MARRIED WITH CHILDREN?
A Pew Research Center survey on marriage and parenting found that Americans no longer believe having children is an important factor for a successful marriage.
Instead, sharing household chores, good housing, adequate income, a happy sexual relationship and faithfulness have outpaced the children factor by 3 to 1.
Couples say the main focus of marriage now is the mutual happiness and fulfillment of adults rather than bearing and raising children.
That attitude may be all well and good for the young Generation Next. But I guarantee any self-respecting, selfish "Q-Tip" in 2060 won't be singing that tune, especially when family caregivers are non-existent.
On a bright note - without all that baby-making going on - there might be a glimmer of hope in the future of finding affordable housing at the Shore (and no parkway delays getting there).
