I was watching the movie “Shall We Dance” and the following piece of conversation that Susan Sarandon says sounded quite interesting to me…
Susan: Why is it, do you think, that people get married?
Guy: That’s interesting. Because I would’ve taken you for a romantic. Why, then?
Susan: Because we need a witness to our lives… There’s a billion people on the planet. I mean, what does any one life really mean? But in a marriage, your’re promising to care about everything – the good things, the bad things, the terrible things, the mundane things…All of it. All the time, every day. You’re saying, “Your life will not go unnoticed, because I will notice it. Your life will not go unwitnessed, because I will be your witness”
