A Matter of Opinion

When we first planned to get married and were telling people our news, some people were happy for us, others concerned.  I took their reactions as evaluations of our compatibility. When others were happy for us, I was happy for us.  When others were concerned for us, I was concerned for us.

And then one night a gruff stranger in a bar told me, "Well, you got to get married before you can get divorced," and I realized that our opinions speak much louder truths about ourselves than of those we speak about.
