Sorry for the gap between quotes. Here is Giovanni Boccaccio on philosophers and marriage from The early lives of Dante (New York: Frederick Unger, 1963, pp. 24–5):
Philosopher’s should leave [marriage] to wealthy fools, to noblemen, and to peasants, while they themselves find delight in philosophy, a far better bride than any other.
I doubt many would agree with Boccaccio these days so long as we interpret marriage broadly (common law, extended co-habitation etc.), but something to think about.
