"The married state is, after all our jokes, the happiest, being conformable to our natures. Man and woman have each of the qualities and tempers in which the other is deficient, and which in union contribute to the common felicity. Single and separate, they are not the complete human being; they are like the odd halves of scissors; they cannot answer the end of their formation."
- Benjamin Franklin, 1783
