” By all means marry.  if you get a good wife, you will be happy.  if you get a bad one, you will become a philosopher”.                                                                                                 (Socrates,  Greek philosopher of the classic golden age of Greece. 5th century BC. one of the founding fathers of Western  philosophy.  Socrates commited suicide by drinking hemlock, not because he had a bad wife! but as a protest against a bad ruler of Athens, Critias.)
