I think weddings and the birth of a child might be the best things in life. I am speaking as an observer, of course, as I am not married nor do I have any children. But I can only imagine that the joy felt at weddings and when new life enters the world at least quadruples when you’re directly involved, so I’m going to assume they’re still the best things ever.
On a more depressing note, divorce (sometimes) and death might be the saddest things we have in society. Two sad endings that bring conclusion to something that began with so much joy. But, for whatever reason or reasons, the person’s life had to end and the couple was better off without one another, a thought unimaginable when they gazed into each other’s eyes however many years ago on their wedding day.
I didn’t write about weddings, divorce or babies being born last weekend. That leaves death.
