So, which one's the wife? :1685

Question: Why are the cool Lights Female, or Night-lights?

Response: Because the Moon and Stars which are cool Night-lights, rule in the night; and for that the Night is the Days Wife.
--From The Paradoxal Discourses of F. M. Van Helmont--

1. What does it say about a person's view of relationships when they ask such a question?

2. With the way modern sex relations are, would it not be advisable to ask this question of straight couples (late at night, when they're tipsy)?
