“Two words: long engagements.
Also: meet the parents, visit them at least monthy while dating and court for a long time before ever dreaming of having sex.”
Awesome post. My future brother/sister in laws had about 200 years (combined) of marriage, with ZERO divorces. I knew my future wife would place a high value on marriage, if only to not be the spoiler.
...obviously with that record, she wasn’t born in the US (nor were her siblings).
Congratulations on finding such a family! They do exist. Mine have been in the U.S. since the 1600s, with the latest immigrant in 1845. All members of the family tree married before having children; no divorces until the 60s generation. So sad. The destruction of family and Judeo-Christian values here has been a socialist plot carried out slowly, legally and deliberately.
