    More "tendentious twaddle" from the press. The Far Left continues to promote the idea of the "death of marriage" because its goal is to destroy the family unit.

    I'm sorry SE, I just saw this.

    Those articles just want you to believe that load of you-know-what.
    As the reporter stated, despite the fact there are more couples living together than there has been in the past, people are still getting married.

    Getting married is BIG business. The average wedding now cost 24-28 thousand dollars. With gifts included, approx 72 billion dollars are spent on weddings annually. Those of us who conduct the ceremony are the least paid of all.

    I recently was in contact with a bride who is planning a rather large wedding; 300 guests, renting the Hall of Mirrors for her reception. Said she didn't want to pay over $200 for the person who marries her. She wanted to "concentrate on the important stuff, like the cake & her dress." These 'girls' don't realize that they can get married without a cake or a dress. They cannot get married without someone that's legal to prounouce them husband & wife. They need to get some of their priorities straight. They get too caught up in the planning; more thought needs to be put on the marriage.

    There are also a few drawbacks to this living together thing. Since we're talking statistics....couples who just live together to "see if they are compatible" usually don't make it to the altar. Seems the couple needs that commitment in place, the betrothal, in order for it to actually come to fruition.
