Shortly after meeting George Schuyler Josephine visited her family to celebrate Christmas with them. The family's Negro servants, who had influenced Josephine's development intensely, were also there. Josephine felt tormented throughout the holiday season because she sensed the tremendous risk she would be taking by marrying a Negro. She could see that marrying George would result in the separation of the bond she had with her family, disinheritance, and isolation. Yet her passion and love for George won out and she decided to marry him.
