Somewhere, Jane Austen is weeping

And I don't feel too good myself, after reading this dictum on marriage from Sandra Tsing Loh in The Atlantic:

Here’s my final piece of advice: avoid marriage—or you too may suffer the emotional pain, the humiliation, and the logistical difficulty, not to mention the expense, of breaking up a long-term union at midlife for something as demonstrably fleeting as love.

But all is not (yet) lost. If you need a palate cleanser after that bitter tale of individualism and entitlement run amok, try a very different take on marriage, here and here. There are areas where I disagree with Andrew Klavan, but you have to give him this: He loves his wife and plans to go right on doing so.

I married a princess over 32 years ago, and she turned into a queen. I cannot wait to see her every day, and she feels the same way about me. I'm convinced that God gave this marriage to us, and we do our best to honor him in it. One other thing: we don't bad-mouth each other. At all. Never. 'Nuff said.
