Pride and Prejudice...

I just finished reading Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen.  I found many amusing things in this book, but the following passage really stood out:

"Happiness in marriage is entirely a matter of chance. If the dispositions of the parties are ever so well known to each other, or ever so similar beforehand, it does not advance their felicity in the least. They always continue to grow sufficiently unlike afterwards to have their share of vexation; and it is better to know as little as possible of the defects of the person with whom you are to pass your life."

MMM?  I guess that is one way to look at it!
