Marriage

"The joy of battle comes after the first fear of death; the joy of reading Virgil comes after the boredom of learning him; the glow of the sea-bath comes after the icy shock of the sea bath; and the success of the marriage comes after the failure of the honeymoon...

Chesterton, What's Wrong with the World, pp. 36-37
