How to use wedlock in a sentence?

  1. Syrian Nora Joumblatt in response:

    We are in danger of losing generations of young Syrian girls due to the lack of education, desperate and displaced Syrians are increasingly seeing early marriage as a way to secure the social and financial future of their daughters. We need to provide an alternative: Keep young girls in school instead of being pressured into wedlock.

  2. Ruckett:

    In the perfect wedlock, the man, I should say, is the head, but the woman the heart, with which he cannot dispense.
