Where does this quote by Peter DeVries originate?

Asked by Carol (731points) April 26th, 2010

Do any of you literati know where this quote by Peter DeVries comes from? “The difficulty with marriage is that you fall in love with a personality but must live with a character.” Was it something he said or is it from something he wrote?

Thanks y’all.

I’ve been trying to track this down and it’s not really revealing sources. I think it was something he said. But he worked for the New Yorker, so it may have come from that. Wish I could help more. Groovy quote.

I’m looking for it as well. I haven’t read Peter DeVries in a long time, and perhaps it’s time to revisit. I did find a blog entry that you may enjoy.

I don’t really know either but love your avatar. Looks like a great facepainting job by someone.

Do you know who?
