Benjamin Franklin to a young friend

                                                                                                                                            June. 25. 1745
My dear friend:
       I know of no Medicine fit to diminish the violent natural inclination you mention; and if I did, I think I should not communicate it to you. Marriage is the proper Remedy. It is the most natural State of Man, and therefore the State in which you will find solid happiness. Your Reason against entering into it at present appears to be not well founded. The Circumstantial Advantages you have in View by Postponing it, are not only uncertain, but they are small in comparison with the Thing itself, 'the being married and settled'. It is the Man and Woman united that makes the complete human Being. Separate she wants his force of Body and Strength of Reason; he her Softness, Sensibility and acute Discernment. Together they are most likely to succeed in the World. A single man has not nearly the Value he would have in that State of Union. He is an incomplete Animal. He resembles the odd Half of a Pair of Scissors.
       If you get a prudent, healthy wife, your Industry in your Profession, with her good Economy, will be a Fortune sufficient.
Your Affectionate Friend,
                                                                               Benj. Franklin
