CHAPTER FOURTEEN

`No, darling, that's the Bargello. The Louvre - or am I thinking of the Rialto?' And though it was certainly of the Rialto that they were thinking when they left the Ivy, and of the film which everybody said was so good, it was at the Giant Pyramid, as likely as not, that they passed the evening.
In the company of two-dimensional husbands and wives. Which surprises you most, Reginald had asked Coral Bell, that so many marriages are successes, or that so many are failures? The surprising thing, surely, was that so many were successes. Do we ever stop fouling the domestic nest? If a writer is to be serious about married life, there is only one way for him to be serious; the marriage must be a tragic failure; sordid, unlovely; a vulgarity of body, mind or spirit. If a writer is to be humorous about married life, there is only one way for him to be humorous; the marriage must be a comic failure; but still sordid, still unlovely, vulgarity holding both its sides. Tragedy, comedy? A man loses his faith, his honour, his loved one, or he loses his hat; he is a theme for tragedy or comedy; but not if faith and honour and the loved one are never kept, not if all the world is mislaying its hat. Surely, thought Reginald, even in a film there should be a suggestion that marriage might be a lovely thing, that here was a beauty worth striving for, even if so many missed it.
That couple in front of us. Perhaps they have been holding hands for two years, watching a film like this once every week - a hundred films like this, and now they are to be married l How easy it makes it for them! How well-remembered, how right, the infelicities of marriage will seem! And if the children of their sordid house should fail to bring them honour, how inevitable
