Poem by Thomas Urquhart
Epigrams. The First Booke. № 41. Concerning those, who marry for beauty, and wealth without regard of vertue
HOw can such wedded people lead their lives, With a respect unfainedly entire, Where husbands are not married to their wives: But money to the covetous desire: Where men in little estimation hold Womens discretion, wit, and chastitie: But meerely aime at handsomnesse, and gold, To serve their avarice, and Leacherie: Which fashion lately is become so common, That first, w'espouse the money: then, the woman.
