They married to join good families, to produce heirs, and to have children to work on the family farm. I believe they often married fro survival, especially among the pioneers blazing trails to California, Washington State and Oregon.

In order for a marriage relationship to succeed, there must be a foundation upon which partners build a relationship. They do this over time with experiences that add something to the foundation rather than to destroy it.
