Hi I'm new.
Just wanted to say that this is soooo commmon where I work, actually in our area (rural south). It is so very sad, makes me very nervous for what the future holds for my own children. Do you think it's more of a demographic problem, or a socio-economic one? Just curious to know what your thoughts are.
Um... we are not poor hillbillies if that is what you are asking! I actually grew up in a prominent CT neighborhood. My mom and dad just got married young and divorced and my dad found a younger woman to marry. My mom marries for money and so I always lived in nice places with money. It has nothing to do with socioeconomic issues. Plus I am in the North. If you bring your kids up right and make sure they know to marry the one they love and will not break thier commitment to then this will not happen to them. I have been married for almost 9 yrs now and I take my marriage vows seriously and I do not plan on ever remarrying unless my husband passes away on me, young. You can stay married to your wife/husband and/or not have any more kids and this way your kids will not run into having brothers and sisters while they are older and having thier own kids.
