Quote of the Day: On Marriage

I liked this observation on marriage made by a character in Philip Roth’s novel I Married a Communist, discussing the alleged excitement of adultery. “‘He didn’t let on to me,” says the character about his wandering brother, “because he damn well knew my thoughts on adultery. I’d already told him more times than he liked to hear,

 ‘The excitement in marriage is the fidelity. If that idea doesn’t excite you, you have no business being married.’”
