It sometimes happens that I become a little melancholy, and think back fondly (if sadly) at my life, B.M.V. (Before Marital Vows).

I can tell you one thing, it was a simpler time. I think there is a lot of truth to the Catholic maxim that (for those who can accept it) the celibate life is a happier state than the married one. This is not to say that I do not love my wife. Hardly. But the truth of the matter is, were it not for that love, every other aspect of my life would be unbearable to a prat so self indulgent as myself. There is nothing "superior" about the married state; you are no longer your own man, everything is an obligation, you live to serve. The only consolation is love; both ways.

So are you single? Lonely? Well, don't feel so down. Call a buddy, go out, and have a drink - at least you're still allowed to! :-)
