Oscar Wilde on Love & Marriage


Oscar Wilde as a young man

Oscar Wilde's liberal / anarchical views shocked Victorian society. This was sadly to be his downfall. Here is what he had to say about marriage and love:

"One should always be in love. That is the reason one should never marry."

"In married life three is company and two none."

"Keep love in your heart. A life without it is like a sunless garden when the flowers are dead."
