Wedlock
 
Wedlock, indeed, hath oft compared been  To public feasts, where meet the public rout.  Where they that are without would fain go in,  And they that are within would fain go out.
            —Sir John Davies

  Wedlock’s like wine,—not properly judged of till the second glass.
            —Douglas Jerrold

                Honest wedlock,  Is like a banqueting house built in a garden,  On which the spring’s chaste flowers take delight  To cast their modest odours.
            —Thomas Middleton
