Marriage is Romantic!

dreamstimefree_238290Hey, all! Jennifer here.

Did you know it’s National Marriage Week this week?

Yep. And the National Marriage Week website says this:

Marriage works. It makes people happier, live longer, and build more economic security. Children with married parents perform better in school. Click here for new research on “Why Marriage Matters: Thirty Conclusions from Social Science.”

Marriage breakdown is costly to our kids and to society at large. Divorce and unwed childbearing cost the U.S. taxpayers a whopping $112 billion annually. In these economic challenging times, building stronger marriages helps build a stronger nation.

Cool, huh?

As romance writers, our books always end in a happily ever after and 9 times out of 10 that’s going to include a wedding or proposal of marriage.

WHY? Because it definitely signifies a lifelong commitment our characters are making to one another. True Romance.

    Excellent post, Jennifer! I agree. What could be better than spending your life with the one you love, very romantic. 🙂

  2. I think there is something very sexy about making a commitment to one person. It is romantic and the fact that it’s good for you is a pretty nice plus.
