Isidore, Etymologies 9.7.29
item in eligenda uxore quattuor res inpellunt hominem ad amorem: pulchritudo, genus, divitiae, mores. melius tamen si in ea mores quam pulchritudo quaeratur. nunc autem illae quaeruntur, quas aut divitiae aut forma, non quas probitas morum commendat.
Likewise in the selection of a wife, four things move a man to love: her beauty, family, wealth and character. However it is better if character rather than beauty is what one seeks in her. But nowadays those women are sought after who are recommended by their wealth or beauty, not those who are recommended by the probity of their characters.
