Matrimony
 
Come, is the bride ready to go to church?
        Shakespeare.—Romeo and Juliet, Act IV. Scene 5.
  1
        Here, afore heaven,
I ratify this my rich gift——
Do not smile at me that I boast her off,
For thou shalt find she will outstrip all praise,
And make it halt behind her.
        Shakespeare.—The Tempest, Act IV. Scene 1.
  2
Quiet days, fair issue, and long life.
        Shakespeare.—The Tempest, Act IV. Scene 1.
  3
        Give me your hands:
Let grief and sorrow still embrace his heart
That doth not wish you joy!
        Shakespeare.—The Tempest, Act V. Scene 1.
  4
        My gentle lady,
I wish you all the joy that you can wish.
        Shakespeare.—Merchant of Venice, Act III. Scene 2.
  5
I don’t think matrimony consistent with the liberty of the subject.
        Farquhar.—The Twin Rivals, Act V.
  6
Our Maker bids increase;——
Hail, wedded love, mysterious law, true source
Of human offspring.
        Milton.—Paradise Lost, Book IV.

The wedding, you know, is always before the sermon—which is one of the chief things wherein hanging and matrimony disagree.
