Marriage Records is a small, independent record label based in Portland, Oregon, USA. It was founded in late 2002 by Curtis Knapp and Adrian Orange. The first release was a cd-r entitled Nothing by Thanksgiving. Marriage releases vinyl records, compact discs, CD-Rs, tapes, skateboards, books, posters and apparel. The label is distributed by Southern Records.

Initially a CD-R-release-only label for the first year and a half of existence, the label quickly grew in 2004 to begin releasing elaborate packaging schemas with most records. In 2006, the label released one box set, six compact discs, four compact disc/vinyl record combos, one skateboard, and one book.

In 2006 Marriage also began a new phase in its history by starting Marriage Publishing House. Its first publishing project was Tom Blood's poetry book The Sky Position, which received the 2007 Oregon Book Award for poetry from Literary Arts Inc. In 2007, it started publishing Veneer Magazine.

Knapp continues to run the day to day operations of the label in southeast Portland. As a coo-founder, Orange's involvement is unclear.

The record label's website has focused much attention on the development of a young male child named Fox, who is Knapp's son.
