Men, Women, and Marriage

Great quote... It would by my Facebook status if it were only a sentence shorter.

"To put the matter in one metaphor, the sexes are two stubborn pieces of iron; if they be welded together, it must be while they are red-hot. Every woman has to find out that her husband is a selfish beast, because every man is a selfish beast by the standard of a woman. But let her find out he is a beast while they are still both in the story of "Beauty and the Beast." Every man has to find out that his wife is a cross - that is to say, sensitive to the point of madness; for every woman is mad by the masculine standard. But let him find out that she is mad while her madness is more worth considering than anyone else's sanity." -G.K. Chesterton
