Martin Luther on Marriage

I’ve just come from my younger son’s wedding rehearsal.  Tomorrow is the big day.  I’m hoping and praying so much for him at this time.  I found two quotes by Martin Luther that spoke to my heart in this tonight.  Maybe they will speak to you as well.

Let the wife make her husband glad to come home and let him make her sorry to see him leave.


To have peace and love in a marriage is a gift that is next to the knowledge of the gospel.

    Sandy – Congratulations! May God bless the wedding and the marriage. This is great news!

    When you’re done with the wedding and have time to read some blog posts, you might enjoy some of the quotes I posted under the McKinley Wedding topic. I love weddings, but especially weddings of those who are sold out to God.

  5. Rev. Robert Hemsath says:

    I read that you quoted Luther just before you son’s wedding. I would like to know from where you got the quote “Let the wife…”

    I have a member of my congregation looking for the place from where it came.

    I found it in a biography of Martin Luther I had borrowed from a library. But you can also find them here:

    Hope this helps.
