Because we need a witness to our lives.
There's a billion people on the planet. I mean, what does any one life really mean?
But in a marriage, you're promising to care about everything-
the good things, the bad things, the terrible things, the mundane things...All of it. All the time, every day.
You're saying, "Your life will not go unnoticed, because I will notice it.
Your life will not go unwitnessed, because I will be your witness."
You can quote me on that, if you like.
The one thing I am proudest of in my whole life...is that you are happy with me.
If I couldn't... if I couldn't tell you that I was unhappy sometimes,
it was because I didn't want to risk hurting the one person I treasure most.
