If you believe not being a cuckold is such a fine thing, the best policy is not to get married at all.[Si n’être point cocu vous semble un si grand bien, Ne vous point marier en est le vrai moyen.]
I would have everybody marry if they can do it properly: I do not like to have people throw themselves away; but everybody should marry as soon as they can do it to advantage.

Divorce is probably of nearly the same date as marriage. I believe, however, that marriage is some weeks the more ancient.
But I think it must be easier for a girl to marry someone she doesn’t know, because the more you get to know men, the harder it is to love them.
As a general thing, all women league themselves against a married man who is accused of tyranny; for a secret tie unites them all, as it unites all priests of the same religion.
