    Well, if the prediction is that single will be the Next Big Thing, then of course children of single parents will be better prepared *for that future*.

    Besides that: I applaud this! In the Netherlands, we already have a single prime minister. When he is received by other public figures and their partner nobody really cares about his singledom and he is not strange because of it.

      I didn’t know that. I think that we still have a ways to go before we have a single president here, although I believe it will happen in my lifetime.

        James Buchanan was a single president (the only one we’ve had while in office in the United States).

        And I agree that this single-arity/single citizen is becoming a trend. It seems there are more singles now than ever before. People will always get married but a new trend is forming. More folks are cohabitating and/or just opting out of marriage.
