By How Many Doors Must You Enter Paradise?
Here’s an unusual wake up call about the wonders of marriage.
To complain that I could only be married once was like complaining that I had only been born once. It was incommensurate with the terrible excitement of which one was talking. It showed not an exaggerated sensibility to sex but a curious insensibility to it. A man is a fool who complains that he cannot enter Eden by five gates at once. Polygamy is a lack of the realization of sex; it’s like a man plucking five pears in mere absence of mind. (G. K. Chesterton, Orthodoxy, 103)
