"because I want no children." One of the ancient sages was so much 

impressed with the disappointments and anxieties of matrimony, that when 

he was asked, at what time, a man should marry? replied, "If he be 

young, not yet; if older, not at all." 

 

This sentiment however, so repugnant to all our ideas of social 

improvement, as well as to the command of our Creator, who presented 

woman to man as a helpmate, because it was not good that he should live 

alone, and demanded of them to "be fruitful and multiply," will find no 

advocates except among the disappointed, the ignorant, and the 

abandoned. "The love of woman" is a feeling too deeply rooted in the 

breast of man, and the reality of domestic felicity has been too long 

tested by experience, for either to be sacrificed on the altar of the 

revilers of matrimony, whether they be libertines, weak husbands, or 

misnamed "philosophers." 

 

The dearest boon from Heaven above, 

Is bliss which brightly hallows home, 

'Tis sunlight to the world of love, 

And life's pure wine without its foam. 

There is a sympathy of heart 

Which consecrates the social shrine, 

Robs grief of gloom and doth impart 

A joy to gladness all divine.
