I just had the wonderful opportunity to participate in a group video chat on HuffPost Live. The topic was getting married young, the dynamics of our generation and what it takes to sustain a relationship long-term.
I was the youngest person of the bunch (and most of the readers of this blog know my perspective on marriage). In addition to me, there was a researcher who has spoken with people who have been married for decades, a young woman who was both married and divorced in her 20s and a woman who has been married for 43 years.
Each of my fellow participants had great perspectives. It was a real honor to talk with them — and I think the resulting discussion turned out wonderfully. Please take a look at the video and share your thoughts!
