  •  The decline of marriage is not just an outcome (0+ / 0-)

    of the decline of industrial jobs for men. The numbers the author gives regarding children without marriage distorts the reality. Many of those are not 'women living alone' but couples living together married in all but name. After a couple of years of cohabitation they are in effect legally married without the formal, public ceremony. I think the author is overinterpreting the data on this point though I agree with much of the rest of what she is saying.

    We have only just begun and none too soon.
