The Nature of Marriage

In the latest Books & Culture, Dennis Okholm has a good review of Kathleen Norris’s recent book–Acedia & Me: A Marriage, Monks, and a Writer’s Life, “The very nature of marriage means saying yes before you know what it will cost.  You may say the ‘I do’ of the wedding ritual in all sincerity, but it is the testing of that vow over time that makes you married.”
