Of Love and Marriage

April 17, 2008

Of Love and Marriage.

 Sometimes we come across a serious piece of reading, well written and with a twinkle of humour, that is irresistible. It is like finding gold in the mud, only in this case, finding gold amid a myriad of jewel-like jelly beans.

 I am a fairly frequent visitor to ‘Fools Paradise, Infinity on a Shoestring’ and this amazing dissertation may have been there for a while, demurely set out in tiny print and almost hidden beneath a smorgasbord of unusual delights, which might distract all but the most steadfast of good literature seekers. My advice is — find it, copy the article, paste it on a document and adjust the print to readable size. Of course, if you happen to be an ant, this process is not necessary.

 So why bother?

Several reasons:

If you are in a partnership or thinking of getting married, your path to happiness with be illuminated for you both, It most certainly will be enhanced.

 If you are married, read this and you just might stay that way — happily.

If you have problems with relationships of any kind, you might find useful words of wisdom to help you in your situation.

 If you are part of that group of people who believe in marriage, whether as a political party flag-flyer or out of conviction for the good of mankind, you may find the thrust of a point of view — the words — to aid you in your task explaining why.

 If you like simplicity of ‘argument’,  that is, reading that is not too esoteric to take in with your morning coffee or lunchtime sandwich, this could be for you.

Finally, apart from enhancing your own life, spreading ‘the word’ around the office, the home and the ‘local pub’ mind well bring a little light and happiness into a world torn by failing relationships.

Where to find these jewels of wisdom?

And finally, a quote from the end piece about the meaning of Love:

“… intelligent love is the only value worth living for, and such love is never wrong.”

 If you want to argue that statement — take it up with Inkletter.
