Wedding planners know the strongest marriages are those where the wedding ceremony and reception were tricky. Indeed, the word most used is “dysfunctional”.
Where things are delayed because the best man and the sister of the bride decide to have unscheduled pre-ceremony rumpty tumpty, or where father-in-law 1 punches father-in-law 2 over a daughter’s frock, the happy couple are likely to weather the storms of life.
Freda and I remain together, probably because she tossed the ring into the piano in a fit of pique after I trod on her waltzing toes for the third time.
I love her still.
