A wedding is a genuinely peculiar thing ... on the one hand, it is two people in engaging in perhaps the single most intimate act possible: Looking one another in the eye and promising to stay together forever (think sex is intimate? ... it is nowhere close to saying "I do"...)...
Even further, my wife and I both found that we internally relaxed fully around one another after we were married ... but that it was not until we had done so that we even realized we hadn't been relaxed before marriage.
There really is something profound that happens at a wedding. It is hard to explain, but as someone that was in a couple of long term relationships prior to marriage, and was committed to my wife before we married ... it is different after you take the vows. It just is.
Marriage is not a product one buys, it is a gift one gives ... but if it is given with no reservations, to an equal that returns it with similar intensity and commitment, nothing else on earth delivers the deep, silent ecstasy that is added to the days of both people.
