people, very foolishly, make themselves uneasy because they are bound. 

Sir Jonah Barrington seems to think it a natural propensity. He 

says,--"The moment any two animals, however fond before, are fastened 

together by a chain they cannot break, they begin to quarrel without 

any apparent reason, and peck each other solely because they cannot get 

loose again." But it must be remembered that people enter into marriage 

with a knowledge of the permanency of the union, and perhaps they seldom 

repent, except they had been deceived; and this we may hope would not 

occur frequently. After the Romans had introduced a law of divorce, no 

respectable person, for the space of forty years, availed himself of it. 

Divorcement was much practised among the Jews, and was productive of 

great evil. One of the Jewish doctors asserted, that if a man beheld a 

woman who was handsomer than his wife, he might put away his wife and 

marry her; and thus all the wives in Judea, except the handsomest, might 

have been divorced. Josephus observes, on one occasion, very 

coolly,--"About this time I put away my wife, who had borne me three 

children, not being pleased with her manners."
