Taken from the following passage in A Passage in the life of Mr. Watkins Tottle (Sketches by Boz, Tales. Chapter 10):
“Matrimony is proverbially a serious undertaking. Like an over-weening predilection for brandy-and-water, it is a misfortune into which a man easily falls, and from which he finds it remarkably difficult to extricate himself. It is of no use telling a man who is timorous on these points, that it is but one plunge, and all is over.”
