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. 
Some people focus on the destination. Some atheists focus on what's for dinner.

So very, very old, rarely bothers to line up lines any more

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.
