Time Travel Tuesdays - Marriage Now or Later

Welcome to another installment of Time Travel Tuesdays! Today I have for you a 1951 page of advice on marriage from the original romance title, Young Romance! Just click to enlarge!

Young Romance #38
(vol. 5, no. 2)
(October 1951)

The advice is a little surprising given that today we are always given the impression that women of the '50s were encouraged to marry young and forgo personal achievements and developments. Though in the end Ms. Hale recommends that marriage is the "only normal way of living,"she still advocates that the inquiring reader take time to find herself and take a "fling at freedom."

  1. As everything in life that is worth having or doing marriage is no exception. Delayed gratification by individuals in order to become more mature,more fully developed in their chosen career path, more succesful and more happy is still a virtue.
    We live in a world of instant reward and gratification, we also live in a world of high divorce rates and a world where life itself is cheap.
    This old advice is still good advice. Theodore Morrison Homa MD author Archimedes'Claw
