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.
An early-rising man, a good spouse but a bad husband.[Hombre madrugador, buen esposo pero mal marido.]
A marriage is hard work and sometimes it’s a bit of a bore. It’s like housework. It’s never finished. You’ve just got to grit your teeth and keep working away at it, day after day.
A man should have two wives: one to love and one to sew on his buttons.[Uno necesitaría dos esposas, una para quererla, y otra para que le pegue los botones.]
