Mikhail Tal describes meeting Bobby Fischer at the Varna Olympiad, 1962*:-
I asked him all sorts of questions, and in conclusion, as we were approaching the hotel, I asked, “You’ll soon turn twenty – are you thinking of marrying?” He looked at me so trustingly: “This very problem is concerning me, and I don’t what to do. Buy a second-hand car or get married?”

which side of the board do you want to take?

* according to Plietsky and Voronkov in Russians versus Fischer, Everyman Chess 2005
I would have recommended Mercedes - I understand she is reliable although a little extravagant!
