Inured by C.J. Dennis

A London cablegram says that the danger period of matrimony is 12 years after the wedding.

Young man about to marry,
   Don't hesitate, I pray;
No need for you to tarry
   If you can only stay.

So let it be your prayer
   That you can see it out;
For, if you are a stayer
   You'll win to bliss, no doubt.

Tho' she may nag and scold you,
   And drive you mad at first,
Let this bright thought uphold you;
   The first twelve years are worst.
