verdades? só se for na arte

I don't believe in marriage. I really don't. Let me be clear about it. I think at worst it's a hostile political act. A way for small-minded man to keep women in the house and out of the way, wrapped up in the guise of tradition and conservative religious nonsense. At best, it's a happy delusion these two people who truly love each other and have no idea how miserable they're about to make each other. But, when two people know that, and they decide with eyes wide open to face each other and get married anyway, then I don't think it's conservative or delusional. I think it's radical and courageous and very romantic. Cheers to Frida and Diego.
