You would not ask it if you had been married…

“Do you not know how it is with love?  First, comes delight: then pain: then fruit.  And then there is joy but that is different again form the first delight.  And mortal lovers must not try to remain at the first step: for lasting passion is the dream of a harlot and from ti we wake in despair.  You must not try to keep the raptures: they have done their work.  Manna kept, is worms.  But you are full of sleep and we had better talk no more.”

~ The hermit, The Pilgrim’s Regress, Lewis.
