Okay, we can probably cite an ample number of examples on both sides of
wedlock. As extropy accelerates, will marriage gain or lose adherents
and/or percentage points? As people live longer and healthier lives it
seems to me they will tend to include more than one pair-bond, and so they
will extend their families (their significant others) beyond the tenets of
marriage. IOW, the trend toward dissolved marriages will continue (as it
has for the last three decades).
