The Best Time for Marriage.

The best time for marriage willbe towards thirty, for as the younger times are unfit, either to choose or to govern a wife and family, so, if thou stay long, thon shalt hardly see the education of thy children, who, being left to strangers, are in effect lost: and better were it to be unborn than ill-bred: for thereby thy posterity shall eitherperish or remain a shame to thy name and family.
