Hispanic Marriage Day October 12th

Tomorrow is National Hispanic Marriage Day (Festival Nacional del Matrimonio Hispano-Latino), with events scheduled in Sacramento, California and Dallas, Texas. UNIVISION Radio Dallas is a sponsor. Tune in if you're in the area.

The Orange County (CA) Register reports, from a survey of 2,000 Californians:
"While just 57 percent of the general population said they want to get married, 75 percent of Latino respondents said they do."

Unfortunately, nearly half the Latinos respondents say the high likelihood of divorce makes marriage too risky. One in three Latinos never marries, twice the rate of non-Latinos.

Let those couples whose marriages stand as models for the rest of us know. And, if you're not married, consider offering to babysit so a married couple with kids can celebrate their marriage with a date on October 12th.
