Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
  Marrying … ’tis like going a long voyage to sea, where after a while even the calms are distasteful, and the storms dangerous: one seldom sees a new object, ’tis still a deal of sea, sea; husband, husband, every day,—till one’s quite cloy’d with it.
            —Aphra Behn
  Marrying a widow is an easy business, like leaping the hedge where another has gone over before.
            —Sir John Vanbrugh
  Marrying to increase love is like gaming to become rich.
            —William Wycherley
