Unless one is going for an immigration benefit fewer people are getting married. The blame is not entirely on the Obama economy, as there are other factors.
My own case is an excellent example of this. I have been dating and supporting a family for almost six years. I have not considered marriage because the financial risks would be prohibitive. Moreover
having experienced what divorce attorneys do first hand I am not going back for round two. Malicious accusations of sexual abuse of children is common ( not my case) and the impact that it has is never discussed. This has happened to at least two coworkers. Actual abuse of children are far more apt with the subsequent romantic interest than the biological father.
Much of the marriage decline belongs squarely on lefties. Liberal divorce laws and vile anti male legal tactics have made marriage prohibitive. Add in absurd Obamacare costs and tax incentives for not marrying and you get the picture.
