    It's an amusing twist on an old quotation. The original quote (from Chaucer) is "Familiarity breeds contempt."

    The amusing twist says that familiarity (getting to know someone well) breeds contempt - and children. ( quote from humorist Mark Twain). It's a humorous take on marriage.

    Getting to know someone outside of your comfort zone, breeds children.

    Familiarity can also be a metaphor for fornication.
