New Jerseyans are great people and anyone would be lucky to marry us. We’re very diverse, but there are some things we have in common. The following are just a few of the many wonderful reasons to marry someone from our great state.
1. We're honest.
Just call us Abe! We're not afraid to tell you how it is and have no problem expressing our honest opinion.
2. We're laid back.
We can relax and be flexible. It must be all the lazy beach days rubbing off.
3. We have a good sense of humor.
We've been the butt of jokes for so long (armpit of America???) that we know how to laugh at ourselves.
4. We're tough as nails!
We know how to fight for a spot, whether a parking space or the best patch of sand on the beach. We manage to survive in one of the most expensive states to live in, and, we deal with HOT summers, COLD winters and crazy traffic. We can handle whatever comes our way.
5. We're totally fine with taking turns driving.
We're used to some crazy traffic, driving in your state should be a piece of cake.
6. We get stuff done.
The pace of life is a little faster in New Jersey. We get everything done with time to spare!
7. We're not afraid to tell you how we feel.
Bottling it all up is no good, and we don't have a problem expressing ourselves. We'll tell you exactly how we feel, even if you may not like it.
8. We know where to find the best pizza and bagels.
Right here in our home state, of course.
9. We're smart!
Based on median IQ and average SAT score, we're the 5th smartest state in the nation.
10. We value our family.
Family values have always been important in our state. Often, we have big families, and we tend to be very close.
11. We're tons of fun.
We'll show you a great time at the shore, or anywhere else!
12. We appreciate nature.
Even if we're not the outdoorsy type, we appreciate nature's beauty. We're surrounded by it! (Yes, out-of-staters, New Jersey is more than just the Turnpike, we have amazing state parks. Wharton is pictured.)
What else makes New Jerseyans marriage material? Don’t be humble, I know we’re great!
