Marriage is great. Gay people should be able to do it.

Marriage is good for upward mobility if one marries the right person.

Marrying the wrong person leads to a definite downward mobility. Thus, in one sense, divorce leads to upward mobility if it means ditching a spouse who has borderline personality disorder, is additcted to shopping, or is addicted to drugs.

The best assurance for a marriage leading to upward mobility is to either marry someone one knows well, (including the future in-laws,) or doing a very in-depth background check of the potential spouse BEFORE marriage.

This story is promoting divorces and not helping the situation of family and marriage where mobility is not a primary goal. Anyone putting mobility and personal selfish desires above the needs of tier family and marriage is doomed to be a failure.

Mobility is not the amreican dream and education is not the path to happiness or property as government and education is implying. Real education begins after degrees are acquired when skills and knowledge and social lives are developed.

We are not born to be mobility oriented hunter gatherers anymore. Civilization means we stay and work the land, work and raise families, work and share kindness and civil dialogue and lives. Civilization is leaders, and healers, and wisdom of knowledge.

Mobility is warlords, wars, and infighting greed coveting others property. This is not the American dream. Prosperity through labor skills and knowledge and love is the amreican dream. Obama's way of life is destructive and evil to civilization and orderly economy.
