"If a disease were to afflict the majority of a populace, spreading pain and dysfunction throughout all age groups, we would be frantically searching for reasons and solutions. Yet this particular scourge has become so endemic that it is virtually ignored. The scourge is divorce, an oddly negative topic in a nation that has the worse record of broken marriages in the entire world. Divorce is the ‘root problem’ in our country and is the cause of any number of other social ills. ” – George Gallup, Jr.
