the only way marriage can survive is if men become house hubbies so that women can run the world and still have babies. if that doesn't become the norm, there is no way marriage will make it. women have so many options now (most paid for by the nanny state) that, simply put, they have begun the process of controlling the social construct and men will either become compliant and enabling or they will be pushed aside and forgotten. this is not a reversible situation. protect your assets boys 'cause they're comin' after you.
