Men dream of courtship, but in wedlock wake.
— Alexander Pope

The chain of wedlock is so heavy that it takes two to carry it -- and sometimes three.
Alexander Dumas wedlock quote

They dream in courtship, but in wedlock wake.
— Alexander Pope

In the perfect wedlock, the man, I should say, is the head, but the woman the heart, with which he cannot dispense.
— Ruckett

To the moralist prostitution does not consist so much in the fact that the woman sells her body, but rather that she sells it out of wedlock.
— Emma Goldman
