The President as Jewish Mother [Jan. 15th, 2004|02:49 am]
Just me.

Bush administration officials are planning a $1.5 billion election-year initiative to promote marriage, especially among low-income couples, the New York Times reported on Wednesday.

Other planned initiatives focus on eating more vegetables, sending your grandmother a thank-you note, and visiting more often, because I'm not getting any younger, you know.

$1.5 billion to encourage marriage!?!?! How about $1.5 billion to feed children, help the handicapped, help the states out of their federally created budget crisis?

Let's talk marriage for a minute. Being married and having a child kept people out of Vietnam. No wonder so many people rushed into marriage in the 1960's and no wonder the divorce rate spiked up later.

There is talk in congress of including draft registration to young women as well as men. When Bush brings back the draft in his second term he will increase marriage. But it will also increase unhappy marriage and later divorce rates.

I fully support my step-daughter living with her boyfriend. She did it for two years and then they broke up. If they had decided they had to be married in order to live together they would be either miserable or getting divorced. It ain't sin, it's common sense.
