Marriage Toasts

Here's to matrimony, the high sea for which no compass has yet been invented

To marriage-the happy estate which, as Sydney Smith observed, "resembles a pairs of shears; so joined that they cannot be separated; often moving in opposite directions, yet always punishing anyone who comes between them."

May all single men get married, and all married men be happy.

To the wonderful institution called marriage. It's one of the few relationships where, as Elbert Hubbard said, "Man's boldness and woman's caution make an excellent business arrangement."

To marriage-the last decision a man is allowed to make.

To a happy marriage, or in the words of Andre Maurois, "To a long conversation that always seems too short."

May you have many children; and may they grow as mature in taste, and as healthy in color, and as sought after as the contents of this glass.

May your love be as endless as your wedding rings.

Parents' toast: "It is written: When children find true love, parents find true joy." Here's to your joy and ours, from this day forward.

Needles and pins, needles and pins
When a man marries his troubles begin.
