I came back to my original wife. I came back to her after I made a few boo-boos in my life. Coming back to her was good for me, good for her and good for the children.
Most of us spend our lives convinced that there’s something missing: “If only I had a bigger barbecue
, more money
, a bigger car, a different wife, a different…. If only I could upgrade
somehow, then I would be okay.”
Every night before bed, I rub
my wife’s feet
. She says they’re the best foot
rubs on Earth.
Kids and family life
are only as good as your wife, and she’s amazing.
I am very blessed. The Valley
is full of people, but they do not annoy
me. I revolve in pathless places and in higher rocks
than the world and his ribbony wife can reach.
It’s with a heavy heart
that I have decided that I can’t relocate. I have two babies under 4. Being a mother and wife comes first, and I just cannot uproot my children and separate the family by moving away
. I will miss this job desperately
and wish everyone the absolute best.
Only two things are necessary to keep one’s wife happy. One is to let her think she is having her own way, and the other is to let her have it.
I used to turn to nature
and animals a lot. And fishing. I spend time still with my Bible
and the gospel music
, and I still have to feed
the animals! But my wife and daughter have brought me a world of perspective
when I’m feeling just a little “extra
There was a law in Connecticut
– I believe it is still formally unrepealed – making it illegal
for a man to kiss his wife on Sunday.
I can see clothes of silk, if materials
that do not hide
the body, nor even one’s decency
, can be called clothes. … Wretched flocks
of maids labor so that the adulteress may be visible through her thin dress, so that her husband has no more acquaintance than any outsider
with his wife’s body.
Since I am Rajini’s daughter and Dhanush’s wife, people may think ‘why she is even bothered
to work hard
?’ But I want to stand out, make a name for myself.
My wife, who does not like journalizing, said it was leaving myself embowelled to posterity–a good strong figure
. But I think itis rather leaving myself embalmed. It is certainly preserving
I am an obsessive garage cleaner
– my wife and the neighbors make fun of me. I remember that my father was the same way, and now when I’m out there unearthing things in the garage, I realize I am becoming my dad
God bids you not to commit lechery
, that is, not to have sex with any woman except your wife. You ask of her that she should not have sex with anyone except you — yet you are not willing
the same restraint
I care about my legacy
that I’m leaving, not only for my fans
, but for my wife and my children and my grandchildren. I want them to look back and say, ‘He did it right and he stood up
for what is right.’
It is ironic
that it doesn’t matter how successful I am in any other capacity
. Ultimately, my parents marker is do you have a wife? And do you have children?
That’s how it all started, when I met my wife. My music career
, even though I started when I was 16, it never really started till I was like 30, when I started singing
and writing my own songs
, and that’s when it really took off. But prior
to that, I was just doing a bunch
I think it is typical
for many men to have problems when their wives make more money then they do, or when their wives are higher on the corporate ladder
than they find themselves. I think that often is
When my wife gets mad at me, I remind myself that she is much smarter
than I am and so I probably deserve
it, even if I don’t really understand it!
I’m married. I have three children. I have a mortgage
to pay. The plumbing breaks
and the yard needs trimming
. However, what my wife and children need most from me is my passion
You make real progress
when somebody is honest enough to say something that’s really uncomfortable
. Of course when you’re a candidate’s wife and when you’re first lady
and the first African
-American first lady to boot
, that is very, very hard to do.
My wife doesn’t like Football but she watches it just for Messi
My wife was the first romantic partner who understood both American and native parts of me – not so much the positive stuff, but the damage
From the poetry of Lord Byron
they drew a system of ethics compounded of misanthropy
and voluptuousness,-a system in which the two great commandments
were to hate your neighbour
and to love your neighbour’s wife.
A political man is disgusting, but a political wife, horrible.
These days we donвЂ™t have to fit into something other people think we are. WeвЂ™ve leveled the playing field
, life is inclusive
. IвЂ™m a mom, sex detective
, wife, fearless
, gentle вЂ” we can now, with grace
, be all of what we are.
Sex is still the most interesting
subject under the sun
. People will say my wife is too tired or my husband is too tired, and I listen and I say ‘go for help.’
A live show is one of the last holdouts of a thing that makes you feel a part of a community, where you’ll go and maybe meet your future
wife or boyfriend, or you’re taking your sister to her first show. These are the things that you remember later in your life.
People are led to reason thus
: a woman who is a wife is one who has made a permanent
sex bargain for her maintenance
; the woman who is not married must therefore
make a temporary bargain of the same kind.
A wife is property that one acquires by contract
, she is transferable, because possession of her requires title; in fact, woman is, so to speak, only man’s appendage; consequently
, slice, cut, clip
her, you have all rights to her.
Beauty is a dangerous property, tending
to corrupt the mind of the wife, though it soon loses its influence over the husband. A figure agreeable and engaging, which inspires affection, without the ebriety of love, is a much safer
I’m a family man
. I have a daughter and a wife, and I spend more time on the road with my wrestling family than I do with my actual household and my immediate family
In 1940 I was just turning 5 years old and being taken to the movies. For those of us who were not old enough
to understand the horror
of war it was a very romantic era
because these guys were kissing
their wives and girlfriends goodbye and going off to fight and become heroes
The Bible may be more than an ordinary human book but it’s not less, and the same principles therefore apply
it as in interpreting what my wife wants me to do. Only the stakes
are even higher!
I was on the board of Andre Agassi’s foundation
, and seeing the way it operated blew
my mind. In 2002, I told my wife, I want to start a foundation to give back, I want it to be for kids in hard circumstances
, and I want it to be culinary-driven, because that’s who I am.
When husbands and fathers leave, their wives and daughters tend
themselves less as a result
I’ve learned in most areas
of my life, to bounce
off other people. Co-workers, my agent, my wife, a sponsor
, etc. A majority
of the time, that keeps me on the right side of things.
A person can attack
that bottle of vodka and drink it like it’s a bottle of cold water
. Two of my wife’s girlfriends died from drinking. They weren’t big pill-takers; they were drinkers
. So it can’t be so simple as to slide
away, like Marilyn Monroe
… happy husbands and wives can hear each other say the same thing over and over again without being tired.
People shop for a bathing suit with more care than they do a husband or wife. The rules are the same. Look for something you’ll feel comfortable wearing. Allow for room to grow.
I take pride
in my life-my wife, my family. I try my best not to have football define
the person that I am.
My wife, my daughters, even my grandchildren are funny. You’ve got to keep a sense of humor because anger destroys you.
I haven’t got a car or a house. I’ve got a wife, but I didn’t pay for her! I spend all my money on my glorious
wife. She’s here with a knife at my throat!
Wife: one who is sorry she did it, but would undoubtedly
do it again.
‘Tis not to make me jealous
To say my wife is fair, feeds well, loves company,
Is free of speech, sings
, plays, and dances
is, these are more virtuous
Christmas, my child, is love in action.” ~ Dale Evans (1912-2001), American film actress, singer and songwriter. Wife of Roy Rogers
My wife, if she wants it, she will just go out and buy it.
I will admit
the best sex I’ve ever had has been with my wife.
When I was 25, I believed I could change the world
. At 41, I have come to the realization that I cannot change my wife, my church, or my kids, to say nothing of the world. Try as I might, I have not been able to manufacture outcomes
the way I thought I could, either in my own life
or other people’s.
You’ll often find that it’s not mom or dad, husband or wife, or the kids that’s stopping
you. It’s you. Get out of your own way.
You young men need to know that you can hardly achieve
your highest potential without the influence of a good women, particularly you mother, and in a few years, a good wife.
When I’m at home, I don’t discuss
business. I don’t talk business. I don’t answer the phone
. It’s just me, my wife, my children, my dogs. That’s my world.
My wife Martha used to call me
Face because of my facial
contortions when I play Lucille. I squeeze
my eyes and open my mouth, raise my eyebrows
, cock my head and God knows what else. I look like I’m in torture
, when in truth, I’m in ecstasy
. I don’t do it for show. Every fiber
of my being is tingling.
Estimated from a wife’s experience, the average man
spends fully one-quarter of his life in looking for his shoes.
LetвЂ™s just say itвЂ™s not a stereotype
that Black women are
less submissive and harder to deal with. Being around them Black women made me really miss my wife.
So, who in the media
is without sin among us? I am in the media and I am a major league sinner
. I don’t know anyone except my wife who isn’t a big time
Being a father has fulfilled
me in parts of my life that sustain
me. It gives me a comfort and patience. All actors
have this hole inside that they’re trying to fill by performing
. I’m anxious
to keep creating
, but I’m not so desperate
any more because I have the love and support of my kids and wife.
I absolutely love being back in Nebraska
and I love that my wife is able to experience a lot of the great things
that made me love this place years ago. The lifestyle
, the people.
A good wife always forgives her husband when she’s wrong.
This is a way to kill a wife with kindness
He gambled all his life, he’s got 27 children, yet he’s never had a wife.
My first wife is always the stage.
me as many men fear women: because their mistresses (or their wives) understand them. They are scarcely
adult, some men
: they wish women to understand them, and to that end they tell them all their secrets
; and then, when they are properly
understood, they hate their women for understanding them.
I go to the British
Comedy Awards and, you know, quite a few people
were making jokes
at my expense
. It just made me feel awful
, because I am there with my wife and she has gone out and bought a dress. And it is my big night and I won, and yet the overriding experience was that of nastiness
If you’re concentrating
, you can’t be concentrating on money and cars and houses and wives and boyfriends. And when you come back to deal with them, you have a better view of their reliative importance
. Climbing puts things in perspective again.
When I was 66, my wife June
died of cancer. Two years later–a year and a half ago–I married Kristen McMain, the eternal companion who now stands
at my side.
I’m at a loss because I am in love with a man who is standing before me with no memories of me at all. (Time Traveler
I have this mistress: show business. I get a lot of love and adulation from outside, and [my wife] lets me have that, while she does all the real-life stuff that counts В— making sure the kids are going to school and all that. I married a saint В— well, a saint who curses
I have a wife and two daughters; people who depend on me. Everything is more important than it was when I was 20. But now I’m like, “Eh, I made it
The comfortable estate of widowhood
is the only hope that keeps up a wife’s spirits
What would possess a family where’s there’s a husband and wife to want 12 kids or 18 kids? That’s just what they feel is meaningful to them. Their family. Expanding
I had been in a film, playing a young British aristocrat
. My wife told me that she was invited to a dinner and she invited me to dinner and the hostess

When a man retires, his wife gets twice the husband but only half the income.
Hee that hath a wife and children wants not businesse.
вЂ¦ ever since it first came onвЂ¦ I come here a lot, we have a lot of friends here, my wife used to work with a lot of Brits

Qu’ils mangent de la brioche. Let them eat cake. On being told that her people had no bread. Attributed

the remark to the wife of Louis
Here among my books, my wife, my friends and my loves, I have plenty of reasons to keep living.
together to wear silly hats
, eat dainty
food, and forget how unresponsive
their husbands are. Men gather to talk sports, eat heavy food, and forget how demanding
their wives are. Only where children gather is there any real chance of fun.
It drives me nuts
how I rely on my wife for everything. I can’t imagine
a day without her!
I can understand that the whole world is interested in my wife Madonna. That’s even why I married her.
I know I can still play, but it’s like I told my wife, I’m just tired mentally. I’m just tired.
I know this is painful
for the ladies
to hear, but if you get married, you have accepted
of a man, your husband. Christ is the head of the household and the husband is the head of the wife, and that’s the way it is, period
But it will be said that the husband provides for the wife, or in other words
, he feeds, clothes and shelters
her! I wish I had the power to make every one before me fully realize the degradation contained
in that idea.
Some perfect wife
I am. I’ve been married four times, divorced four times, have no children, and can’t boil
I played, every play, I was making contact, not like that Deion Sanders. He couldn’t tackle my wife. He’s back there dancing
out there instead of hitting.
A lot of people look for you to change. Everything has stayed the same. Financially, this is God’s money, and my wife and I are just stewards
And I had to take care
of a little dog too named
Suzy. It was the promoter
‘s wife’s – Judy
Lynn’s – it was her dog. And one of my duties
going on the tour was to take care of it.
I always think of the future. I think that’s how I can work happily now. And I always think ‘where would I be living if I married a Korean
person?’ I work hard now for my future, my future wife and family.
My wife lost all her credit cards
, but I’m not going to report it. Whoever found them spends less than she does!
It’s one thing to reject
the idea that it’s a man’s job to bring home all the bacon; it’s another the 500th time your wife reaches for the check at dinner.
Show me a wife who doesn’t offer
advice and I’ll show you one who doesn’t care very much.
I love my wife. We FaceTime and we talk on the phone and she travels
to come see me when she can. But she works as well. But we see each other a lot more than people would think, though, because we make it happen
and we love each other so much.
I’m Catholic, and my wife is Catholic. We’re very religious. We go to church. We pray every night
. We pray at dinner. To me, Catholics regard
themselves as very Christian
. Some Christians
view Catholics as not necessarily Christian.
My wife always asks me why I don’t make the bed. And I respond
with the same reason why
I don’t tie my shoes after I take them off.
I love producing
my kids and my wife’s TV show. I love doing that. I think that’s my most natural space
in the business. I would say the most natural space for me is producing or editing
. That’s just where I thrive
The body is like the wife to the spirit. The two must cohabit to create new forms
, but their pleasures rarely
Marriage is all about knowing the ins and outs and the intimate details
, and your wife is supposed to be the person you know best. But my brother and I think alike
, know everything about one another, and when we get together
, we block everything else
out. Nothing exists
in our world
except for us.
I met my darling
wife Wilnelia in 1980 when we were on the judging panel
for the Miss World contest
at the Royal Albert
Hall. With two ex-wives and five daughters, I thought I wouldn’t be involved with anyone for a long time
– if ever. Winnie was so gorgeous
, my jaw dropped – and it’s a big jaw to drop.
We all know people who have worse fates. What do I have to complain about for Christ’s sake? I have a beautiful wife and kids, and all this music, kids are paying my bills.
During the war, there were people wishing
me death, wishing my son
death, wishing my wife death in very graphic
ways. In the past, I would go overseas
and I would say, “Israel
is like my family: we disagree
, but we’re all brothers.” I can’t say that anymore
, because life proves
My mother still calls me Jim
and that is about it. Everyone else calls me Lee. My wife calls me whatever.
Wives should be kissed – not heard.
I knew A.J. Muste very well. I tried for a while to be like he was, and that is a total pacifist
. But then Margot [my wife] hit
me hard in the stomach
one day to prove
to me that I wasn’t as perfect a pacifist as I thought I was.
I think middle
America has changed very, very much. I think people are way more open-minded
. I think – I think it’s because the Internet
. I think they’re exposed
to so much. All the men talked
about how much they love their wife, which I don’t hear all the time in art communities
In order for romance to deepen
, you must touch the heart and mind
of your wife before you touch her body.
My writing is definitely
influenced by and speaks to African-Americans because that is who I am. I’m black. I’m a black woman. I’m a black mother, wife, churchgoer, etc. I am the legacy of slavery
They are not said to be husband and wife, who merely sit together. Rather they alone are called husband and wife, who have one soul in two bodies
A wife is to submit graciously to the servant
leadership of her husband even as the church willingly
submits to the headship of Christ.
I feel like now I have an amazing wife, a super smart
child and the opportunity to create in two major fields. Before I had those outlets
, my ego was all I had.
I used to bicycle
to work across the George Washington Bridge, but my wife told me it wasn’t professional.
I have sacrificed
for the Republic
allВ that man holds dear – my wife, my children, my liberty, my life.
That question in marriage is mutual submission
, really – the next verse goes on
: “husbands love your wife as Christ loves the Church.”
of a wife at 40 is that a man should be able to change her, like a bank
note, for two 20s.
It’s hard to give a career like this up, when I tell my wife I’m going to the office, and it’s the beach.
You can be very independent, but admit to wanting somebody close to you and that’s what me and my wife have. We don’t need each other but we want to be with each other and I think it’s important to educate
the kids with that.
Fifty percent of all meaningful education takes place in the home. What do you share with your child? You share your interests. I was a book person. I read with my son. My wife is an artist. She dragged his little butt
around to museums
. He’s an illustrator
of children’s books
Just because your wife schmoozes with somebody too much, you can’t go throwing
the kids out with the bath water! And that’s the way the law’s tied
up right now
I will never shave
off my beard and moustache
. I did once, for charity
, but my wife said, ‘Good grief
, how awful, you look like an American car with all the chrome
I have a beautiful wife and two beautiful children, and every day I am paid to do what I love.
Give love to your children, to a wife or husband, to a next-door neighbour.
I’m not interested
in being a wife. I’m interested in being an empress.
When I read the pilot for Married with Children, it just reminded
me of my Uncle Joe… just a self-deprecating
kind of guy. Hed come home from work, and the wife would maybe say I ran over the dog this morning in the driveway
. And he would say Fine, whats for dinner?
It is easier for a woman to be a good wife than a good mother. A widow has two duties with contrary obligations: she is a mother and she must exercise paternal
authority. Few woman are strong enough
to understand and to play this role.
I helped put in a rink in Cadillac, Michigan
, when my wife was very healthy
. She helped them put it in and the rink is going full-bore the last time I was there.
The idea is to encourage
men to go with their wives and screen
. So, if the wife is going to go and do her screening, then the man can go and do his baseline screening, too. Men need to be aware of the health
of their bodies, as well – prostate
cancer and breast cancer
are almost on the same level
I’m from Canada
and my wife is from St. Albans, so I feel a great kinship
with the Brits.
I’ll do anything for my wife, it’s turning out.
The prince exults whomever he selects as his consort, but the queen
, rather than elevating
the subject of her choice, humiliates him as a man. By all that is right, a man is not intended
to be the husband of his wife, but a woman is to be her husband’s wife.
Don’t ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself, ‘What makes me come alive
?’ Because what the world – a wife, a child – needs is men who have come alive.
I am so glad
my wife tolerates me. And we have three wonderful sons.
is, after all, the land where children are beaten
, wives and babies bashed, football hooligans crunch
, and Miss Whip and Miss Lash ply their trade

It’s not a secret family like I have a beautiful, gorgeous wife in Tokyo
; I have another mom and dad. I’m the kid and I have another mom and dad in Atwater Village, Los Angeles.
in Canada say they have discovered the part of the brain that is used to make decisions, and this is weird: If you’re married, it’s actually located in your wife’s brain.
Even before marriage
I used cook delicious dishes for my wife and mother-in-law on Jamai Sasthi.
People are worried
that their inner voice
will tell them to leave their husbands or wives – or their jobs. Well, if that’s really what your inner guidance
is saying, then that is for your highest good and for your spouse’s or partner’s. There is a plan for everyone.
Happy is that family where both the husband and wife are mutual members
of Christ’s body
In Russia a man is called reactionary
if he objects to having his property stolen
and his wife and children murdered.
According to the Bible, the marriage act is more than a physical act. It is an act of sharing. It is an act of communion
. It is an act of total self-giving wherein the husband gives himself completely to the wife, and the wife gives herself to the husband in such a way
that the two actually become one flesh.
My wife has to be the worst cook. In my house, we pray after we eat.
My ex-wife, she really didn’t like the material that I did. And that’s something I regret, that I wasn’t more careful about making sure that she was O.K. with it. I just sort of didn’t ask. So that’s how that goes.
I tell ya, my wife, we get along good cause
we have our own arrangement
. I mean, one night a week I go out with the boys and one night a week, she goes out with the boys.
My ex-wife was a philosophy major at NYU. Yeah, she and I used to have deep philosophical discussions
where she would prove that I didn’t exist.
It’s still too early to say how my wife will influence my life. But I do already know that it’s sometimes hard work
living with her.
I’m getting bigger roles, and I’m on location
more, and I have a wife and family. I’d rather work less, and I’ve started to implement
that. It was either that or my wife would break my heart.
My wife is my in-home editor
everything I write.
A few months ago, a friend emailed to simply ask, ‘Do you get a piece of this?’ The message included
to a site
selling T-shirts emblazoned with ‘Directed
B. Weide.’ My wife soon ordered two.
Sunday-the doctor’s paradise! Doctors at country clubs
at the seaside, doctors with mistresses, doctors with wives, doctors in church, doctors in yachts, doctors everywhere resolutely being people, not doctors.
I would be looking up from a pool of blood
and hearing my wife ask ‘How do I reload this thing’.
We have now clearly shown
that God the Father had a plurality of wives, one or more being in eternity
, by whom He begat our spirits as well as the Spirit of Jesus His first Born.
Are we bereft
because we are mothers, wives and daughters of a mighty
people? Have women no country–no interests staked in public weal–no liabilities in common peril–no partnership
in a nation
‘s guilt and shame?
Why don’t you go home to your wife? Better yet, I’ll go home to
your wife, and outside of the improvement
, she won’t notice any
I am afraid that I am actually naturally good with money. My wife thinks it is because I am a Jew, which is both slightly anti-Semitic and also correct
, all my “goysha” – gentile
– friends haven’t got a clue
Work takes me away from my wife, Sue, and my life in Santa Barbara
Much contention and strife will arise
in that house where the wife shall get up dissatisfied
with her husband.
He tells old wives’ tales much to the point.
My wife says 90% of sex occurs
between the ears. But I need a girl who can blow
more just my mind.
The son has always felt like he was a footnote in one of the stories the father tells. The father is an amazing storyteller
and one of the tales that he tells is how he met his wife.
My wife and daughter have accused
me of being too silent
at breakfast but I don’t want to talk when I don’t have much to say.
What is instinct? It is the natural tendency
in one when filled with dismay
to turn to his wife.
[My mother is] a half-Chinese, half-Jamaican woman, who grew up the ninth
of nine kids, getting a law degree from Harvard. Academically
brilliant, but also incredibly strong-willed
. My mother was like that, my sister is, and my wife is too.
I am not in the habit of supporting people who attack my wife and attack my father.
Well the beauty of ‘Iyanla: Fix My Life’ is that men are in every show. To our surprise
, some of the deepest healing
demonstrations have been with the men – the sons, the fathers, the husbands – because they agree to participate
with the wife or the daughter or whatever it is we are looking at, and it is there.
I know for my wife and I, we always loved the idea of being young parents
. It is an incredibly inspiring
and challenging job being a parent
, and as it turns out, being young really helps you keep up.
Osama bin Laden… lived in one house for, like, six years with three wives. And earlier
today, they ruled
his death was a suicide.
I will never get married to the head of General Motors
. I will never be the wife of a superstar
. For those women, their lives are somebody else’s. I will never be a Mrs. Blabidyblah!
Prince William’s pregnant wife
Middleton, is past her due
date. Doctors may have to induce
labor. To speed
up the birth, doctors have been telling the baby, ‘Come on out. You will never have to work a day in your life.’
There’s nothing like a good cheating
song to make me want to run home to be with my wife.
I remember my wife in white.’ It just made people weep
to hear it…Everybody just thought it was the saddest sentence
that was ever written. And it didn’t matter if I never wrote another word. This one sentence
had put an end to the need for any future sentences
. I had said it all.
I have members of my immediate family, and my wife’s immediate family, who voted for Donald Trump, and now there’s this gulf
that I have no interest in bridging however much I love those people. It’s almost like the Civil
I don’t want ever to appear in a film that would embarrass a viewer
. A man can take his wife, mother, and his daughter to one of my movies and never be ashamed
I have always considered
my career self and my personal self as two different and separate people. There’s a Jayne Mansfield at home, a wife and devoted
mother, and there’s Jayne the sex symbol
, which is my career. I have always kept them completely apart and separate.
I certainly had my years as an out of work actor but I was married with a baby. My wife was supporting us.
I kept looking [at Katie
] and thinking, ‘This woman’s amazing.’ I’m happy that I’m with her. She’s amazing, and I’d think the same of her even if she wasn’t with me – she’s just amazing.
My wife tells me I need to learn to be more patient with my son.
ThatвЂ™s what she was, Joanna felt suddenly
. ThatвЂ™s what they all were, all the Stepford wives: actresses
, pleased with detergents and floor wax
, with cleansers, shampoos, and deodorants. Pretty actresses, big in the bosom
but small in the talent, playing housewives
unconvincingly, too nicey-nice to be real
If I killed my wife and mother and debauched a thousand women I couldn’t go to hell–in fact, I couldn’t go to hell if I wanted to.
I’ve tried and failed a lot. But I’ve also tried to be really clear about my brand

, I am a night owl
. My wife is an early bird

I remember a point in [writing] the story where I said, “This isn’t working, I should go and buy something at the supermarket
