Married, a cultural introduction

Getting to know the word from all angles...

Michal's mulling over the potential of enhancing his lavish Fiction Corpus with a treatise on classic science fiction; cites fatigueDictionary icon

I believe in the possibility of upholding English as a common language for the world. I don't trust in the regular routine with which the English tongue is taught.Pointer

Improving a person's expertness with a language isn't like bringing about a smoother toilet paper. A language - a living tongue - is not just an instrument that you can teach yourself to employ with a greater amount of precision. A shared language cannot be parted from the prevailing culture of a recognized nation of which it is a description. A language isn't recited; it happens - and keeps happening as long as a circle of people keeps using it.

Teaching a man to recite English is to strip him of its cultural context. A capable teacher must prepare a plan for introducing it; the prudent pupil goes out to seek it.

A dictionary can be an influential tool. The best dictionaries describe words on the basis of a specific corpus, a set of writing of various scope and consistency. A corpus could include anything from a book about literature to a collection of book reviews. I suffered many a sleepless night creating my "lavish" Fiction Corpus to form a different kind of dictionary based on the ability of one man to tell a story in myriad forms. It is a labor of love and listening.

I have framed a million words and I have separated them, reformulating them - not just to teach English vocabulary but to defend the human spirit, and to propel that soul or spirit not just to recite but to happen.

Help End Bullying With ArtOne of Margo's pictures from our trip across Europe.

Strength and dignity are her clothing...

Proverbs 31:25

Author's Note: I have been enjoined from sharing the details of my true romance adventure until such time that the other party is prepared to present her perspective on the affair arrangement...Pointer

One week after arriving in Europe, I met a woman in the sauna on the ground floor of the large villa she shared with her ex-husband. Four weeks later she was sharing a small rain-soaked tent with me in Vienna, our little gas-fired stove barely capable of boiling a cup of water. It wasn't until we reached Croatia that we decided to invest in a large electric kettle. It was quite the luxury and it made me very happy.

I had come to Europe to experience European naturism, a movement whose philosophy matched my aesthetic of body acceptance and whose organizational structure and leadership I had thought almost exclusively restricted to the western half of the continent. I was shocked to learn that naturism had an official home in Poland, a country not especially known for its liberal culture. I was less shocked to discover that the home was owned by a Dutchman, but even more shocked to learn that it had been largely built by Margo.

I was American. Freshly arrived in Europe and the new owner of a '97 Ford Escort made in Germany. The only thing I had to complain about was the fact that the owner's manual was in German. She was from Poland, and a German-language owner's manual for a car bought in Poland wasn't the only thing she had to complain about. Something as small as that didn't even register.

6,000 miles. One car. One tent. We started learning how to listen. We started learning how to open up. We started cooperating. Even when we were angry, even when it was so difficult that it didn't seem like it would turn out well, we stuck it out. We completed the trip and we came back happy. We had beaten the devil on the road. Back home more devils were waiting to abuse us. More anger. More fear. More sadness. This time we were prepared. This time we had each other and we could harken back to the joy and the trust and the suprise that 6,000 miles had created. We could remember what it was like to live in one tent.

THE DISAPPEARING WOMAN, THE DISAPPEARING MAN...Pointer

a collection of modern art prints and posters

During our trip across Europe, Margo very bravely opened up to me and to the camera. It was a difficult thing to do considering the scars that she carries. I wanted to share with the world her often joyful, often sad, often angry but always liberating experience except that the Internet is full of pictures of naked women and men and full of trolls who abuse them.

I realized that what I really need to point out is not the openness that Margo and I cultivated between ourselves, but the darkness that continues to surround us. When I censor nudity, I do so in a way that does not compromise the integrity of the human body. In censoring the photographs that Margo and I took during our trip, I was quick to notice that in those pictures where Margo was at her most open, at her most unguarded and most relaxed, in a word, when she was herself and basking in the sun I was forced to blacken her completely.

Why does our society drive people into darkness? Why can we not accept ourselves as we are? Why can we not accept our bodies? Have we truly become eunuchs? Or are we capable of defying the sickness that pits us against each other? Together we could conquer the devils that abuse us.

Whether you enjoy being nude or not, whether you've been photographed nude or not, but especially if, for you, like for Margo, it's something you never thought you would do, consider submitting your own photograph to be published in a censored manner as a form of protest against the ubiquitous presence of the human body on the internet, naked or not, that is published and duplicated ad infinitum without context and without regard for the identity or the needs of the individual being depicted.

Michal's Dictionary:
Understanding the word Married

A word can represent many things. First and foremost it represents a type of gesture. A specific way of speaking. A specific way of inscribing a mark. A specific way of moving your hand. To know one of these kinds of gestures is to know how to pronounce the word married in some kind of way.

If you want to communicate an idea using the word married, you will need to know what other people are made to think when you make the gesture. You will never have complete awareness of or control over the associations or identities that are invoked by a set of words, but you can know what was and what is a single word's jointly accepted definition, at least for a given place, thereby tracing a direction which will help you to understand what kinds of associations and identities are driving its use.

By using the word yourself, you enter into a long-standing albeit oftentimes unconscious debate over its definition, forever entangling yourself into the history of its use. The way you use it, and which other words you use it with carries weight.

The more you know about where the word married is located in the fabric of a language, the better you will be at exploiting its cultural power.

Usage of Married in The Gospel of Jesus H.

A picture of the planet Mars

An experimental science fiction Christology that makes Jesus the hard boiled narrator of his own early years on a bizarro earth made dark by volcanic ash and informally ruled by a man from Mars who sells bottled air.

"St. Hedwig," said Jesus, "was German. When she married Duke Henry the First of Silesia, she brought with her German culture. Duke Henry the First happened to be half-German. His mother was German, and since his wife was also German, he seemed pretty keen on German things. Like you, he was a half-breed."

Verse 383 from the chapter called Security

"She's an alcoholic," she said. "People have seen her drunk all the time - and yet, they don't understand how bad it is. It's really bad. When I would come home, I would find her lying on the stairs, passed out, soaked in her own urine. It's disgusting - and I'm the one who has to clean it up. My father doesn't do it. I'm the one who has to do it. 'Zoe, Zoe, help your mother.' He's never been a father to me. The only time he needs me is when Momma's found herself in some kind of trouble - when she's in public: when she takes the dog out 'for a walk' and comes back drunk. She hides bottles of liquor in the bushes. Why? Because I would always empty them out and fill them with water. 'Please, Momma, don't drink' - but she doesn't listen. She only tells me never to get married. She's mad at my father for having made her have children - can you believe that? She tells me that she never wanted to have children. I'm her daughter for crying out loud. I don't want to hear that: it's depressing. My father forced her to have me? Alright: maybe - if he raped her. But did he force her to abandon music? I don't think so. I think she chose that. I think she regrets it now - that's what it is. My father's only her excuse. She drives him insane. I think he's turning alcoholic too. He beats her sometimes - when he's mad. I used to cry, but now I think she deserves it. She's a terrible mother.

Verse 1004 from the chapter called Bohemia

"Their children are supposed to be married," said Jesus.

Verse 844 from the chapter called Security

Because the state held a controlling interest in the country's largest petroleum dealer, the ruling government (the Prime Minister and his colleagues), were ultimately in control of its actions. When the chairman of its board was about to sign a certain agreement with a certain company registered in Cyprus (a known tax haven) and controlled by two naturalized Polish citizens, the Office of the Protection of the State arrested him before he could do it. It turned out the two naturalized Polish citizens were two Ukrainians who claimed to be former musicians, who had married Polish wives, and who had founded their company with five thousand dollars in start-up capital, a company which now monopolized Poland's national oil supplies because the ruling party (the party of the Prime Minister and the President) had appointed a new chairman of the board who immediately signed the agreement that the former chairman of the board had been prevented from doing. It was all very, very suspicious.

Verse 308 from the chapter called Adolescence

On top of all that, the single largest privately-held stake in Poland's largest petroleum dealer was owned by Krupnik Holding, SA. The single largest shareholder in Krupnik Holding, SA was, of course, Leonard Cohen-Krupnik, the richest man in Poland and father of Sacha Cohen-Krupnik, his eldest son, who was engaged to be married to Zoe Guderian, only child (by his second wife [his first wife being divorced and presumed dead]) of the richest man on the planet, Hitler Panzer-Tank the Third, who was organizing a private military expedition to Mars, his home, which he hadn't seen since before the Martian Revolution, in which most of his family was presumed to have been killed. It was all that complicated.

Usage of Married in Sex for Children

A drawing of a man between a woman's legs in front of another man in a hospital bed

A literature book narrated by a pair of siblings on either side of the Atlantic whose profoundly weird sexual experiences pose a serious challenge to their traditional understanding of mathematicians, marriage, gay young men and God.

This whole situation lies somewhere between ridiculous and absurd. The idea that Albert would crash at your dingy, little bachelor pad: that is a contradictory mixture of both (absurdity and ridiculousness), which makes the proposition impossible. It is a law of human nature that we can only ridicule the things we tolerate, and the absurd is always intolerable, much like your apartment. Last time I checked, your address was not in Albany, which, the guidebook assures me, is the premier address for bachelors of all ages. It took seventy-five years before married men were allowed, and even then they couldn't bring their wives. But of course, things have changed since the nineteenth century, and, as much as a bachelor like you might regret this, women are allowed to own their own houses.

– Title 2, Regarding the Romaniac, Part 1, Section 11, Guidebooks, Paragraph 4

But Macy was shaking his head: he said there were still plenty of situations where such desperation would be necessary. I agreed, of course, and I began telling him the story of our second cousin, Stefan, who, as you know, sort of ran off to get married. "He went to school in Prague," I told him, "and he met someone there - a beautiful woman.

– Title 2, Regarding the Romaniac, Part 1, Section 13, Bringing Up a Delicate Subject, Paragraph 5, Clauses 1-3

BERT: Oh, he was crazy, just crazy - lived out of a bag: did nothing but travel from house to house visiting mathematicians. I believe his motto was something like, 'another roof, another proof.' But he said a lot of funny things. His favorite word was 'fascist.' He applied it to anything that annoyed him. And he would call everything fascist, indiscriminately, because anything could annoy him - except math. That's what he lived for: mathematics and nothing else. He would spend seventeen hours a day on math - didn't care about food, sex, family, nothing. Sexual pleasure annoyed him. And do you know what he called you if you were married?

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 1, The First Day, Part 1, Victory & Calendar Reform, Section 8, Financial Instruments, Paragraph 46

In that other document - that infamous one - among the many privileges of marriage that are listed as concrete reasons for having the right to marry, there is listed the exclusive marital benefit that bestows "presumptions of legitimacy and parentage of children born to a married couple." Now how are we to extend that privilege to couples for whom such things are impossible? There is indeed "one unbridgeable difference" between those couples and traditional married couples.

– Title 2, Regarding the Romaniac, Part 1, Section 18, The Role of the Judicious Mind, Paragraph 6, Clauses 1-2

I wondered how many children she had suckled. She had a nice waist - with tremendous hips. The woman must have borne many children. I wondered if she were married. I wondered if she were loved. I imagined how sweetly I could make love to her. She was incredibly sexy with those big, bubbly breasts, with her exquisite fleshiness.

Bullets whizzing by a statue of Nikola Tesla

The passenger turned. I recognized him. It was my friend, Nike. He stared at me with wide eyes. It was a challenge. I sank into my seat. The eyes stayed fixed above, as if I had only been blocking their view. The driver turned. It was the man Nike introduced to me as Luka, the Romanian who married his cousin. They stared for a moment. Together, they faced forward.

"Last time I was here," said Nike, "the road was empty. The Reine was on her last legs."

A real play. With drama in it. Talk fast. It takes two hours. Set in a guest house. In a small community. After a murder. Lots of suspicion. The characters learn to listen to each other. It's funny.

LESBIAN: Mind your own business.

FLETCHER: This is my business.

MS. JACKSON: Stop it: both of you.

FLETCHER: The way you two carry on: it makes me sick.

LESBIAN: You think you're any better. You lost your virginity to a married woman.

FLETCHER: How did you know that?

LESBIAN: She told me.

FLETCHER: You told him? How did you know?

MS. JACKSON: Your father-

FLETCHER: My father!

FLETCHER: It makes me jealous.

ALICE: Why should you be jealous? By the sound of things, you get plenty of action.

FLETCHER: What do you mean?

ALICE: Didn't you say a pair of nine-year-olds caught you kissing a married woman?

FLETCHER: That was nothing. There have been some other things.

ALICE: Such as?

– ACT I, lines 636-641

LESBIAN: You are married.

MS. JACKSON: According to whom?

LESBIAN: The law and the church.

MS. JACKSON: My husband seldom goes to church and has nothing but contempt for the law.

LESBIAN: What about you, Ms. Jackson? Do you go to church?

MS. JACKSON: Only on Sundays.

LESBIAN: What about the law?

MS. JACKSON: They say she's blind.

LESBIAN: Is today Sunday?

MS. JACKSON: Today must be Friday.

GREY GOOSE: Open your eyes. Do you know what I was trying to do here? Look at this place. It's a god-damn mess.

FLETCHER: You were only trying to help.

GREY GOOSE: I wasn't. I was trying to please Kokomo. That dishwasher wasn't a gift for your mother. It was a gift for her.

FLETCHER: Don't expect me to believe Mother's story that all this time you've been chasing after the cook.

GREY GOOSE: Things changed the moment your mother convinced herself that she's falling in love with that Kiwi.

FLETCHER: Lesbian is not going to stay here. I doubt Mother would just pack up and leave. All we have to do is be patient. We have to ride this thing out without losing our heads and without letting anybody catch the two of them going at it - whatever the hell it is they do together, which can't be much. They probably just kiss and talk about running off to get married in Spain. Regardless, we can't afford to take any chances - not with our reputation as low as it is.

GREY GOOSE: I argued with her today - not because it was necessary - because I desired it. I shouted what I should never murmur without her permission.

FLETCHER: What are you talking about?

GREY GOOSE: I called her a whore - not because I was roping Luke -because she turned me on. It made me angry to feel so helpless. I argued with Kokomo so that I could be close to her: so that I could breathe in her scent. That's all this stupid dishwasher business was about. Did I say it was a gift? It wasn't a gift. It was a ploy.

FLETCHER: Stay away from her.

– ACT I, lines 1237-1246

FLETCHER: I lost my virginity to a married woman. Her husband was abroad - had been for several months. She did plan on joining him, but she loved sex - she admitted it - more than she loved her husband. Then again, I didn't really know the man. Maybe he was the same way. Maybe he was a scoundrel. Some women are just crazy. I was doing work on her balcony at the time. She would undress in front of me through the window. She even let me watch her masturbate. I was around eighteen years old. She was forty. I had no idea what to do. I couldn't do anything, anyway. I was surrounded by my crewmates. When we finished, we packed up and we left. I didn't see her for several weeks. In due course, we bumped into each other at one of the local pubs. She asked me how I was doing. I told her I was fine. I bought her a few drinks. She asked me to take her home. I did. On her front porch, as she was removing her keys from her pocket, she dropped something.

ALICE: A condom.

FLETCHER: How did you know?

ALICE: I guessed.

FLETCHER: Is that something you've done?

ALICE: I've never done it. I assume, if you want to get your point across, that's the most powerful way.

FLETCHER: It's true. I couldn't help myself. I had to go up to her room.

ALICE: Did you like it?

FLETCHER: I loved it - as it was happening. When we were finished, I felt as dirty as a pig. She wanted me to come every Wednesday afternoon like clockwork.

ALICE: Did you?

Usage of Married in Miscellaneous Dingbats

The title of the book at the end of a string of miscellaneous dingbats

A story book full of short fiction stories. An interesting bedtime mystery. A fairy tale. Science fiction romance. Adult life. Uninspiring gay fiction. Horror.

"Everybody held their breath. They didn't know what I was going to say. They thought I might say no. Albert was so much older than me. My mother whispered in my ear, 'He is crazy. You know that.' It didn't matter. I decided a long time ago. I stood up. I tried not to smile. It didn't last long. I said, 'Yes.' It happened that very morning. We were married on Christmas Day."

"Happy Anniversary," I said. "It's almost here."

– from “St. Andrew's Eve,” a story of love that might calm one's sense of distaste depending on your outlook

"It's better to have loved and lost than never to have loved," said Jeff. "That's why I fall for married women. I know they'll get lost eventually."

– from “A Magnum Condom,” a bedtime story to teach children about real life that may or may not work

I learned later that the headman of the village had asked that I be replaced. He had claimed to the Ministry that I was crazy. That I talked to myself. That all the parents in the village were afraid to leave their children with me. I proved him wrong. If not for Putin and my three pupils, I would've been packing my bags for Moscow that very weekend. I would have lived in the village for all of two weeks instead of almost twenty years. I would never have stayed to teach a community of children how to grow up. I would never have married a local Russian girl. I would never have become the village headman. I would never have run for mayor.

– from “A Black Man in Moscow,” an inspirational story that represents something true, though the details are not factual

Grandmother laughed. "I married his son. He was named after his father. His face came from somewhere else - most people suspected the village headman. I liked your Grandfather very much growing up. He was a good boy. I made sure he was the one I saw."

"How did you do it?" I asked. "Did you trick him into climbing onto the roof?"

– from “St. Andrew's Eve,” a story of love that may ease one's fears depending on your outlook

The most idiotic actress in the history of cinema has got to be my mother. She was born to a family of Ukrainian farmers living in Romania. Or so I thought. It turned out it was the other country. The one whose name is always different. Moldavia. Moldova. Bessarabia. It doesn't matter. She married some kind of commie who ended up defecting to London. This was not my father.
