Happiness in marriage is entirely a matter of chance.
It is always incomprehensible to a man that a woman should ever refuse an offer of marriage.
It was the marriage that was important; Jane Austen rarely even bothered to write about the wedding.
Jane Austen is the pinnacle to which all other authors aspire.

My role models were childless: Virginia Woolf, Jane Austen, George Eliot, the Brontes.
Joyce Carol Oates
Bigamy is having one wife too many. Monogamy is the same.
