Marriage 159 "They say that marriage is a magic change…I’m not changed." Sinclair Lewis, Main Street.

Marriage 160 "She dropped into his lap and (after he had jerked back his head to save his eye glasses, and removed the glasses, and settled her in a position less cramping to his legs, and casually cleared his throat) he kissed her amiably…." Sinclair Lewis, Main Street.

Marriage 161 "They trailed up-stairs, after he had turned out the lights and twice tested the front door to make sure it was fast." Sinclair Lewis, Main Street.

Marriage 170 "What you want is a nice sweet cow of a woman who will enjoy having your dear friends talk about the weather and spit on the floor!" Sinclair Lewis, Main Street.

Marriage 228 "A thousand dreams governed by the fiction she had read…absorbed her drowsy lake afternoons, but always in the midst of them Kennicott came out from town, drew on khaki trousers which were plastered with dry fish scales, asked, 'Enjoying yourself?' and did not listen to her answer." Sinclair Lewis, Main Street.

RayS: It certainly isn't marriage Hollywood style, is it?
