http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Courtship

"During courtship, a couple get to know each other and decide if there will be an engagement or other such agreement."

This statement has lost meaning these days. People hook up just for money and other material benefits then break up simply because they never underwent this important period in the course ot their relationship.

What are your thoughts on this sad matter..

They left out the part about testing each others sexual compatability.....which is HUGE in a relationship, and can make or break it.

Judged clueless, nuts and "disagree"

Is that why America leads the globe in rates of Divorce and failed marriages?

..... just asking :)

And I am not picking on America, this is a serious issue!

You should hook up with Patricia "You can call me Pat"
You two would make a perfect couple.

Oh wait, you already are hooked up with her.

Deal with your own serious issues before trying to go global.

You are indeed one of the biggest US bashers on Topix.

Dumb. Why don't you tell me. Why are there so many failed relationships and marriages in the US? Why? I know people skip courtship over there. I know what I'm talking about!

You don't know what you are talking about, you have no facts or figures and nothing but an ad hoc argument and now you wish me to educate you on courtship statistics from around the world...

go get some information, formulate a hypothesis about what it is you are trying to say and bring it to these forums. Without doing that you sound like a complete idiot with a very full agenda..

Or..

Just post the word 'Dumb' again...

Yet Africans don't divorce as much as you Americans do. I wonder why. A successful courtship lasts at least 2 years! 2 years. How many of you Americans wait that long? You just tie the Knot in 2 days! But you refuse to learn from others and bury your heads in the sand. I think I should write a book or come to America and lecture you people about the importance of courtship. You think I am happy knowing the number of divorce cases in the US? No.
