    from Ohio.  We're both from Ohio and we raised our children in Ohio; but when it was time to go to college, I strongly suggested that my children go to strongly democratic cities in blue states where they would have a greater selection of appropriate mates who were Democrats.  All of them married from truly moderate to progressive Democrats and they all show every indication of remaining married.  

    I spent the the last week-end with very nice Democrats from MIssouri, Tennesee, and Nebraska.  They did not do the same thing.  Their haul of results included, amidst a light scattering of Democratic marriages and retained loyalty to the Democratic party, ttwo Republican inlaws, two children who became Republcians and one daughter who became a radical right wing Christian. This business of keeping Democrats in the family is an odds game.  The more personality varieties among Democrats available to your marriagable children, the better their odds are of marrying Democrats and remaining Democrats.

    In short, you are influenced and marry who you know.
