Frankly, I don't accept the premise that "The American Family" is falling apart. Family is not synonymous with mother and father, married, in the home with the child. Families can be, and usually are, a lot bigger than that. Also, as mentioned above, a couple does not need the government to recognize their relationship to be in one. And, lets be realistic, at this point in time, marriage is nothing more than a government license to love your partner. So, fuck that shit.
