On Thu, 30 Sep 2004 21:11:31 GMT, rumours say that Anna Martelli
Ravenscroft <anna at aleax.it> might have written:

I see marriage has *its* advantages...  :)

Actually, my post was a rather silly pun (think "It" by Stephen King),
and that is the reason I inserted a smiley.  I know that Alex was
correct.  It's my fault that I didn't make myself absolutely clear I was
joking (I firmly believe that the speaker/writer has the responsibility
to make themselves understood assuming good intentions from the side of
the audience --and good intentions are the norm here on clpy :).

Thanks for taking the time to reply, though!
