You May Now Kiss The Bride

Marriage really has come a long way. Now a days we get to meet our future lovers and get to actually know them, yet there is still a huge rate in divorce. When it comes to marriages in the United States about 50 percent of people are getting divorced and it seems so quick. Once they get married it seems the next minute the couple are in court signing the divorce papers.
            I realize that back in Greek and Roman times marriage wasn’t much about love but more of a business decision for the families. The wives were expected to take care of the household and bare children.  Where as today more women are in the working world alongside the men.  I think this is a good thing and a step forward but still don’t understand the high separation rate. When I decide to get married I know that I will be in love with the women along with be sure to learn what needs to be done to stay together forever. Another way I plan on having a good marriage is by having strong morals, communication and honesty. These elements are key to any good relationship. People these days get married with the thought of if I get married and don’t like it I can simply just get a divorce as apposed to actually working towards making things better.

            I think the marriage of couples has really changed for the better and is not as much as arranged as it used to be back when. Television shows have also shaped the way our society looks at marriage. With the elaborate weddings, dresses, ceremonies and other traditions it gets very expensive. The tradition and religious items are the way I want my wedding to be but that is not the only thing that matters when it comes to being joined with your love.

First and Foremost..

Hey guys, so I’m going to be on here for the next couple of months blogging for my english class at Coastal Carolina University. I am 18 years old and am from South Jersey. Coming down here was very far but I quickly realized that everyone is either from Jersey,  Massachusetts or New York.  At Coastal I will be studying business marketing hoping to one day open up my own watersports company. I spend most of my time down the shore either working at a few jobs on the water or spending time at the beach. Coastal is a great place to beach lovers like myself and hope to get the most out of this university. 

When it comes to being close with my family I like to think I am very close and love spending time with them.  I have an older brother who is 22 and a graduate from Clemson University.  After watching my brother just go through the college experience it shows me to get involved in as much as I can with my time here. To do this I want to join a fraternity, getting involved in intermural sports and clubs. By doing so I hope to meet tons of people and do things I have never tried. College is all about learning who you are in these next four years.

            As to what sports teams I enjoy watching it easily is the Philadelphia Phillies and Eagles. Growing up in Phila I love going to different sporting events and going into the city.
