It was a sunny, warm day like today. It was Easter Monday!
Pity he didn’t buy into the concept at the same level that I did!
I also seem to remember saying “For better, for worse…”
Alex apparently chose “For better but not for worse”
Perhaps the marriage vows should read:
“I promise to love you until such time when someone else appears on the horizon.
I also promise not to make any attempt to resolve any issues I feel we have.
I solemnly promise not to tell you what’s wrong. I will bottle up all my issues and then accuse you of not listening.
I promise to put you in control – and then accuse you of controlling me
Finally I promise to remain your friend, your lover, to be passionate, to laugh with you, to share adventures together and when it seems the least likely I will leave
Then I promise to bolt at speed – except when I feel a bit unsure, then I’ll come back and rub salt into the wound of your broken heart – just to make sure it REALLY hurts.”
It would meet the reality of life much better wouldn’t it!
