My reasons for marrying are, first, that I think it a right thing for every clergyman in easy circumstances (like myself) to set the example of matrimony in his parish.

To my mind, a man must choose a wife for himself, without advice from anybody. As I said to Tony before he ever proposed to this girl: Make sure that she's good, and a lady, and healthy, and intelligent, and that she's going to get on with your friends and relations, and you with hers--and then, my dear boy, if you feel that you can afford to marry--then I suppose there's no help for it.
