I agree, in theory. I definitely think it would have been a much easier thing to do in decades past. I know my grandparents married right out of high school and stayed madly in love until the day my grandfather died of Alzheimer's disease 8 years ago; my grandma even needed to go on Prozac the loss was so devastating. I just think today it is much different. Our culture, society and values have changed greatly in the past century, and I would say it hasn't been a change that's necessarily in favor of the married life.
