Non marriage


I have some good news and some bad news. The good

news is the divorce rate is going down. The bad news is that’s because

a lot of people don’t get married anymore. Now I’m not talking about

two lovebirds sharing a nest for a while or two old people sharing

their lives. I’m talking about young people living together and having

kids and not making any commitment to each other.
