In response to substitute marriage, written by stacia on October 04, 1997 at 01:45:40
] it's rather sad if you think about it. both are substituting each other for their lost loves. i never really thought about it until now, reading these posts. such a rather depressing thought.
Are they, though? I'm not so sure. I do not think that they are subsituting in the sense of replacing the premium one with the second best. So they couldn't marry their first love. So what? Does it directly follow that their second love must be inferior? Different, absolutely; inferior, not so!
