Famous Christian Quotes About Marriage, Weddings

What to Look for in a Wife

If you are a man of holiness, you must look more for a portion of grace in a wife than for a portion of gold with a wife. You must look more after righteousness than riches, more after piety than money, more after what inheritance she has in heaven than what possessions she has on earth, more at what interest she has in Christ than at what interest she has in creatures, more at her being new-born than at her being high-born, more at her being good than at all her worldly goods.

Thomas Brooks

Clement on the Role of Wives

With perfect propriety Scripture has said that woman is given by God as “a help” to man. It is evident then, in my opinion, that she will charge herself with remedying, by good sense and persuasion, each of the annoyances that originate with her husband in domestic economy. And if he does not yield, then she will endeavor, as far as possible for human nature, to lead a sinless life.

Clement of Alexandria

Obey the Husband as a Husband

When Paul commands wives to obey their husbands, they are required to obey them as husbands, not as masters, nor as kings.
