Quote #4

George: It isn't the prettiest spectacle…seeing a couple of middle-aged types hacking away at each other, all red in the face and winded, missing half the time. (2.36)

This is a pretty apt description of the state of George and Martha's marriage.

Quote #5

Nick: I married her because she was pregnant. […] It was a hysterical pregnancy. She blew up, and then she went down. (1.49-1.51)

Nick reveals here that his marriage, which seemed to be perfect at first, was really just a marriage of necessity.

Quote #6

Martha: And along [George] came, bright eyed, into the History Department. And do you know what I did , dumb cluck that I am? […] I fell for him. (1.736)

This admission on Martha's part reveals that her now hateful marriage did begin with love.
