Kathryn: I agree people should spend more time getting to know each other and their values, etc., instead of hurrying into marriage.

I've known some who hurried into marriage with DIVORCE as the "quick solution" if things didn't work out as to their expectations. I believe that attitude is plain selfish and a lack of maturity.

Although no marriage is exempt of problems, many can be avoided if we took the time to get to know each other before the I DO'S.
