Endangered species: married couples

Married couples are on the verge of becoming a minority.  A Pew Research Center study released today shows that just over half, 51% of those over 18 are married.  A decade ago, the number was 57%.  College graduates are more likely to marry.  Nearly two thirds have tied the knot. 

So I'm doing my part.  Twenty years ago today, I marched down that aisle in way too many ruffles and bows (it was the Princess Di influence) and said "I do" to a nice guy from Chicago named Tad Daley and have lived happily ever after.  More or less. I highly recommend it.
