Question by Kathleen: what are the differences between marriage in the 1950s and marriage today?
i'm doing a research paper on the changes in the trends in marriage from the 1950s to today. im trying to show how the economic and legal aspects of the country affect the rate of marriage and how marriage is defined. so please if you can tell me any differences in marriage then and marriage now, like the ages people got married, how long they stay together, why they get/got married, how they define/defined marriage anything of the sorts it would be GREATLY appreciated

Part of it is the stigma of divorce has been diminished greatly since the 50s.

Minister's advice to young couple contemplating marriage is "watch out for the boing!" You'll get a kick out of this is a 1950 marriage preparation film. Hilarious at times but if you are getting married will give you some things to think about.
