"I don't believe in marriage.

- No, I really don't.

Let me be clear about that.

I think at worst
it's a hostile political act,

a way for small-minded men
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 truly miserable they're
about to make each other.



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.

To Diego and Frida."
