“Female friendship was one-tenth prevention and nine-tenths cleanup.”
Maggie Shipstead, Seating Arrangements

“Marriage is difficult, perhaps the most difficult thing you can ever do, besides being a parent, but I think these two fine young people are up to the challenge. Here are two steady, responsible people who, I believe, understand the dire commitment they are about to make and will choose to keep that commitment. Because it turns out to be a choice, commitment-not some done deal.

“He let go, releasing her into a life of her own making.”
