Marriage: a ceremony in which rings are put on the finger of the lady and through the nose of the gentleman.
I would like it to be known that I have decided not to marry Group Capt. Peter Townsend. Mindful of the church’s teaching that Christian marriage is indissoluble, and conscious of my duty to the Commonwealth, I have resolved to put these considerations before any others.
So far, 44 States, or 88 percent of the States, have enacted laws providing that marriage shall consist of a union between a man and a woman. Only 75 percent of the States are required to approve a constitutional amendment.
The cultural expectation should be if there’s infidelity, the marriage is more important than fidelity.
