“…anyone that knows Spain will be aware of the frequency of the marriage in which the wife is deeply pious and the husband is irreligious. This is indeed a fairly normal situation. The man’s sense of self-esteem conflicts sharply with the teachings of the Church, especially in the sexual field, while he is irritated by its many small, fussy rules and regulations, which treat him, he feels, as though he were a child.” – Gerald Brennan – ‘South From Granada’
Once again it rained heavily in the night but by morning it had cleared when I went out into the street to check the weather. There were blue skies again and there was a church bell ringing and calling people to service and as I wandered aimlessly about checking the breakfast options a crowd of nuns waddled across San Fernando Square on their way to the cathedral a bit like a flock of penguins.
