a comparison.....

Statement of Fact: High Schoolers graduate HS and too many of them can't read or write. The value of a HS Diploma is getting lower and lower.
QUESTION: Should we, as a society, allow this deterioration to continue...and perhaps even allow more and more unqualified students to graduate? Should we accept the further errosion of the value of a HS Diploma, or should we do something that makes this diploma worth something?

Statement of Fact: The State of Marriage has deteriorated over the last several decades.....for many reasons that you have listed.
QUESTION: Should we, as a society, allow this deterioration to continue...and perhaps even allow more and more unqualified people to marry? Should we accept the further errosion of the value of amarriage, or should we do something that makes marriage worth something more than what it currently is? Some people say "let it deteriorate" I say, lets examine the problems and do something to strengthen this institution.

No-Fault divorce might be something to look at, as well as many of the other issues you have brought up. Further diluting the institution of marriage does not strengthen marriage. It weakens our communities.

Good question. Others here might look at such conservative thinking and conclude it nothing but the droolings of a leftist troll. Unfortunately, they have a right to post here too. Keep up the good posts.
