The Vows are Everything

When asked if she would ever marry, Audrey Hepburn responded, “If I get married, I want to be very married.” Strictly speaking, this isn’t possible.

There’s no difference between dead and very dead, and there is no spectrum spanning from “sort of married” to “moderately married” to “very married.” But sometimes that which is not technically possible is nevertheless profoundly true.

I love Hepburn’s words because they are precisely how I see my own marriage. It isn’t a perfect marriage, but we are nevertheless very married.

I wouldn’t want it any other way.
