Quotes of The Day


Quote I

Love is when the other person's happiness is more important than your own.-H. Jackson Brown, Jr.


Quote II

All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt. -Charles M. Schulz


Quote III

There is no love without forgiveness, and there is no forgiveness without love. -Bryant H. McGill

Purchase a spouse? The cost of getting rid of a spouse or obtaining one has always been expensive.

Back in the early-to-mid 1800s, “wife selling” offered itself to many Brits as an easier and less costly alternative to a traditional divorce.
Before 1857, the year that the first divorce court would appear in England, divorcing one’s spouse was a tough and costly endeavor. In order to legally file for the dissolution of a marriage, you’d need a private Act of Parliament and the blessing of a church — necessities that would, today, cost around $15,000.
