Why is it, do you think, that people get married?
That’s interesting because I would have taken you for a romantic. Why then?
Because we need a witness to our lives. There’s a billion people on the planet. I mean, what does any one life really mean? But in a marriage, you’re promising to care about everything – the good things, the bad things, the terrible things, the mundane things… All of it. All the time. Every day. You’re saying, your life will not go unnoticed, because I will notice it. Your life will not go unwitnessed, because I will be your witness. You can quote me on that, if you like.
