Love and Marriage

With my friends Heather and David getting married this weekend, I’m in a wedding kind of mood. And who better to wax poetic about life stages than Joseph Campbell?

“Marriage is not a love affair. A love affair is a totally different thing. A marriage is a commitment to that which you are. That person is literally your other half. And you and the other are one … But a marriage is a life commitment, and a life commitment means the prime concern of your life. If marriage is not the prime concern, you are not married.”

And perhaps his best quote about love:

“Love is a friendship set to music.”

Congratulations, friends. May your love surprise you, thrill you, comfort you, and teach you something important about yourselves.

Get ready for an adventure …
