'And when shopping for furniture'
Once I determine which international governing body has the sole authority, there must be a procedure, or some excruciatingly detailed protocol to follow, when one wishes to petition for a change in the usual way of doing things. I'm talking about the age old, “in sickness and in health, for better or worse,” traditional marriage vows.
While the idea of promising to give yourself so completely and unselfishly to another is serious business and quite appealing for many, I am proposing the addition of a single amendment which would, on the surface, appear to alleviate what I perceive to be the most friction-causing event to the newly (or not so newly) betrothed. Whether performed by the local justice o' the peace or your clergy member of choice, the simple phrase “and when shopping for furniture” could be tagged onto the end of the “I do” response segment of the ceremony, and when delivered with conviction and undying love, would leave nary a dry eye amongst the guests.
I would never have thought this to be a serious consideration for wedded bliss, but for the fact that my wife and I, after 20 some odd years of marriage, (I’m not using odd as in “I have no idea how long we’ve been married.” I’m using odd as in “At times I can be very odd.”) began the long, arduous task of thinking about refurnishing the family room in our home.
