A Russian woman at church today told us that in Russia, the first seven years of a marriage constitute an initial stage of married life. “Seven years is like exam,” she said. The next one evidently, is at fifteen years. I will say that I’m lucky enough to be married to somebody who has made the first seven years seem pretty dang easy (but I doubt I’ve done very well in returning the favor.)
This photograph makes me think — in eight years, what will we think of pictures taken today?
