There's nothing more admirable than two people who see eye to eye keeping house as man and wife, confounding their enemies and delighting their friends.
As true today as it was 3,000 years ago, this quote by the ancient Greek writer is a testament to marriage. Just as contemporary couples rely on love to build a successful marriage, their predecessors shared the same goals, dreams, struggles and sense of loving commitment.
Homer's words are universal and can be used in toasts given by parents, friends, or even the bride and groom themselves. It also stands on its own as a celebration of marriage. After all, what better goal could a married couple have than to keep a comfortable house, unite against troubles and share love and friendship? Keep your toast simple, and wrap up this quote with, "We're delighted to share this day with you and look forward to the future."
