This incredibly sweet story illustrates one of the reasons we champion marriage here at Wisconsin Family Council. Marriage is a wonderful good for people and for society. The Dobb’s story, and the stories of millions of couples like them, underscore the need our society has for loving, strong marriages.
The Dobbs’ romance may not be the stuff of Shakespeare, legends or tabloids. But the strength of bonds like theirs is celebrated around the world in medical journals, which find over and over again that married people are healthier and survive illness at significantly higher rates than those who are widowed, divorced, or, worse, going through a stressful separation.
