Default Need help with a famous saying.......

Okay guys, I need your help please. I'm going to begin working on the wedding quilt for Jackie and Jason this weekend. I want my square to have the saying "a son is a son until he takes a wife, a daughter is a daughter for all of her life." Does anyone know the exact wording for this?

I'm not sure of the wording, ML, but in case you need more ideas, here's a site with a number of wedding-related sayings and poems. It's at Ultimate Wedding, a site I am finding absolutely invaluable in my wedding planning. You might want to pass the site on to Jackie as well.

Cheers,
Michelle B.

ML ...

It's not In Bartlett's.

This is what I found on Google

Your son is your son until he marries, but your daughter is your daughter until you die.
- (Irish) [Proverbs]

I think the more common versions are prettier.

I think the real quote here is a

A man is a man until he takes a wife
A daughter, once wed, is the boss for life
