6 Sincere Engagement Anniversary Quotes To Toast The Day He Proposed

By Gopika JairamGopika Jairam  • 

People sometimes wish there were sand-detectors or something similar so one could search for love. As Rochefoucauld would say, true love is like a ghost that everyone talks about but only a few have seen. True love is such a mysterious thing. Few find it; fewer keep it. If you have found your true love, ‘the one’, the significant other or the better half or any other cliché that you are okay with, dare I say put a ring on it! There is nothing like the promise made between two people who share a soul to share the rest of their bodily lives together. With the engagement anniversary celebrations in the air, here are some beautiful engagement anniversary quotes to cherish the moment, and to re-affirm your true love for your partner!


One of the Engagement anniversary quotes, this is a strong message to all lovers across the globe. If anyone ever has had the fear of losing one’s love, or the fear of whether this passion will last through the years, it is safe to say that there is a detectable lack of faith there. In true love, there is no doubt about whether the passion is real or lasting, there is no fear whatsoever. Love grows in full, along with the lovers, celebrating and cementing together the years and the memories made during the passage of time. The promise of sealing this beautiful bond in marriage is a sure expression of the faith you have in the true love you have found. Share this quote, and share the love!


“We are not the same persons this year as last; nor are those we love. It is a happy chance if we, changing, continue to love a changed person.” – W. Somerset Maugham

One important lesson life teaches us is that change is the only constant. We change. Everyone does. This beautiful quote by Maugham is a testimony to the timelessness of love despite any other change that life may incur. Love transcends the single biggest truth of life— change. You have changed since last year; so has your partner. Celebrate the change with your beloved on your engagement anniversary!


“Experts on romance say for a happy marriage there has to be more than a passionate love. For a lasting union, they insist, there must be a genuine liking for each other. Which, in my book, is a good definition for friendship.” – Marilyn Monroe

There she goes. Monroe does it again with her sharp sense of observation, and honesty, to top it off. In order to understand romance, marriage, passion, or love, one needs empathy: the basis of every friendship. More than passionate love, the simple and strong bond of friendship can build a good foundation for a healthy marriage. In this view, marriage is just another melody of love, much like friendship. So celebrate the anniversary of a promise between two friends with this wonderful Engagement anniversary quotes!



Hopefully you are marrying the right person. Not trying to induce cold-feet here, but it is only fair to the other person as well that you both are on the same page. And that page need not dictate if you both have a similar vision for the future— the kind of house, where you want to live, how many kids, and all the other married couple stuff. It simply has to say that you both are very much in love with each other. You love your partner for who they are, and love yourself for what you are when you are with them, and you just want to be with them all the time. So much so you booked them a year ago, least someone else comes along!


Like in Monroe’s words earlier, this quote is a reverberation of the same message: of love in friendship and friendship in love. You treasure your friendships no matter how many years or how many miles have gone by. And I need not extol much about love in the same context. When it’s true a relationship always transcends time and space. But when you find a good friend in your partner there is no greater beauty or happiness in life. A true friend will never abandon you. A true friend will always be honest with you. A true friend in your true love will make you the happiest person you have never imagined you could be. Share this Engagement anniversary quotes with that special friend on your anniversary!


Here is a witty one to lighten up all the emotions in the air on your engagement anniversary! A joke is best when not explained. If you don’t get it, don’t share it. Pick any of the above! But make sure, most important of all, that you tell your partner how much you love them and can’t wait to start your life together as a married couple.

Stay true. Stay loved.
