Wedding season shows promise
Attending nuptials as a newlywed provides great perspective about the recent past — and the future
We’ve been invited to 12 weddings this year — “we” as in my new husband and I. And the experience of attending weddings as a married person has so far surprised me with its profundity. Watching another couple as they speak sometimes uncomfortably personal words in front of family and friends and friends’ unfamiliar plus-ones is a reminder of both the scripted and unspoken promises that I have made to my husband.
