Interesting Take on Marriage…

“I never was attached to that great sect

Whose doctrine is that each one should select

Out of the crowd a mistress or a friend

And all the rest, though wise and good, commend

To cold oblivion; though it is the code

Of modern morals, and the beaten road

Which those poor slaves with weary footsteps tread

Who travel to their home among the dead

By the broad highway of the world, and so

With one chain’d friend, perhaps a jealous foe,

The dreariest and the longest journey go.”

– Shelley, Percy Bysshe
