Ogden Nash reading

To Keep Your Marriage Brimming
Ogden Nash (1902-1971)
To keep your marriage brimming,
With love in the loving cup,
Whenever you're wrong admit it;
Whenever you're right shut up.
so cute, I just had to share it with you. And so true to us, and just irreverent enough that I might have to fit it somewhere into our wedding too :)
made my day.


  1. Hi Rebecca, I love this quote!!! Randomly I just put 2 quotes up on my blog about love too! great minds.... The Vikram seth quote is very simlar to this one above! Although it probably isnt appropriate for a church service as it talks about breasts!

  2. Lol... it is a cool quote isn't it?? I love it so.. it's very succint and straight to the point which we like but still manages to be funny. Glad you like it too!!

  3. My boy is quiet whether he's right or wrong! Grr so annoying!

    Oh Ogden Nash you make me happy!

  4. I like this. A bride I worked with said this spontaneously after the speeches and it went down very well. Funny how it's so hard to do though!
