“A 19th Century Marriage” / Memorable Fancies #2434

[An excerpt from Social Abominations, or, The Follies of Modern Society (1895):]

“A man marrying a woman beneath him in society, may raise her to any eminence which he himself may reach; but if a woman marry a man beneath her in society, she always goes down to his level. That is a law inexorable, and there are no exceptions.”
