Recently, I watched a video online regarding marriage preparation in the U.S. in the 1950s. As you can imagine, it’s a sweet and innocent portrayl; and surprisingly it makes some useful points that are still relevant today. However, was marriage actually easier back then? Where the expectations surrounding marriage different from today? In order to answer these questions, there are a number of factors to consider from women in the workforce to men being drafted into the military.
One of the best ways to gather this information is to speak with those who know it first-hand. I’d like to interview people who got married in the ’50s and ’60s in the U.S. and who are open to sharing their experiences.
If you know of individuals and couples who fit this description and who may be interested in being interviewed for my project, please let me know by sending a message through my contact page. Thank you!
