Freedom of Choice

Dear Short Answers:
Do you think that marriage means anything anymore?  Most of my parents’ friends are divorced and most of my own friends aren’t interested in getting married.  Is “just living together” the wave of the future?

Dear M:
The divorce rate peaked in the late 1970’s and early 80’s. It is actually lower now, in part because fewer people get married. Marriage continues to mean a great deal to many, and we advocate that choice for couples who are willing and able to make a long-term commitment. Living together is not a new phenomenon.  We think it is an acceptable first step or even a landing point.
