Marriage is, I think, the best of all adventure stories. Or at least it can be. As André Gregory says in My Dinner with André (dir. Louis Malle, 1981),
Have a real relationship with a person that goes on for years: that’s completely unpredictable. Then you’ve cut off all your ties to the land and you’re sailing into the unknown, into uncharted seas.Elaine and I were married twenty-eight years ago on this day. We are still sailing. Happy anniversary, Elaine.
[May marriage soon be for all partners.]
