From: What He Must Be If He Wants To Marry My Daughter

A quote from the opening of chapter 4:

"[My] dear son and daughter, you need not consider praying for a pious spouse a disgrace. For you do not consider it a disgrace to ask God to give you a sound hand or leg... Now a pious spouse is as necessary as a sound hand or leg. For if a husband or wife do not turn out well, you enjoy few good days or hours and would prefer to have a paralyzed hand or led instead." ~Martin Luther, What Luther Says
