I’m not sure about what you’ve heard about marriage being all”it’s cracked up to be”?
Marriage at best is a challenge? Compatibility in communication styles, financial priorities and the ability to negotiate differences in priorities/preferences takes maturity, cooperation and and equal commitment in doing so.
40 - 50% of first time marriages end in divorce! Why? Often infidelity, substance abuse, verbal, physical abuse and financial debt. This abysmal number remains high even for people who previously lived together.
Men typically fair worse after a break up than women.
So, be realistic in your relationship goals, never base everything on an online relationship only or on vacations or a small sampling of the same type of venue. Remember this person is auditioning to be your life partner and they are on their best behavior during courtship!
The Leftists have left us!
