If you wouldn't marry her mother don't marry her.

And that, my friends, brings an end to the institution of marriage.

I'm with Tank on this one, actually. I would have married my MiL if we had met and were the same age. She's good people.

Pay attention to your date at a restaurant. How do they treat the staff that waits on them? It's a good indication of the true personality.

Well that is just silly.
So females pass their genes onto their female offspring and presumably males pass theirs onto their sons, exclusively.
I don't a accept this, if my daughter is going to bring home a boy she wants to keep for a while, I will take the effort, (very slight) to look slinky and seductive, well aged and desirable.

The absolute value of punishment for a bad act always exceeds the absolute value of reward for a good act.

In a more colloquial phrasing, the bad is always worse than the good is better.

Thus, the lesson is that a life of relative calm is superior to a life of dramatic ups and downs. The valleys are lower than the mountains are high compared to the normal level.
