If your spouse does not possess the virtues needed for married life,
whatever else you possess in life is irrelevant.
If your spouse has the qualities suited for family life,
what is it that you do not have? If not, what is it that you have?
Those who dont have respectable family lives,
will not be able to stride with a lion-like pride before their opponents.
A great harmonious married life is a boon;
having good offspring adds luster to it.
