Hey there, and welcome back to Clued In!
Why are cryptic puzzles are so much fun? Well, they give your brain a workout. Also, they make you think in metaphors and understand how neatly language sums up the otherwise chaotic jumble that is life. Thinking in metaphors is a wonderful feeling. You should try it, if you aren’t already in the habit of doing it. It makes you understand how something can be different and yet the same. A very spiritual thing, if you ask me.
But never mind that. Here’s a nice short clue that should be fun to work out!
Don’t worry about the words ‘in a’. That’s just a way to link the definition to the wordplay. Ideally, there shouldn’t be any in a cryptic clue. And even if there are, they should fit in perfectly without sticking out. But hey, which marriage is perfect?
