In Scotland, it was required that a woman who was thinking of taking advantage of the leap year privilege must let her intentions be known by wearing a scarlet flannel petticoat. The edge of the petticoat must be clearly visible in order to give the wary male a sporting chance to get out of the way. This is obviously a man-made rule.
**Howard V. Harper
A successful man is one who makes more money than his wife can spend. A successful woman is one who can find such a man.
There is no one who would have me – I can’t cook.
“By all means, marry. If you get a good wife, you’ll become happy; if you get a bad one, you’ll become a philosopher.”
“A good marriage would be between a blind wife and a deaf husband.”
**Michel de Montaigne
