Дорогие невесты, советую Вам вступать в брак С ОТКРЫТЫМИ ГЛАЗАМИ. Если вы уверены, что семья должна строиться на большой любви, то вынуждена Вас разочаровать – статистика ратует в пользу брака по расчету. Любовь слепа, и когда она проходит (а через 10-15 лет от страсти не остается и следа), супруги прозревают и нередко приходят в ужас от сделанного в юности выбора. Если же вы вступаете в брак с открытыми глазами, понимая, что этот человек будет хорошим мужем и отцом, тогда у Вас больше шансов обрести идеального супруга и прочную семейную любовь.
