Marriage as a legal contract with lawyers & judges abusing and financially raping the families will continue to make marriage less prevalent.
Marriage as a spiritual/religious commitment is surely a more enlightened and moral approach.

American Law and Lawyers are toxic and stain all they touch.

Wow! Please don't label all lawyers as toxic. Not all of us want to bled the opposition dry while billing as many hours as we can legally get away with.

When couples decide to split and seek my help, my first question will always be "Have you tried to work the termination of your marriage out without legal intervention." If the answer is yes, then my goal will always be to achieve a fair and equitable split.

As in all professions, there are some good laywers and some bad ones. Good lawyers just don't get as much press as the bad ones.

According to our Christian friends, if Gay marriage is legalized then that would open the door for people to marry their dog, their iguana, or an inanimate object - but they never considered that it would also help boost the sagging marriage rate, and add a much needed shot in the arm to the wedding planning industry. As soon as Gay marriage is legal in my state, I'm going to marry my pool table.

I was married to a dog! Lots of people are married to vampires and snakes too! Oh and one of the most popular mates is the rat! I even have a cousin who is married to a dragon! So I don't know what these Christian cakebakes are yapping about. We have been practicing interspecies marriage for quite some time.

  The smallest administrative unit is the family.  In a declining organization (Nation)  the family unit is failing to sufficiently rear the next generation for leadership and productivity.

IT could NEVER be that older men are advising all young men who will listen about the anti-male divorice laws. It could never be because of the divorice laws, men are making a conscious decision not to participate.

Of course women want to still get married, If I got prizes in divorice, I would too.

You are equal now, MAKE YOUR OWN LIVING!!

Truth well spoken but muzzled by those milking the Golden Goose..

The legacy of angry toxic feminists and their legal sycophants.

the marginal value of marriage is decreasing all the time. its benefits get less and less and its costs are remaining the same or perhaps even increasing. i'll likely follow in my friends footsteps and just cohabitate, have children and let my wife rake in the subsidies for being a 'single mother'.

You don't quite get how the welfare laws work, do you?

And way to let your unmarried single mother wife do the heavy lifting for you. What a man.

This guy is a perfect example of why women do not want to get married anymore. We are smart and capable and don't want to be saddled with some guy who is not pulling his own weight. My sister's ex has been "unemployed" for over 2 years, is not trying to find a job, and is completely happy with his parents paying his mortgage. Needless to say, he hasn't paid any child support in 2 years either. Today's men are worthless.

This article leaps to correlations that may well not be there. I choose to think that marriages are declining because young people have grown wiser, earlier. It should be apparent that in our historical period, marriage is a bad to very bad deal for all concerned. That young people seem to get this is a very positive development!

I want to get married; I don't think I'm unwise for wanting to either. But I also don't care about having some big stupid, way too expensive wedding. I just want to be married to the person I want to spend the rest of my life with.

It is a fact that until the mid 19th Century in England, only the rich got married. The reason for this was that only the rich had estates that needed to be passed on to their children. Common law relationships were just fine for everyone else.The "golden ages" of the past were only golden for the rich. So we are coming around to "SNAFU--Situation Normal etc) again.

I look for public workhouses and debtor's prisons to be reinstated soon as well.

make divorces fair and you'd see a lot fewer of them and probably more marriages too

And I'll bet the divorce rate did not drop at an equal rate.
Eventually you will want our money, so gay marriage will become fully legal for that reason. It's always about money.
The gays can save America!

It's Obama's healthcare bill. Now that kids can be on their parent's health insurance till they are 26, they have no reason to get married. At least that is what Michelle Bachman says in some new movie that she and woman on the far right are in. LOL.
