More than half of American households, are now 'unmarried.' Is this a passing phase, or a portent of fundamental change, in America?

Actually, the method used to measure the divorce rate, makes it quite misleading.Does household mean they have to be home owners, or just co inhabit? With the divorce rate as high as it is, I dont see this as a bad thing.
I think it's the next sad step in our self-centered culture. It's hard to get married when you're 27 and still living at home to pay off your debts from all the things you wanted and had to have Right Now. I also think some people have their self-image dialed up way too high, and forgotten their own warts and failures, and want an escape hatch from anyone who might be "regular". BTW, I hope these two demographics are not as prevalent as I'm suspecting or seeing today. That said, I do know people who have lived together in a committed relationship who were not married (for one reason or another) and completely self-sufficient.Originally Posted by Thomas

And I don't think that's good.Originally Posted by Ivan Kipling
