Has the pandemic put a bit of a damper on the whole wedding scene? Are more brides biding their time these days? Has hesitation hit their husbands-to-be?
Or perhaps with the usual meet/connect/start-seeing-each-other patterns upended the issue is on the front side of the whole relationship cycle. Could be that fewer people meet and connect because fewer people are interacting in those fewer places that still have people to encounter.
Or maybe it’s just that winter weddings here in the heart of our bipeninsular paradise aren’t everyone’s cup of tea?
Whatever the reason we have had just a few takers of the plunge since the new year dawned.
So here’s to those who have forged ahead with beginning their married life together. May they one day reflect that when it came time to hunker in, there was but one person they wanted to hunker in with.
And that they chose well.

“There is nothing more admirable than when two people who see eye to eye keep house as man and wife, confounding their enemies and delighting their friends.”-Homer, ‘The Odyssey’
