Matrimony, like war, is a dangerous game.  The man who ventures into it takes his chances.  If he knows its hazards in advance, then he has no sound ground for complaint when they turn against him.  And if he is so stupid that he doesn’t know them in advance, then he is too stupid to be worth bothering about.  The soldier faces sudden death.  The married man faces home cooking.  The most that either can ask, if the fortunes of the day go against him, is Christian burial. – H. L. Mencken (1880-1956)
