IF THERE IS SUCH A THING AS MARRIAGE, IT TAKES PLACE LONG BEFORE THE CEREMONY: IN A CAR ON THE WAY TO THE AIRPORT; OR AS A GRAY BEDROOM FILLS WITH DAWN, ONE LOVER WATCHING THE OTHER; OR AS TWO STRANGERS STAND TOGETHER IN THE RAIN WITH NO BUS IN SIGHT, ARMS WEIGHED DOWN WITH SHOPPING BAGS. YOU DON’T KNOW THEN. BUT LATER YOU REALIZE — THAT WAS THE MOMENT. AND ALWAYS WITHOUT WORDS.
