Crusing -Catalina or Newport?
As long as we are going completely off topic - I''d have to beg to differ with you on the made vs. started issue.
Some people get married for just the wrong reasons. Or, more importantly they never take the time to dicusss the life issues like goals and priorities whether they are financial, with kids, where you want to be five, ten, twenty years down the road etc. Not that where you want to be today is really what will happen, but if you''ve never dicussed it then you may be in for some rude awakenings.
Not that these people can''t make it work, but when you are married to someone you really shouldn''t be (e.g. you want six kids and a hhouse in the country, she grossed out by children and wants that high powered partnerhsip in a Manhattan law firm someday), the odds can be pretty much against you.
Also attitude about marriage going in is a factor. I recall hearing about two young women dicussing one of them getting married, as well as the possiblity of getting a tatoo. The comment from one of them "but the tatoo is permanent!"
