A CYNICAL LOOK AT THE DAILY GRIND

TILL DEATH DO US PART


Today I'm attending a friend's wedding.

I'm wondering if it's really worth all that time and money since statistics show there's a more than 50 percent chance the union will end in divorce.

For legal reasons I'm all for marriage even though my man and I never have taken the plunge after 11 years of living together.

We don't want to rush things.

If we did get married, though, it appropriately would be sanctioned in front of Rodin's "Gates of Hell."

For now, if still pondering marriage,(especially after 11 years), Rodin's "The Thinker" is a propos. If you get married and realize it is a mistake , what about "The Scream" painted by Edvard Munch?

The best part about marriage is the cocktail hour at the wedding-now if you can make that 'coctail hour into a happy hour' for many years-then GO FOR IT!
