  1. Love the conclusion piece! Yet, wouldn’t you agree that the love is the eye opener, and marriage is just a continuation of those eyes being opened?

    In this poem marriage does not sound like such a great thing. It’s most of what people don’t want, like the arguments, and trying to get away from children.

    I am reminded of a sonnet 130 (My Mistress Eyes) by Shakespeare, where he describes his love as being so imperfect. Yet, at the end of the poem he says, And yet, by heaven, I think my love as rare.As any she belied with false compare.”

    Though we all know someone whose marriage is still more like the love than marriage, we unfortunately know more whose marriages are like marriage as described above. Even worse, it is our marriage that is best described by the words above.
