Re: Would you tell your sons to get married?
I asked my son if he'd really thought it through and was sure, but did not encourage or dissuade him. He saw my first marriage - and my second - so knows what can go wrong or right. Besides, they've lived together for years already, so have an excellent idea about what to expect. They also seem very well suited to each other, and are both highly educated and have excellent careers, so the risk factors are low and the positive factors are high.
Love is an ideal thing; marriage is a real thing; a confusion of the real with the ideal never goes unpunished. - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
CELIBACY IS NOT HEREDITARY.
