Nationality is not so important when it comes to a marriage. What matters is love. Love and fidelity.
Marriage has less beauty… but more safety than the single life. It’s full of sorrows and full of joys. It lies under more burdens, but it is supported by all the strengths of love. And those burdens are delightful.[quoting Bishop Jeremy Taylor]
Once it was, “See somebody, get excited, get married.” Now it’s, “Read a lot of books, fence with a lot of four-syllable words, psychoanalyze each other until you can’t tell the difference between a petting party and a civil service exam.”
