Marriage ~ Letters from the Heart #atozchallenge

Dear Woman:

You sure know how to challenge yourself with this years A to Z Blogging Challenge. Marriage? You really want to write about marriage?

A bribe to make a housekeeper think she’s a house holder.                                                     ~Thornton Wilder

An institution which is popular because it combines the minimum of temptation with the maximum of opportunity.                                  ~George Bernard Shaw

Neither heaven, nor hell… simply purgatory.                                                                                                ~Abraham Lincoln

Another topic with potential of stepping on toes and being controversial.  Why you picked marriage for the M topic we may never know.  Here you are, trying to come up with something witty and sound like you know what you’re talking about when you don’t have a clue.

Here’s what you’ve learned:

  • Don’t put anchovies on pizza
  • Fruit does not go in beer
  • All potato salad is the same
  • No matter how you slice it, cake is not pie

There are other things but it’s too early in the morning, you’re brain has not had enough coffee.  You just asked for a tip from Tall Cool ☺ne.  His words of wisdom: Don’t get married until you know everything! 

Tomorrow we’ll talk about needful things.

Until next time,
Your constant and faithful

What is A2ZBlogging? Using this premise, you would start beginning April First with a topic themed on something with the letter A, then on April second another topic with the letter B as the theme, and so on until you finish on April thirtieth with the theme based on the letter Z. It doesn’t even have to be a word–it can be a proper noun, the letter used as a symbol, or the letter itself. The theme of the day is the letter scheduled for that day.

  1. I don’t want to be contentious, but fruit absolutely goes in beer 😉 I do however agree with your other points. I would also add to pick someone who makes you laugh every day. Weekends In Maine

  2. Don’t get married until you know everything- now those are words of wisdom – except that, no one would get married. With the failure rate of marriages, though maybe that’s not totally a bad thing.


  3. The quotes are great — the one from Lincoln, surprising. Marriage isn’t necessarily a bad topic, just a complex one. And your lessons learned nicely sum it up 🙂


  4. LOL ‘Don’t get married until you know everything.” Is that ever? Nicely done handling a tricky subject.

  5. Barbie,

    I loved the quotes and you made me laugh with your advice to not getting married until you know everything. Perhaps that’s why we see a lot of couples living together. I don’t condone such an arrangement but it is what it is. That’s between God and those people. Nuff said about that but marriage should never be entered lightly. I remember my daughter saying, if it doesn’t work out then I can divorce my husband. This was many years before she and her sister ventured out on their own. It didn’t matter what I had to say on the subject. Unfortunately, she had to learn the hard way. She and her husband have been separated for more years than they were married, still no divorce because neither can pay for it.

    I liked your no matter how you slice it cake is not pie but I’ll take a piece of both if you please and I know DH will, too. 😀

    Great post and not at all controversial. 😉

    Thanks for visiting this morning, my friend. Happy A2Zing!!

  6. You’re brave to tackle the subject of marriage. I’m in awe of you for trying. Agree about potato salad and anchovy-free pizza.

  8. Don’t put anchovies on pizza – Go for pineapple!!
    Sorry, couldn’t resist. I know a lot of people will disagree.

    Thornton Wilder may be on to something here… And still it’s what people want to do, even though half of them end up regretting their decision.
