Marriage is Definitely Not Obsolete

I invite you to an internet radio discussion tonight, November 23, 2010, at 8 pm Eastern, 5 pm Pacific, about whether or not marriage is obsolete.

Our host is Dr. Veronica Anderson, on her show, Wellness for the Real World.

In a recent Time/Pew study of American adults, 39% said marriage is obsolete.

I think they are wrong.

Tune in. Speak up. Or listen to the recording later. This topic is critically important to our nation's future.


I agree with you, Patty. Marriage is not obsolete. I have been married 62 years, 2 months, 18 days, 14 hours, and 43 minutes. It has been rough; we have considered divorce.

But now I would not give up that shared history and the decades of deep love and physical intimacy for anything. Our marriage is a "world of our own" and we guard and treasure it highly.

Bravo, Lois! You two must be doing something very right. So glad you have written about it, so we can learn from the two of you.

I heard a great quote from someone in Hollywood, when asked how his celebrity marriage had lasted so long. He answered, "We never both wanted a divorce on the same day."

Getting past those tough days is so important. Time deepens a marriage and makes it so much richer.
