Holy Matrimony or a Written Contractual Arrangement?

I prefer holy matrimony to written contractual arrangements, i.e. prenuptial agreements. It requires sacrifice, patience, and love that runs very deep. It must steer clear of rushing, eye to eye avoidance and listening halfheartedly. It provides for someone with whom to stay up late under trying circumstances, through old age. It can be very romantic given the lack of anything contractual beyond a simple, marriage certificate. It’s much more than friendship with an agreed to set of rules. Paraphrasing John Dunne, no man or woman is an island. To me, holy matrimony is immeasurably sweeter than the island of which he speaks.
