The Book of Common Prayer (1559) funeral service began with these words:

"Man that is born of woman hath but a short time to live and is full of misery."

I can not help but think our divorce rate would be lower if more marriages in this day began with the same words.

Very true !

Marriage is an ascetical path to salvation, not always a rose-tinted spectacle glow of happiness, that's for sure :-)
