And yet I also know this: Many of my friends who are in loving, monogamous relationships are very leery about the idea of getting traditionally hitched. Maybe the soaring divorce rates of their adolescence spoiled them on marriage for good? Or maybe they've just got a bad case of collective cold feet? It's impossible to know, really.
But whatever the cause, I hope every last one of them will continue taking their relationships seriously. Because while we may indeed be living in a freaky-deeky world, it's a heck of a lot easier to navigate – and a whole lot more fun - when you're living through it with a loving and devoted partner in crime.
