The Ides of Marriage: Ideals, Idle Time, and Idols

You are probably familiar with the Ides of March.  In the Roman calendar they split up each month into three sections.  Each month had the Kalends (1st of the month), Nones (5th to 7th day of the month), and the Ides (13th to 15th day of the month corresponding to the full moon).  So, each day in a month was defined in relation to one of these three days.  So, after Kalends in March, the next day would be something like VI Nones, V Nones, IV Nones until you get to Nones.  Then you would have a similar countdown...
