The warm melting beauty of spring invades
our hearts and brings love to serious thoughts
of marriage. Every year April and May with
their wiles beguile us into dreams of the future, with the result that many marriages take
place even before the traditional time for brides,
A current magazine discusses the problem
of student or collegiate marriage. There is to
some of the older generation a touch of re
assurance in the very fact that the youth of
today still regards marriage as the great insti
tution. Still others refuse to be encouraged by
this disregard of such wild schemes as com
panionate marriage and free love by the col
legians, and insist that marriage for college stu
dents is a bad thing.
There are, of course, certain pertinent points,
such as money, children, marriage for those
who are immature in judgment; still in the examples nearest us, there seem to be in every
case sensible solutions for individual problems.
Statistics in the magazine article mentioned
say that the grades of the married students,
even the younger ones, are much higher than
those of the unmarried collegians. They say
that there is an equality, a basis of common
sense in contact with the opposite sex found
in the
university which forms a
perfect background for marriage.
They declare, these frank statistics, that the divorce
courts are not thronged with collegiate marriages which have "gone on the rocks." In
fact, the writer of the article emphatically
states that If marriages were made in college
that the divorce courts would not be busy at
There are many exceptions, no doubt, but too
much is being made of these exceptions. Too
little attention is being paid to the lasting, sincere, sensible unions founded on the campus
and in the classrooms. There is no doubt that
marriage puts a serious tone on life; that it
makes girls and boys into men and women,
and clears away the frivolities of freshman
and sophomore days which need to be discard-
