FOR THE BIRDS, AND MOSTLY THE CHILDREN TOO

To Be or Not to Be

The marriage edition, by way of Charles Darwin.

To marry: Children — (if it Please God) — Constant companion, (& friend in old age) who will feel interested in one, — object to be beloved & played with. — —better than a dog anyhow.— Home, & someone to take care of house — Charms of music & female chit-chat. — These things good for one’s health.

Not to marry: Freedom to go where one liked — choice of Society & little of it. — Conversation of clever men at clubs — Not forced to visit relatives, & to bend in every trifle. — to have the expense & anxiety of children — perhaps quarelling — Loss of time. — cannot read in the Evenings — fatness & idleness — Anxiety & responsibility — less money for books &c — if many children forced to gain one’s bread. — (But then it is very bad for ones health to work too much)
