Always disagreeable

One of my dear friends was married this weekend, in a lovely tiny old church with a Gregorian choir.  Here, tongue in cheek of course, are Mr. Woodhouse’s thoughts on marriage:

“Matrimony, as the origin of change, was always disagreeable; . . . he was very much disposed to think Miss Taylor had done as sad a thing for herself as for them, and would have been a great deal happier if she had spent all the rest of her life at Hartfield.”
