Mariage pluvieux, mariage heureux: a wedding on a rainy day makes for a happy marriage. This make-the-best-of-bad-weather maxim actually is a deformation of another French dictum: mariage plus vieux, mariage heureux. The older the couple, the more likely the spouses are wisened, thus increasing the chances of a happy marriage.
