What the world really needs is more love and less paperwork.
— Pearl Bailey (United States singer 1918-1990)
One teacher said, paperwork in this sentence meant marriage certificate. But I’m not sure about it.
I checked on dictionaries and find that the word means
routine work involving documents such as forms, records, or letters.
To my understanding, it doesn’t necessarily mean “marriage certificate”.
I searched on internet, but can’t find a certain answer. Therefore I put this question here.
Does it mean marriage certificate in this sentence? If not what does it mean?
Thanks in advance!
