Fun with Dick & Jane?

This was in the newspaper:

“More Pennsylvanians checked off ‘unmarried partner’ under relationship status in the 2010 Census. Households headed by married couples no long make up the majority of households in the state, mirroring a national trend. More households are headed by unmarried partners and the number of households led by same-sex couples is rising.”

Those facts shocked me. So, I tried to talk myself out of the shock: “Things have changed. Don’t be so old fashioned. The typical family of the past (Mother, Father, Dick, Jane, Sally, Puff and Spot) is now atypical. Get over it.”

I can’t “get over it.” It’s written on my heart, something’s wrong when the basic family unit is crumbling.

J.C. will not be replaced with P.C.

  1. How is the family unit crumbling just because people are living in similar ways but without a piece of paper?
