    But ,as has been true in many other cases, when they were at last married ,the most ideal of situations was found to have been changed to the most practical . instead of hacing shared their original duties, and as schol –boys would say, going halves, they discovered that the cares of life had been doubled.This led to some distressing moments for both our friends; they understood suddenlu that instead of dwelling in heaven they were still upon earth ,and had made themselves slaves to new laws and limitations. Instead of being freer and happier than ever before, they had assumed new responsibilities; they had established a new household, and must fulfill in some way or another the obligations of it. They looked back with affection to their engagement; they had been longing to have each other to themselves, apart from the world, but it seemed that they never felt so keenly that they were still units in modern society.

但是,正如很多其他情况一样,他们最终结婚了,却发现理想敌不过现实。他们并没有像起初在学校时男生们说的那样各自承担一半的责任,相反,对于生活的负担反而加倍了。这使我们的朋友时常感到苦恼;他们突然明白,自己并不是生活在天堂而是依然在地球上,并且成为了新的法律和规则的奴隶;他们并没有比以前更加自由和快乐,而是承担起了新的义务;既然建立了新的家庭就要或多或少尽一点家庭的责任。他们回想起了订婚时的心情;他们渴望抛弃世界而拥有彼此,但是他们似乎从未如此强烈的感受到,他们依然与现实社会联系在一起。
