Last week, I read a (not very convincing) article on the rising trend of unmarried cohabitation and the downsides of living together before marriage. I had a big post drafted about my own experiences with premarital cohabitation and was all set to reject the author’s point through my own positive experiences. But, then the author went and made a mess of the article by linking to studies that contradict her point of view. As I said, a not very convincing article.
What I’d rather focus on is the New York Times and its personality disorder. I’m serious. Because, if you’ll remember, not so long ago, the very same newspaper wrote an article about how people who live alone are weird. And now they’re suggesting that living with a partner before marriage is a recipe for disaster. So, if living alone is a no no and living together before marriage is a no no, what the hell is a yes yes? Are we now supposed to get married right after college, so we never live alone or cohabitate without the ring? What is this, 1950? Good grief!?
