It is our Golden Wedding Day today.
My favourite passage in the Odyssey says it all:
… οὐ μὲν γὰρ τσῦ γε κρεῖσσον καἱ ἄρειον,
ἤ ὅθ᾿ όμοφρονέοντε νοἠμασιν οἶκον ἔχητον
ὰνηρ ήδὲ γυνή∙ πόλλ᾿ ἄλγεα δυσμενέεσσι,
χάρματα δ᾿ εὐμενετῃσι∙ μάλιστα δέ τ᾿ ἔκλυον αὐτοί.
For there is nothing better in this world than that a man and his wife should be of one mind in a house. It discomforts their enemies and makes their friends glad, and they themselves know this better than anyone.
(Homer, Odyssey 6, 182-185)
