“Love and Marriage, Love and Marriage, goes together like a horse and carriage”, at least that’s what the song says.  You know as well as I do that isn’t always the reality.  Sometimes the horse doesn’t want to pull the carriage, and sometimes the carriage doesn’t want to be pulled.   For the last seven […]
