An Honorable Estate: Where did that come from?

There are many writers who have written about marriage with great eloquence. But the passage that speaks to me the most, the one that plays over, and over, (and over) in my mind is this one.

(Forward to 1:20 if you’re not as big of a
Pride and Prejudice fan as I am, and if you’re really not a P&P fan you can end at 2:46.)

It is also the inspiration for the title of this blog. Later posts will expound on this theme, but I wanted this blog to encompass not just the preparations for a wedding, but to delve into the ideas relating to marriage and living a life that is as full and blessed as God intended it to be.

Any thoughts, recommendations, questions, or advice is welcome. I look forward to hearing from you!

P.S. Just to clarify, the words spoken by the vicar are not the creation of Jane Austen.  They come from the Book of Common Prayer.
