Getting Married

  • Narmin Alasovahas quoted2 years ago
    The conditions of dissolution may vary widely, from those on which Henry VIII. procured his divorce from Katharine of Arragon to the pleas on which American wives obtain divorces (for instance, "mental anguish" caused by the husband's neglect to cut his toenails); but there is always some point at which the theory of the inviolable better-for-worse marriage breaks down in practice.
  • Дмитрий Кувшиновhas quoted4 years ago
    The only people who successfully evade it are those who actually avail themselves of its shelter by pretending to be married when they are not, and by Bohemians who have no position to lose and no career to be closed
  • Дмитрий Кувшиновhas quoted4 years ago
    There is no subject on which more dangerous nonsense is talked and thought than marriage.
  • Diana Indrapatihas quoted9 years ago
