How do we know that what we know of history is really true? Is history, as we know it, all it’s cracked up to be? Laura Miller in History is bunk after all:
We like to believe that the modern vision of wedlock as a union founded in true love is hallowed and eternal. Convincing ourselves that weddings have always been wrapped in sacred and sentimental rituals is like a charm against our suspicion that marriage may not be that romantic after all.
The truth is out there. Somewhere. Maybe.
