Quote of the Day: Marriage

“Marrying means to halve one’s rights and double one’s duties”

Arthur Schopenhauer

Schopenhauer was a 19th Century philosopher who never married, so perhaps that might explain his take on the subject? He believed that marriage was about continuing the human species and he went on to say: ”what is looked for in marriage is not intellectual entertainment, but the procreation of children.’‘ His views on marriage seem rather dark! What do you think?
