Translation of a proverb?

I've seen this quoted in multiple places around the internet. Can anyone help me with a good translation?


Выйти замуж не напасть,
как бы замужем не пропасть

It's the first time I hear this so-called 'proverb', but here is my take on it: "Surviving in a marriage is harder than getting into one (said about a woman)".

To get married is not an issue, to be married - that's the deal!
