Personal Preferences Rooted in Stereotypes

Some of these preferences range from not marrying someone who has children from a previous marriage for fear of unhealthy engagements with the ex husband/ex wife, to not marrying within their own culture due fears that may be realistic but not necessarily systemic intraculturally. Please listen and share with others.

The 5 Stages of Marriage
Like people, relationships go through different developmental stages before the couple arrives at a place where they can enjoy the love shared between them. The first of the stages is the honeymoon period which describes the earliest stage of a relationship/marriage, when everything is new and exciting. Passion prevails and couples tend to overlook anything that would be potentially annoying. The newness and excitement of the relationship stimulates the production of chemicals in your body that increases energy, positive attitudes and heightened sexuality and sensuality.  It can include butterflies in your stomach, goosebumps when your new spouse calls, constant text messaging and social media activity between the two of you as well as hours spent fantasizing about your blissful future together. It's an amazing time, but it doesn't last forever…
