George Washington

A quote from George Washington

It has ever been a maxim with me, through life, neither to promote, nor to prevent a matrimonial connection, unless there should be something, indispensably requiring interference in the latter. I have always considered Marriage as the most interesting event of one's life. The foundation of happiness or misery.

— Letter to Burwell Bassett [May 23rd 1785]
