now by what he does not have, which is almost everything. He will always, in his mind, be the salesman who no longer has anything to sell. A man who longs for the open road but who cannot ever take it. Whereas Honora, oddly, now has more purpose than she ever did before. She is a dutiful wife who tends to her husband in spite of his weaknesses. She is a woman with ingenuity. She is a woman without illusions. She is a woman who, above all, is too busy trying to make a go of it to fret about her marriage. #Quote by Anita Shreve
Husband quotes by Patricia Wentworth
#179. Husbands and wives quarrel a lot more than anyone thinks, and it's oftener about little things than big ones ... #Quote by Patricia Wentworth
Husband quotes by Marilyn Pappano
#180. I'm married, honey. My social life consists of work, church, taxiing the kids around and trying to schedule sex with my husband at least once a month. #Quote by Marilyn Pappano
Husband quotes by Judy Collins
#181. The powerful men in my life have always believed in me: my husband, my son. #Quote by Judy Collins
Husband quotes by Mariama Ba
#182. Try explaining to them that a working woman is no less responsible for her home ... There are the children to be washed, the husband to be looked after. The working woman has a dual task, of which both halves, equally arduous, must be reconciled. How does one go about this? Therein lies the skill that makes all the difference to a home. #Quote by Mariama Ba
Husband quotes by Sarah Waters
#183. You're not sure? Look at your own fingers. Are you not sure, if they are yours? Look at any part of you - it might be me that you are looking at! We are the same, you and I. We have been cut, two halves, from the same piece of shinning matter. Oh, I could say, I love you - that is a simple thing to say, the sort of thing your sister might say to her husband. I could say that in a prison letter, four times a year. but my spirit does not love yours - it is entwined with it. Our flesh does not love: our flesh is the same, and longs to leap to itself. It must do that or wither! You are like me. #Quote by Sarah Waters
Husband quotes by Jacqueline Lapidus
#184. Living in Greece I learned
why so many women wore black:
a year for parents, for a husband
forever, telling the neighbors take
care of me, I am weak with grief,
I have turned to ash inside. #Quote by Jacqueline Lapidus
Husband quotes by Tamera Mowry
#185. I'd rather marry my husband in the stage where I know what I'm getting into and what it's going to be like for our life together. #Quote by Tamera Mowry
Husband quotes by M.C. Beaton
#186. Christmas had done its usual merry work of setting husband against wife, relative against relative, and spreading bad will among men in general. People looked overfed and hung over and desperately worried about how much they had already spent. #Quote by M.C. Beaton
Husband quotes by Lynsey Addario
#187. I had imposed unspeakable worry on my husband, Paul de Bendern, on more occasions than I could count. #Quote by Lynsey Addario
Husband quotes by Cambria Hebert
#188. That's right. Your husband. I belong to you, Rim. Always. I don't want anyone but you. I haven't since the day you spilled pencils everywhere, in your lesbian sweater, and gave me a list of rules. #Quote by Cambria Hebert
Husband quotes by Radhika Vaz
#189. We have been made to believe that a baby is basically a magical agent of change and that having one will, in one fell swoop, make your husband love you more, make your life more meaningful and, above all else, is the best thing you will ever do as a woman. I didn't care about any of it #Quote by Radhika Vaz
Husband quotes by Phyllis Chesler
#190. Women must begin to "save" themselves and their daughters before they "save" their husbands and their sons; before they "save" the whole world. #Quote by Phyllis Chesler
Husband quotes by Kiera Cass
#191. I couldn't help but
notice it was always this way. At state events or important dinners, Mom was beside Dad or situated
right behind him. But when they were just husband and wife - not king and queen - he followed her
everywhere. #Quote by Kiera Cass
Husband quotes by Michelle Obama
#192. My happiness isn't connected to my husband's or my boss's or my children's behavior. You have control over your own actions, your own well-being. #Quote by Michelle Obama
Husband quotes by Stormie O'martian
#193. You may be asking yourself at this very moment, Why isn't Stormie's husband writing this book? The answer is simple. He's just like you. He is a busy man, with places to go, people to see, work to do, a family to support, food to eat, a life to live, golf to play, ball games to watch, channels to flip, and a chronic lack of patience when it comes to writing. It's not that he doesn't pray. #Quote by Stormie O'martian
Husband quotes by Tiffany Langford
#194. You are called to intercede for your future husband. Likewise, he is called to intercede on your behalf. Prayer connects you both in love. You are speaking your marriage into existence. Proverbs 18:21 tells us that, "death and life lie in the power of the tongue." That isn't something to take lightly. Don't #Quote by Tiffany Langford
Husband quotes by Jen Hatmaker
#195. Thank you, 4:00 p.m., for being the time of day that thoroughly confuses me: post-homework and pre-dinner. I am already exhausted and fairly irritable. The children are losing their ever-loving minds, and husband is still tucked away in his sane office with all mental faculties intact and won't answer my SOS texts to hurry and come home or their blood is on your hands. Do I make a coffee? Or pour a glass of wine? Yours, Witching-Hour Survivor. #Quote by Jen Hatmaker
Husband quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#196. Husband and wives are never completely honest with each other - no marriage could survive it. #Quote by Lisa Kleypas
Husband quotes by William Makepeace Thackeray
#197. As his hero and heroine pass the matrimonial barrier, the novelist generally drops the curtain, as if the drama were over then: the doubts and struggles of life ended: as if, once landed in the marriage country, all were green and pleasant there: and wife and husband had nothing to do but to link each other's arms together, and wander gently downwards towards old age in happy and perfect fruition. But our little Amelia was just on the bank of her new country, and was already looking anxiously back towards the sad friendly figures waving farewell to her across the stream, from the other distant shore. #Quote by William Makepeace Thackeray
Husband quotes by John Steinbeck
#198. Behind him hobbled Granma, who had survived only because she was as mean as her husband. She had held her own with a shrill ferocious religiosity that was as lecherous and as savage as anything Grampa could offer. . . As she walked she hiked her Mother Hubbard up to her knees, and she bleated her shrill terrible war cry: "Pu-raise Gawd fur vittory. #Quote by John Steinbeck
Husband quotes by Tina Fey
#199. One Monday, Donna came in and said that her husband had had a heart attack over the weekend. And, by the way, she didn't open with this. She slipped it in about twenty minutes into her shift. #Quote by Tina Fey
Husband quotes by Christina Aguilera
#200. When I first met my husband, I needed that helping hand to take the reins and look after me. #Quote by Christina Aguilera
