IN THE WORDS OF THE MAN FROM PLAINS, "WHY NOT THE BEST?" :

Marriage it's difficult but still the ideal state (Patricia Redlich, 3/24/02, Irish Independent)
"Being married, rather than single, separated, widowed or even remarried, has a more powerful impact on well-being for both men and women than either income or employment. These benefits take the form of greater happiness, better health, longer life, more and better sex, higher income and better outcomes for children."

Compare Ms Redlich's column to this one from the American Prospect, which admits her point, but surrenders the battle Nostalgia as Ideology (Stephanie Coontz, American Prospect)
