By now, you've probably heard the widely touted statistic that the divorce rate in the U.S. is 50%. According to the Pew Research Center, though, the rate of divorce is on the decline (along with the rate of marriage).

And Baby Makes Three

  I used to think that if something didn’t turn out right (cake batter or laundering a stained blouse, say) the way to apply a fix was to add something.  More flour to the batter.  An applique over the stain.  I’d like to say those solutions worked, but we both know better.
