"It is not for me to say by what means or what degrees, some wives manage to keep down some husbands as they do, although I may have my private opinion on the subject, and may think that no Member of Parliament ought to be marreid, inasmuch as three married members out of every four must vote according to their weives' consciences (if there be such things), and not according to their own."

- Dickens, Nickleby, 1838.
