Geez I've lost a lot of years to couplehood. I'm rethinking the need society has on making all single people feel bad if they're not paired. Why the investment in convincing marriage? For stable families is the obvious answer. But what about communal life? Couldn't we have networks that would care for children in tribe like groups? No divorce, because no marriage. A child wouldn't have to rely on the continuation of his parents marriage. He could feel a stability in the network. Maybe grandparents, single or married would play an integral role for kids. Give purpose to elders too.
