Question 247 of 365: Why do we get married?

As far as I can tell, it is one of the only truly respectable and
meaningful things I have done with my life. Not that it is worthy of
respect on its own, but rather that it means something to everyone.
Whether holding good or bad memories, hopeful or unfortunate
situations, it is a universal act, complete unto itself.

My older brother gets to do that act today. I am proud of him, happy
for him and flabergasted at the beauty of his version of it.

He has done this well. For that and by virtue of being my brother, I
know that his “why” has been answered perfectly.

I love you, Jake. Be married.
