I Love My Wife Quotes

We know how important it is to tell someone we love them and to do so often. And yet, not all of us have the gift to string together a poetic phrase to convey that love to another. Thankfully, many others have done so and were willing to share those words with the world. What are some of the greatest quotes ever used by a husband to tell his wife that he loves her?

Some of the greatest quotes from husbands about how much they love their wives include Van Morrison’s “I can hear her heartbeat for a thousand miles, and the heavens open every time she smiles” and F. Scott Fitzgerald’s “I love her, and that’s the beginning and end of everything.”

From songs and poetry to film scenes and social media posts, men have always found ways to convey their love for their wives. Sometimes humorous, often haunting, but always passionate, here are some of the most profound quotes about loving your wife.

1. “I Can Hear Her Heartbeat For A Thousand Miles, And The Heavens Open Every Time She Smiles….”

Van Morrison wrote the song “Crazy Love” for his 1970 album, “Moondance,” and it became a love anthem throughout the 1970s. It has since been covered by numerous other artists, including Michael Bublé, Ray Charles, and Rod Stewart, and it’s no surprise considering the poetic nature of the lyrics.

The song is about Van Morrison’s love for his wife, Janet Planet, whom he had married just a few months before. It talks about how he loves her so much that having her with him made the bad times good and the good times better.

Crazy Love became an all-time favorite wedding song and is often chosen for the first dance. Unfortunately, there’s some irony since Van Morrison and Janet Planet sadly divorced about four years later.

Still, the words “I can hear her heartbeat for a thousand miles, and the heavens open every time she smiles” can convey your love for your wife in a deep and powerful way.

2. “I Love My Wife So Much That Nothing Seems Impossible When I’m With Her. Except For Deciding Where To Eat.”

This quote was posted on Facebook by Mark Gungor, the world-famous speaker and author of “Laugh your way to a better marriage.” It’s a funny way to look at it, as with most of the things Mark posts, but it reflects a love for his wife that makes him feel he can do anything and overcome every obstacle.

Considering the fact that Mark has over two decades of experience in helping married couples overcome their challenges, and he’s currently married to his second wife (after his first wife sadly passed away), he knows what he’s talking about when he says that a man’s love for his wife can make him do incredible things.

Besides, we all know the frustration of a married couple’s inability to decide where to eat.

3. “She’s My Copilot, My Navigator, My Drinking Buddy, My Fellow Sufferer, My Nurse, My Rock, My Manic Pixie Dream Girl.”

This Quora quote comes from user Andrew T. after five years of marriage. It answers the question if people truly loved their wives or husbands or if they settled.

Andrew mentions how many of his friends and family thought he settled for less when he decided to marry a woman who was so utterly different from what he always thought he wanted in a wife. She looks different, has different traits, and even has habits that irritate him to no end.

And yet, he absolutely adores her and cannot imagine his life without her. His entire post explains how people often limit themselves with their ideas of the “perfect” partner when the truth is that nobody is perfect. When you learn to see the awesomeness of the person you’re with, it could surprise you how happy you could be with someone different.

Andrew finished his post with the words, “I wouldn’t trade what we have for anything, neither Solomon’s wisdom nor Nebuchadnezzar’s gold.”

4. “I Love Her, And That’s The Beginning And End Of Everything.”

F. Scott Fitzgerald, the influential American author of The Great Gatsby, wrote these words about his wife, Zelda. The letters between Scott and Zelda are a poetic (and often haunting) look at the love between these two tortured souls: an alcoholic husband and his possibly schizophrenic wife.

Their many love letters tell a story; not a Hallmark movie about finding love and fighting for it, but it is still a tale worth telling. It’s about two people who struggled to control their mental states but always found peace and comfort in their love for one another.

Zelda was the love of Scott’s life and his muse, and it’s evident that his life was forever changed after she had her breakdown.

This quote is a statement that, no matter how dark the circumstances were, his love for his wife would always be the entirety of his existence.

5. “I Have Found The One Whom My Soul Loves.”

King Solomon of Israel is known for many things: his seemingly infinite wisdom, the wealth he gathered over the years of his rule, the era of peace that Israel enjoyed while he was king, and his many, many wives.

That last point makes it questionable to include one of his phrases in a list of quotes about loving your wife, but there is a good reason.

Most of Solomon’s marriages were political in nature, as was the custom in those days. However, scholars believe that the Song of Solomon, where this quote comes from, was a collection of poetry between him and the true love of his life, whom many believe was the Egyptian Moti Maris.

She reportedly sacrificed herself by drinking poison that was meant for Solomon when her father attempted to seize the throne of Israel. Moti and Solomon had been married for 35 years when this happened, and he buried her in a royal tomb surrounded by unimaginable riches.

6. “…No Matter What Happens, I Fall Deeper And Deeper In Love Every Day.”

As far away as most marriages we’ve looked at are from the typical Hallmark movie, Hugh Jackman’s marriage with Deborra-Lee Furness is the exact opposite. In the world of Hollywood, where failed marriages are as common as cut film footage, Jackman and Furness make no secret of their love over their 25-plus-year marriage.

Hugh’s entire comment is, “I have a terrific marriage, but unlike a lot of relationships where they ebb and flow, no matter what happens you fall deeper and deeper in love every day. It’s kind of the best thing that can happen to you. It’s thrilling.”

The love that Hugh Jackman has for his wife, and the ways in which he tells and shows her, should encourage all men to do more to show that same love for their wives.


Finding the right words to tell your wife you love her can be difficult, but we don’t always have to be profound or poetic about it. Often, great professions of love are born from pain and torment, as we can see in the case of F. Scott Fitzgerald.

That’s why it’s important to tell her, using whatever words you have, as often as you can. Never leave any doubt that you love your wife.
