    Interesting, eye-opening article, Jen. Makes me wonder when we became so “me” focused. Is it a result of so many romantic stories that fill, especially girls’, lives, even from the time we are small? We have this idea that romance is all about us, that the object of our interest should be “a perfect fit,” making us feel good and giving us “happily ever after,” and anything less than “perfect” is settling. Yes, there is the “Walmart” mentality of “exchanging” something if it’s not a perfect fit, and I wonder if cold feet are in a way a product of that. We don’t want to be part of that 50 percent divorce rate statistics, so we hesitate to marry at all, afraid of making a mistake. Would wide-spread adoption of this “marriage is for your spouse and your families” approach change anything? Perhaps. I would like to think so, anyway.
