According to the Census Bureau, more than two million people get married in the United States every year and 17 percent of the total population say “I do” more than once with about 170,000 American couples belonging to the same sex. 

No matter which category you fall into, celebrating National Spouses Day should be more about letting your special someone know they are loved, appreciated and cared for. 

So, in addition to sending gifts, flowers, and chocolates and spending time with them, go through this list of famous quotes courtesy of Goodreads and Happy Wives’ Club about love and married life, which will only help strengthen your bond with your soulmate. 

1. “When you find a guy who calls you beautiful instead of hot, who calls you back when you hang up on him, who will stand in front of you when other’s cast stones, or will stay awake just to watch you sleep, who wants to show you off to the world when you are in sweats, who will hold your hand when your sick, who thinks your pretty without makeup, the one who turns to his friends and say, ‘that’s her’, the one that would bear your rejection because losing you means losing his will to live, who kisses you when you screw up, watches the stars and names one for you and will hold and rock that baby for hours so you can sleep…..you marry him all over again.” – Shannon L. Alder
