Fellowship of Saints and Sinners

Sorry for the long delay in posts here at this intersection. Things have been a bit bungled lately on the technical end, but I’m back with this entertaining read from saint and sinner Irene. At 38, she has never married; at 38, I’ve been with my college sweetheart since 19. This article from New York Times “Modern Love” columnist Daniel Jones inserts some therapeutic lightheartedness, as well as a much-needed reality check, into discussions around marriage. Could it be, to piggyback on last week’s post, that the quest of the single and the married person is not that different in the end? If we’re “finding love” or trying to “get it back,” most of us, whether single or married, are on an ongoing quest. If the dating life is no promised land, neither is marriage. For Jones from his vantage point as a modern love columnist, it seems that “good enough” is “great.” He may be right.
