long week and weekend

I was passed along an interesting article about the marriage trends of our times, based on recent studies from Rutgers University… I personally find it bad form for those that push for marriage, a la matchmakers, or those that pester and harass single young adults, about marital commitment, and the teasing of unattached singles; I believe a person should have the autonomy in deciding who to make a lifelong commitment to in marriage; yet at the same time, for those who are putting it off later and later in life, that too has bad consequences– average age of marriages has risen from early 20’s in the 1960s to well over 25 today.. with Christian ethics that prohibit sexual infidelity, and puberty that is hitting in the early teens, that’s up to 20 or more years of sexual restraint, and we all know how uncomfortable that can be. Rather than prompting the idea of not getting married until all the graduate degrees and financial independence can be achieved, let’s give young adults the freedom to marry during their college years, and do life along the way more holistically
