I guess it's odd for a 22 year old single male with no immediate love interests to say this in today's world, but I've been thinking a lot lately about marriage and how it relates to the way people live their lives. I honestly don't have much to say about it, but I thought it might be worthwhile to link to two really interesting articles on the subject, just in case anyone else is interested.
The first is one I just read on CNN.com called "She's happily married, dreaming of divorce" (which might explain the motivation for this post), and the other is an article that was published several months ago in The Freeman called "Capitalism and the Family." Actually, the author of the latter article, Steven Horowitz, gave a really excellent lecture on the same subject at FEE's Applying Liberty seminar, which can be found here.
I really don't have anything to add just yet, except to say that I kinda wish I wasn't in the generation that's really going to have to be figuring this stuff out for the first time. Blech.
