There is nothing so good and lovely as when man and wife in their home dwell together in unity of mind and disposition," says Odysseus in Homer’s Odyssey. "A great vexation it is to their enemies and a feast of gladness to their friends, surest of all do they, within themselves, feel all the good it means."

Thank you Phaedrus.
I actually read the section again in Captain Corellis Mandolin last night and it is the first part of your response.
It is odd becasue I was starting to think it was mis-quoted becasue everywhere I have looked on the internet the quote is not the same. The nearest I have got is the quote I put in my first post and that draws some elements from the second part of your response.
