Someone on the F*cked Company thread about marriage posted a link to what the Ancient Greeks had to say about women & holy matrimony. While I'll be posting more of these in the near future, I thought I'd whet your appetite with a quick, quotable quote:
Hipponax, On Women, c. 580 BCE
Two happy days a woman brings a man: the first, when he marries her; the second, when he bears her to the grave.
Sounds like the man KNEW what he was talking about. Fellas, if you value your life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness, then you will NOT get married! Until next time...
