Well, duh.

Now that was annoying.

I couldn’t help being good and ticked off this morning when The Today Show ran a segment Why More Couples  Refuse To Divorce.

The author being interviewed, who just came out with a book called In Spite of Everything, went on to argue that Gen-Xer’s,  so many of whom were the children of divorce, are staying married longer because they don’t want to do to their children what was done to them.

This really ticks me off.  Like we didn’t want to stay married? Like we DIDN’T try to make it work?

Or maybe I was just jealous because she got her book on the Today Show, and I didn’t.

    And maybe it’s the economy that is keeping them together. I’m always wary of these grand generalizations which are usually based on talking to a few couples who may or may not be representative of what is really going on. Plus, people give you “reasons” for what they are doing which they think you will find acceptable.

    What always ticks me off is when divorce is described as “taking the easy way out.”
