THE MARRIAGE CONTRACT
But it isn't so (1) much that marriage is expensive in terms of money, as that it is expensive in terms of life (2) itself, especially when it goes wrong, as it did in the (3) case of Mr and Mrs Stark. Mrs Stark was given a divorce because of the unreasonable behaviour of her husband. He was (4) said to have (5) drawn up a contract which he forced her to sign. (6) From some points of view - particularly the point of view of a husband - the contract does not seem to be too bad a (7) thing. In it, Mrs Stark was not allowed to mention the names of her parents or brother in the house. She could only visit her parents twice a month, the cost to be (8) met from the household budget. She would have to return to the house in (9) plenty of time to prepare Mr Stark's evening meal. Her parents could visit her once a month while he was out. If he was in, then they would have to meet somewhere else. Mrs Stark would be allowed £2 a week (10) as money for her personal use. In the (11) event of a death in the family, she would be allowed two days (12) away from the house. She could spend up to five days a year away in the event of family illness. No presents for her parents were to be paid (13) for from the housekeeping.
