You expect that you will be married, and then your troubles will be over; some say that then they begin. I do not endorse that statement; but I am sure that they are not over, for there is another set of trials that begin then.
It is wise to marry when we can marry wisely, and then the sooner the better.
Married life is not all sugar, but grace in the heart will keep away most of the sours.
When husbands and wives are well yoked, how light their load becomes!
A well-matched couple carry a joyful life between them, as the two spies carried the cluster of Eshcol. They are a brace of birds of Paradise. They multiply their joys by sharing them, and lessen their troubles by dividing them: this is fine arithmetic.

Marriage was the last relic of paradise left among men, and Jesus hasted to honour it with his first miracle.
