Context

“[Enter Lord Illingworth and Mrs. Allonby.]
Sir John. Certainly, my love. [Exeunt.]
Mrs. Allonby. Curious thing, plain women are always jealous of their husbands, beautiful women never are!
Lord Illingworth. Beautiful women never have time. They are always so occupied in being jealous of other people's husbands.
Mrs. Allonby. I should have thought Lady Caroline would have grown tired of conjugal anxiety by this time! Sir John is her fourth!
Lord Illingworth. So much marriage is certainly not becoming. Twenty years of romance make a woman look like a ruin; but twenty years of marriage make her something like a public building.” source
