Marriage contracts, as other contracts, must be signed, sealed and delivered. As an attorney I learned the kindness of strangers through this reality. Walking in a glow of victory over a contract that I did not think would ever be completed, a young man tapped me on the shoulder as I was delivering the contract from the New York City Bar Association on West 44th Street 5 blocks to a law firm still located in the Met Life building. I had told the firm, “Forget the provess server, this is a 10-minute walk I would be glad to make.” The weqather was early winter, dark and misting snow – and I listened to the young man, “Sir, I think you dropped this.”
I had been holding the contract in an FedEx waterproof envelope which unbeknownst to me had fall from where I was clutching it under my right arm until the water let the contract slide out from me and on to the street. I said to the young man, “Sir, you just saved my life.” He did change my life – had I lost that contract on that late afternoon in December the blowback would have been epic enough for the firm to send me packing.
It was delivered, yet to this day, decades later, I never told the partners who might have put me out on my own but for the kindness of this stranger.
