(Why do they make that so hard to do?)

We might wonder how it came to be that we started meeting psychiatric diagnostic criteria for addiction, not for heroin or alcohol, but for a social media site.

If the Entire Human Race Had a Facebook Page, The Relationship Status Would Read "It's Complicated"

American Anthropological Association

Marriage in the U.S. is as richly complicated as America is. It is to this complexity that I will lift a celebratory glass: to all those who boldly explore the unknown territories of happily-ever-after in a nation of dreamers, risk-takers, lovers and fighters of the good fight.

I can empathize with the exhaustion of the wedding circuit, schlepping gifts of blenders and karaoke machines hither, thither and yon. But I dont' understand the need among some singles to be cheered on in their singledom like newlyweds dashing toward a shaving cream-streaked car.
