Over the phone: "Hey ! Sorry man I couldn’t be there on your wedding day,
but I really feel so happy for you two,
heres me wishing you all the best of health,
happiness and prosperity for your married life!
It was Mrs. Campbell, for instance, who, on a celebrated occasion,
threw her companion into a flurry by describing her recent marriage as
"the deep, deep peace of the double-bed after the hurly-burly of the chaise-longue."
For two people in a marriage to live together day after day
is unquestionably the one miracle the Vatican has overlooked.
The man who never in his life
Has washed the dishes with his wife
Or polished up the silver plate -
He still is largely celibate.
Wives are young men's mistresses;
companions for middle age; and old men's nurses.
Francis Bacon, "Of Marriage and Single Life,"
If you made a list of the reasons why any couple got married,
and another list of the reasons for their divorce,
you'd have a hell of a lot of overlapping.
