A few years ago, I was with a couple of friends who were having a conversation. The one was in a relationship with a man and was sharing her deep longing for him to propose and for them to finally be married. The other woman, a charismatic Filipino married two plus years, proclaimed, “Marriage is a crucifixion!”

We have a lovely neighbor named Louise who lives across the street. She’s a gray-haired, broadly smiling old lady who is frequently spotted watering her geraniums by the back porch or pulling out of her driveway in a cherry red car. She’s amiable, always waving to us when we pass by, and was particularly helpful in directing us to a great garage sale a few weeks ago.
