Marriage is hard work. It requires a lot of love, patience—and a wicked sense of humour. So it only makes sense that we find ourselves turning to some of our favourite celebrities for sweet and silly quips about married life.
1. Paul Newman: "Husbands and wives should have separate interests, cultivate different sets of friends and not impose on the other...You can't spend a lifetime breathing down each other's necks."
2. Elizabeth Taylor: "I am a very committed wife. And I should be committed, too—for being married so many times."
3. Katharine Hepburn: "I often wonder whether men and women really suit each other. Perhaps they should live next door and just visit now and then."
4. Albert Einstein: "Men marry women with the hope they will never change. Women marry men with the hope they will change. Invariably, they are both disappointed."
5. Marilyn Monroe: "Experts on romance say for a happy marriage there has to be more than a passionate love. For a lasting union, they insist, there must be a genuine liking for each other. Which, in my book, is a good definition for friendship."
6. Joan Rivers: "When you first get married, they open the car door for you. Eighteen years now...once he opened the car door for me in the last four years—we were on the freeway at the time."
7. Zsa Zsa Gabor: "You never really know a man until you divorce him."
8. David Bowie: "You would think that a rock star being married to a supermodel would be one of the greatest things in the world. It is."
9. Cher: "A girl can wait for the right man to come along but in the meantime that doesn't mean she can't have a wonderful time with all the wrong ones."
10. George Carlin: "'I am' is supposedly the shortest sentence in the English language. Could it be that 'I do' is the longest sentence?"
