The following is the original source cited in the sentences below:
The marriage state is certainly that in which women, generally speaking,
can be most useful; but I am far from thinking that a woman, once married, ought
to consider the engagement as indissoluble (especially if there be no children
to reward her for sacrificing her feelings) in case her husband merits neither
her love, nor esteem. Esteem will often supply the place of love; and prevents
a woman from being wretched, though it may not make her happy. The magnitude
of a sacrifice ought always to bear some proportion to the utility in view;
and for a woman to live with a man, for whom she can cherish neither affection
nor esteem, or even be of any use to him, excepting in the light of a house-keeper,
is an abjectness of condition, the enduring of which no concurrence of circumstances
can ever make a duty in the sight of God or just men. If indeed she submits
to it merely to be maintained in idleness, she has no right to complain bitterly
of her fate; or to act, as a person of independent character might, as if she
had a title to disregard general rules.
But the misfortune is, that many women only submit in appearance, and forfeit
their own respect to secure their reputation in the world.
