nuptial half chances

Maybe you’ll marry, maybe you won’t. Maybe you’ll have children, maybe you won’t. Maybe you’ll divorce at 40, maybe you’ll dance the funky chicken on your 75th wedding anniversary. Whatever you do, don’t congratulate yourself too much, or berate yourself either. Your choices are half chance. So are everybody else’s. – Mary Schmich

 This woman did not alight from the wedding car, on the morn of her special day, pausing for the photographer, smile and click, all the while thinking her marriage would be half chance.

This gentleman did not raise his glass, as Father of the Groom, and say a toast to communal property negotiations.

This newly married husband and wife did not smile and celebrate with their friends all the time wondering what their signatures would look like on the official divorce documents.

These wedding guests did not stop the newlyweds, who were on their way to the honeymoon, only to wish them all the blessings of shared custody arrangements.

    You’re right. There might be one or two exceptions — a person who enjoys being married, even if it’s for a year, then moves on to the next mate. Most of us enter into it believing it will be a lifetime commitment, but like Mary Schmich says… you nevah know.
