Dear Dr. Laura,
I was speaking to a 13-year-old recently when she said she was really excited to go to HER FIRST REAL wedding.
I asked her what a real wedding was and she replied: "oh, you know one where they don't have kids already or are pregnant and have to get married. You know one where two people just want to get married."
Keep preaching, teaching, and nagging! Real weddings used to be normal and now they are so rare that they are exciting to this generation, even in religious circles. It just shows us how far things have gone and what we have exposed our children to. It is so utterly sad to me that often I feel like I'm from another planet. I honor your resolve to continue to push us towards doing the right thing.
