Wisdom from the Golden Age

Marriage advice,in time for Divorce Day

“Marriage oughtn’t to be easy and divorce difficult,; it ought to be just the other way about. A couple ought to have to go up before a judge and say: ‘Please, we’ve lived together for two years now and we’re quite certain we’re suited to each other. We’ve got our witnesses here to swear that we’re terribly fond of each other and hardly ever quarrel, and we like the same things.'”

Anthony Berkeley, Jumping Jenny
