I love being married. It's so great to find that one special person you want to annoy for the rest of your life.

They marry, and discover what nothing but voluntary blindness had before concealed; they wear out life in altercations, and charge nature with cruelty.
By all means marry; if you get a good wife, you'll be happy. If you get a bad one, you'll become a philosopher.
