First Comes Marriage (Completed & Editing)
“I think that most marriages start with love, but that isn’t what holds it together. You know that old saying, “First comes love, then come marriage, then comes a baby in a baby carriage?” I think that is what happens. People fall in love so they get married. Once they are married, the marriage and the things like a house and children are what keep it together.”
Mel and Jake have never had a normal relationship. She doesn't believe in love and he is in love with her. They reversed the rhyme and started with, "First comes marriage." This leads to drama and the need for a counselor that can fix them. Sitting down, and giving their own perspectives on the relationship, Mel and Jake are forced to confront things they have tried to avoid. Love then marriage, or marriage and then love? Does it matter which comes first?
