START: Young marrieds have many problems to get used to. For some of them this is the first person of the opposite sex the other has ever known. The husband may not be used to having a woman in his bathroom. The wife may not be used to a strong masculine odor in her boudoir.

END: So I mumble platitudes to these people who come to me with these insoluble problems, and I think to myself, “Why didn’t they think before they got married? Why does no one ever think? Why did God make people stupid?” (Pause) Are there any questions?
