My Mother's Ideas about Marriage and My Own

For instance, we don't think the same about marriage. The whole idea of getting married, is where our differences start. My mother is all for it, she thinks everyone should get married. If there’s an adult over the age of twenty-five who wasn't married, my mother started trying to find somebody for them. In her eyes, nobody is a citizen, a complete person, or even a respectable human being, unless they are married.
