Hey all, I could use the collective wisdom of Groupthink! I have picked out a passage from one of my favorite books that I would like an actress friend to read at my wedding this May. Religion is not at all involved in the ceremony, so the Bible is not an option, and I wanted to pick something about marriage from one of my favorite writers... If you don't recognize this, I'll say who it is in the comments! Just want to see without the context if y'all think it's appropriate.
"How can I begin to tell you about [my wife]? She fills my horizon, she is the great fact of my life, she is the love of my life, she saved me from the fate of living out my life alone, which is where I seemed to be heading… I sensed from the first [she] was the woman I would marry, and I know after twenty years that my feelings were true. She has been with me in sickness and in health, certainly far more sickness than we could have anticipated. I will be with her, strengthened by her example. She continues to make my life possible, and her presence fills me with love and a deep security. That's what a marriage is for. Now I know."
