Thoughts On Marriage

I have nothing insightful to say and this post goes along with my moratorium, since the blog's inception, on the topic generally.

Kim Du Toit, a manly man I've enjoyed linking to over the years (he of gun-loving fame) offers a man's perspective on marriage.

Rachel Lucas offers a woman's perspective on women staying single and loving it.

Marriage is a mystery. All the books, all the advice, all the wisdom of the sages matters little ultimately. All marriages, good and bad, are mysterious entities--truly a new unit unto itself.

As for staying single, there are numerous benefits, if my sister's life is any indication. But if you value companionship, safe sex and comfort, well, sometimes the single life can fall short. But then, so can married life.

Love LOVE Rachel Lucas. Actually found her through one of your links.

As far as being single...I really enjoyed it. I didn't get married until I was 34. I am very much a people person, but I need my alone time AND my freedom. I wasn't a miserable single person.
