So true about wedding disasters. We still remember the one in the summer (so the door to the church was open), where a dog wandered in and walked down the aisle in front of the bride. That both bride and groom thought this was enchanting showed they were meant for each other (and they're still together 24 years later).

I'd say I'm naturally monogamous, paired with someone who isn't. He's very glad that I am happy with just him, of course. It's taken a long time for me to accept that maybe it's not his nature to be faithful, and he has tended out of guilt or whatever to "wander"in the most painful ways-- blaming me, "falling in love," saying he never loved me, all that. I think maybe if we'd been able to move past the monogamous ideal, he might not have been so mean, and I might not have been so damaged by it. But I have to say, if I had any choice in who I fell in love with, I would have rather fallen for someone like me, who was happy with just me. My husband has finally settled down (age, and my firm decision that I would leave next time, no hard feelings, but goodbye), and I'm feeling more certain. But like should marry like I think in this situation. It's really common in my experience for someone who isn't naturally faithful to seek out those who are because they can trust and count on them. Not really fair.

Too soon old, too late smart. :)
